Ghostbusters on the other hand was complete shit. It was a terrible idea that had no redeeming qualities imo.
Yes, I think the supporting cast in Charlie - the family background bit - was fine, and could have fit into a better movie. There's not a good word I could say about Ghostbusters - unless it's a subversive, avant-garde art piece exploring the boundaries of badness.

But I found them both not just failures, but teeth-grindingly obnoxious.

EDIT: I liked this RLM look back at Willy Wonka. I think they captured the stark difference to the remake.
