Dracula's rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn't showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny - and in for a major cultural shock of her own - "Vampa" Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But little do they know that Drac's grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood - and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania - things are going to get batty! [Sony Pictures] Expand

    Whereas the jokes in the “Grown Ups” series feel reactionary and bullying, the family-friendly Hotel Transylvania gags (in the script by Sandler and Robert Smigel) instead come off as clever and humane, even when they’re making fun of helicopter moms and lawsuit-sensitive summer camps.

    Genndy Tartakovsky returns as director, and the creator of "Samurai Jack and Dexter’s Laboratory" has somehow managed to kick up the energy even more for the sequel.

    Hotel Transylvania 2 is minor, to be sure, but given the comedian’s recent work, it still counts as a pleasant surprise.

    If you enjoy Sandler’s brand of obvious humor and don’t mind noticeable Sony product placements, this inoffensive sequel is, like its predecessor, just enough for a Halloween treat.

    Any message about the need for open-mindedness in life and love, however, is muddled by a slapdash plot that ultimately cares less about taking a stand in favor of progressive values than it does in superficially employing such feel-good ideas for unimaginative, hyperactive adolescent slapstick.

    Channeling your inner child, you may find solace in Hotel Transylvania 2, but in the end it has no bite, doing continued disservice to the Universal monsters it scabs out, and adding another soiled feather to Sandler’s cap of mediocrity.

Messages like loving people for who they are and not beingA hilarious, family-friendly movie that surpasses it's predecessor in quality. Messages like loving people for who they are and not being judgmental of people who are different are included among all of the laughs. The theme of familial love leads to some heartwarming moments.

    The animation game is top-notch. Everything looks gorgeous and moves with a fluidity even some of the best looking of animated movies would have trouble pulling off. Everyone involved does fantastic voice work and really bring their characters to life.

    The return to this unique and goofy monster filled world is one worth watching. There's enough humor here to please any member of the family no matter what their age is. Kids are going to eat it up and parents are going to find plenty of laughs to share with them along the way. It's a hit that's fun for the whole family. What more could you ask for?
