Plot Summary

Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: While it's an energetic romp, there is more slapstick humor than wit at work here, and a good deal of borrowing from the far more clever Monsters, Inc. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Sep 27, 2012

Fresh: The film is good goofy fun, even as the plot uncorks a whole lotta nothing. – Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, Sep 28, 2012

Fresh: Every generation of trick-or-treaters deserves its monster mash. – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, Sep 27, 2012

Rotten: Feels like a string of jokes without a story. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Sep 28, 2012

A DECENTLY ENJOYABLE ANIMATED COMEDY

What do you get when you take a whole bunch of famous movie monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, etc.) and give them the voices of well-known Happy Madison actors (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade, etc.)? You get "Hotel Transylvania", a zany, fast-paced animated film with an ingeniously clever concept: Where do the creatures of the night go when they want to get away from it all? And surprisingly enough, it's much better than the trailers may lead you to believe. The colorful animation is exuberantly cartoonish and over-the-top, everyone in the voice cast delivers at least one genuinely funny line, and the story can be sweetly endearing at times, despite its easily predictable, by-the-numbers structure. It's really nothing more than your typical plot about an overprotective dad who does everything he can to shield his daughter from the outside world for "her own safety", only to have his plan ruined by an annoying outsider who quickly falls head over heels for the daughter. A whole bunch of wild antics ensue, lies are told, the truth eventually comes out, everyone throws a big dance party by the end, you get the idea. But even though the plot is pretty basic, it does benefit from some goofy sight gags here and there, as well as a few memorable side characters like the shrunken heads and that creepy old gremlin with the catchphrase, "I didn't do that". Besides Dracula, Mavis (his vampire daughter), and Jonathan (the human who ends up falling for her), none of the other protagonists really stand out. At the most, they just exist for pure comic relief. But I digress. "Hotel Transylvania" is a fun family film overall, even if it does occasionally stumble in the storytelling department more often than not. The fast-paced gags are light and clever enough to entertain both young and old viewers, and the eye-popping animation is equally as enjoyable. As long as you can get past all the generic musical numbers and lackluster narrative clichés, there's no reason why you shouldn't have a good time with this giddy animated romp. It's at least worth a one-time watch, if nothing else.
