Hotel Transylvania (2012)

1h 31m / PG / Animation

Everybody needs a vacation now and then. Doesn’t matter how much you love your job, sometimes you just need to get away from everything for a while. Especially when you’re under threat of persecution by human society because you’re, like, a werewolf or a mummy or Frankenstein’s monster or whatever.

That’s why Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) has turned his castle in Transylvania into a kind of bed-and-breakfast for monsters. They’re welcome to stay with him in his five-star hotel and be safe from the humans who are trying to eradicate them. But when a regular person, Jonathan (Andy Samberg) shows up unknowingly, expecting to book a room, how will Dracula get him to leave without attracting the attention of other humans? And what happens if Jonathan and Dracula’s daughter (Mavis, voiced by Selena Gomez) fall in love? This animated Halloween comedy is a good laugh for all ages.
