140 Words: Hotel Transylvania


Adam Sandler clearly knows how to keep it in the proverbial family. Hotel Transylvania is a movie with a cast list that reads like a who’s who of Sandler affiliated actors, so much so, it wouldn’t surprise me if this had been recorded in-between takes on the set of Grown Ups 2 . This is not a criticism; Grown Ups could have done with some of the wit, intelligence and fun found here. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, Hotel Transylvania is a 3D animation that puts a spin on the typical monster tale. Stuffed to the brim with gags, twists on age-old characters and a rather sweet father/daughter narrative, there is much to be admired, including clean, sharp, impressively detailed and action packed animation.

Entertaining throughout and full of a surprising amount of laughs. Sandler’s best title role since the underrated Funny People.

  1. I also liked this one. Even with a real solid 2012 as far as animated movies go, this one held it’s own.

    • I completely agree. I wasn’t expecting too much before watching but was really surprised and really enjoyed it. I laughed a lot and think it has that great quality where adults and children alike will enjoy it.
