Excerpt: Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) is the owner of a 5 star hotel for monsters. He has a daughter named Mavis (Selena Gomez) who falls for a fun human named Jonathan (Andy Samberg). Thin plot, Dracula surviving sunlight and the message of letting go child was the low points. The gags and soundtrack were terrific, nothing groundbreaking or special about the entire film. A family flick for kids which showcases a variety of monsters.
Summary: The thing that I liked most about the movie was the relationship between Dracula and his daughter. The human made me laugh and certain other parts as well. But not many. The ending was cute. I wished I could have liked this movie. I really did.
Excerpt: For those of you that are loyal readers of my reviews (I love you all) you will know that i usually watch these kind of films due to my children. However now i am tending to watch alot of these computer animated (The new age cartoons) films on my own as i am really starting to enjoy them. Hotel Transylvania is one of them, my daughter had seen it in it's initial theatrical run and told me she really enjoyed it.
Summary: A truly family-fun movie, that presents all our favourite monsters together, and then, typically, drops a young backpacker in the middle of them, who then.... I would like to go on & on, but I suggest you find the merits (funny, fast-paced, fabulous, etc. etc.) of this film on your own by watching it with your family. Highly Recommended.
Conclusion: The Count has set up a Hotel for Monsters to have a safe Vacation away from humans. Its his daughter One Hundred and Eighteenth Birthday but the Party organizing is hampered when A Human tries to Book a room!! Like other kids movies the story isnt to complex and theres a lot of cliches but theres plenty of laughs and theres plenty of action at a suitable pace. All round good family film. Also a good modern take on Dracula.
