Hotel Transylvania - My Movie Review
Hotel Transylvania owner Dracula (Adam Sandler) pulls double duty as an overprotective dad when an unwelcome suitor (Andy Samberg) shows interest in his teenage daughter (Selena Gomez). All the while, he's hosting world-famous monster guests like Frankenstein, his bride and a werewolf family.
My children have been very excited about this movie, so when my daughter found the red Netflix envelope in our mailbox today we had to cancel our afternoon plans in order to watch it. I loved Dracula’s character, his facial expressions, his over-dramatic reactions to every little thing. The action never stops so this motion picture will glue the kids’ eyes to the screen. It glued mine, too.
The essence of the story is not original: an overprotective single father, deceased mother, rebellious teenaged daughter, and forbidden love. But the storyline is fairly unique. Hotel Transylvania is fun for the whole family. Your kids will love it.
