Hotel Transylvania

Rating: 4 out of 5.

(spoiler-free movie review)

Hotel Transylvania is a popular movie at my house during the Halloween season. It’s an ideal candidate for a family friendly film to watch with your kids. There’s a recurring joke in the movie about Dracula(Adam Sandler) saying “Blah, Blah, Blah” and how he “doesn’t say that!” It’s a line that’s proven to have legs beyond the movie and I hear repeated around my home frequently.

– Mavis(Selena Gomez) in Hotel Transylvania.

Hotel Transylvania has an all-star cast and each character is expertly voice acted. Jon Lovitz as Quasimodo and Steve Buscemi as Wayne the Werewolf were stand-outs, but everyone was in top-form. Adam Sandler really shines as Dracula and his interactions with Mavis(Selena Gomez) have a genuine father-daughter quality to them.

The writing is excellent with plenty of laughs and I find myself enjoying this movie(and it’s sequels) every year. While not as polished as some of the animated offerings from Pixar, it’s still a crowd pleasing comedy that I whole-heartedly recommend.
