ALWAYS a cute movie!! Always!! Glad it was chosen to be a part of our Fall Family Movie Marathon this year.

A light and funny animated comedy with jokes appealing to a range of ages. It's fun seeing Dracula as an overprotective parent and resort owner, and Jonathan is a wonderful caricature of a youthful world-rover who still manages to have a surprising amount of heart. Fans of the "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" film will find a similar humor and animation style here.

A few sexist/racist/etc "jokes" (the "nagging wife" cliche, "he smells and has too many children", etc)

Nothing spectacular here, but there's rarely anything wrong with the silly colourful fun of a family film. HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA provides just that. A sweet film about a widowed father who finds it hard not to helicopter parent his daughter Mavis, the film adds a nice layer of laughs with its spooky cast of characters. First of all, the father we focus on is Dracula. Then there's his friends, such as Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, and the Mummy. In fact, the Invisible Man is absolutely my favourite, dealing in jokes that invoke our lack of knowledge regarding his physical appearance almost exclusively but sporadically and creatively enough that it compensates for the overall one-note spirit. It's flawed and doesn't stand up to some of the great animated films, especially the Pixar œuvre, but it's a good time nonetheless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Wow, an Adam Sandler film that I actually enjoyed. Could have been better if he didn't include his buddies Spade and James.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: In spite of the child-friendly content, there are four scenes in which Dracula suddenly and briefly assumes a fierce and scary face which may frighten the very young.
