Hotel Transylvania Reviews

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

Has the definite stamp of Sandler and his crew, but in the end it's a fine and very sweet animated family film.

In the role of a concerned father and cartoon monster, Sandler manages to be something he has not been onscreen in a long time: likable.

Kids will enjoy Hotel Transylvania, and it won't bore the socks off adults too.

Laramie Movie Scope

This is a perfectly O.K. animated film. The animation is really quite good. The characters are interesting, but the predictable story isn't very compelling. It is a slightly above average animated feature.

Director Genndy Tartakovsky has fashioned something even the most sensitive little flowers in your family can enjoy.

Jason Buchanan
TV Guide's Movie Guide

The concept of monsters as the good guys and humans as the villains is nothing new in the realm of movies, but Tartakovsky keeps things moving along at a satisfying pace as the stellar voice cast have a field day with their iconic characters.

Checking into this hotel will give you a thrill and get you in the mood for Halloween.

SFX Magazine

With a script by that manages to dilute Adam Sandler's baser instincts with a real love for Universal monsters, Hotel Transylvania is no Grown Ups-style torture.

Observer [UK]

It's inventive, wittily drawn, macabre in a Charles Addams vein, and overlong. Children will find it as much fun as Halloween.

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.

The film gives gothic multiculturalism a good, or at least a giddily digimated, name.

It's no classic but the animation is lively and inventive with some terrifically realised ghouls and the story moves fast.

Monstrously entertaining, frequently hilarious comedy with lively, fast-paced animation, appealing characters, a witty script and terrific voice performances from a superb comic cast.

Adam Sandler is the perfect voice for Dracula and the warm and funny script makes this a solidly entertaining movie.

We only hear him, but this is the best thing Adam Sandler has done in years.

Creative Loafing

Initially, it seems as if viewers are in for the same sort of frat-boy nonsense that Sandler flings out with virtually all his live-action projects. Thankfully, the movie soon shies away from that position and instead manages to deliver genuine laughs.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

There are some great sight gags and witty wordplay, but it's a shame that the script too often grows frantic and desperate for laughs. Gags about mummy flatulence can only take you so far.

Hotel Transylvania doesn't raise the bar for animation or comedy but it's fun, and nice for once to have a different reason to say "boo" after an Adam Sandler flick.

It's all strictly one-note stuff. But it's a funny note, and the film has a grand old time giving us the same type of gag over and over again.

The 3-D adds a vertiginous thrill to a chase on flying tables and a touch of claustrophobia to a maze of underground corridors.
