Hotel Transylvania 2

The only thing scarier than being a monster is babysitting one.


Hotel Transylvania 2
In the second episode of the series, everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania. Dracula's rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson isn't showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny, Drac enlists his friends to put Dennis through a ''monster-in-training'' boot camp. But little do they know that Drac's grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood (and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania) ... things are going to get batty! This film is releasing in 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version.

Jim Judy quote iconSimply put, the Pixar style magic just isn't there, and once again this feels like a cheap imitation of the real (and far better) thing.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote icon Hotel Transylvania 2 is marginally better than the original, which may or may not be enough of a recommendation to watch 89 minutes of corny, colorfully animated gags from Adam Sandler and company.
