Kate McKinnon’s Extensive Ghostbusters Outtakes Are All Must-See Genius

Kate McKinnon’s Holtzmann was already our favorite part of Ghostbusters, but due to the nature of improv, there was so much we didn’t get to see in theaters. Luckily, we live in the future, where home release special features/the Internet come to the rescue, and we all have a front row seat to the awesome power of McKinnon’s comedic genius.

Good improv outtakes are way better than bloopers, too, since they’re not so much mistakes as alternate-and-also-hilarious alternate lines/scenes. Suggestion for home video release: We’d like a mix-and-match version of the movie that allows us to pick any of these alternate versions to play right in the regular cut of the movie, thanks. Build-a-‘Busters!
