At first, the business was slow and they didn't have even a single job or client. They were struggling; their money was dwindling and their hope was crashing down. But one day, the threesome was called by a prestigious hotel called the Sedgwick Hotel. They were asked to examine a potential haunting, and they found a ghost and placed it in a special ghost holding container.

The guys had to tackle their hardest mission and put a stop to the evil spirit. This movie is rated PG because of mild terror.

If you're making a reboot, and you need a star, who ya gonna call? Melissa McCarthy!
