Movie Review: Hotel Transylvania

Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula's (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here's a little known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also a dad. Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – can kick back in safety and peace. 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.

The trailer of this movie was too funny to say no, so here i am...disappointed :p

While the animation is really cool and it has the base for a good and entertaining animation movie, it lacks too many things. The story is way too predictably and cheesy. I felt there was nothing new there than the usual father-daughter relationships and love at first sight. The only characters with a certain depth are Dracula and Mavis, the rest are just there to make you laugh. And here we come to another problem...

Except the fact that 90% of the funniest scenes are in the trailer, the movie in general is not that funny. It actually tries so hard to be funny that it gets boring and tiring. 9 out of 10 lines are "jokes" and you are expected to laugh. But you don't.

The music is horrible. They should have leave songs in animation movies to Disney. It was simple TERRIBLE.

I can't say i enjoyed it as expected. Way below my expectations. Kids might find more funny, though there are better movies to watch than this one.


  1. Eye-catching animation and non-stop jokes make this animated monster movie a lot more fun than we expect. It's packed with gross-out gags that will keep kids laughing, plus clever character-based humour for the grown-ups. :D

  2. I have fun with, lead to I diѕcoverеd exactly what I used to
