Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is another solid entry into this family-friendly series of animated movies. It was genuinely funny and full of memorable characters, voiced by a talented cast.

If you enjoyed the first two Hotel Transylvania films than you’ll likely enjoy Summer Vacation. It stays true to the formula with the same characters returning and adds Jim Gaffigan(Van Helsing), Kathryn Hahn(Ericka) and Joe Jonas(The Kraken) to the mix.

The movie was vibrant and colorful although some of the animations were odd, when compared to the previous Hotel Transylvania films. Facial expressions and body language were more exaggerated, in particular with Dracula(Adam Sandler).

Music continues to play an important role in the series and there’s a scene, towards the end of the film, that will have you singing along.
