The way this collection of monster misfits tackle both each other and the threat of human invasion has the right degree of wit and sophistication to amuse adults whilst being zany and slapstick enough to hold children's attention.

As a straight up monster movie, this film could have had a lot of fun diving further into the stereotypes... and then extending the confrontation that occurs at the end. Instead it's weighed down by the teen romance and need to conceal Jonathan.

The movie is hardly top-notch stuff.

Classic Saturday morning cartoon material, very silly and very much aimed at 5 year-olds.
August 26, 2015
This 91-minute mash-up of Halloween creatures and non-stop silliness hits the ground running and virtually never slows down.

It's isn't awful. Just terribly pleasant, that's all.

Kids might be briefly entertained by the early onslaught of monsters, but the plot concerning the over-anxious father is soon tedious, especially as Sandler repeats the corny Dracula voice he's been doing since his Saturday Night Live days.

Has the definite stamp of Sandler and his crew, but in the end it's a fine and very sweet animated family film.
July 20, 2013
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.

There's a good chance that children under 10 will find "Hotel Transylvania" entertaining, because it's as non-threatening as can be and the jokes are obvious. There's an equally good chance that everyone else will wander off . . .

From the spooked start, the comic-rhythm dial's set to bulldozer. Whizzes through the superficially amusing conceit without actually taking much time to craft cunning comedy. Like a sugar-rushed Count Chocula-meets-Fawlty-Towers idea.

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.

Hotel Transylvania might be useful as a primer to introduce young film fans to some classic screen creatures, but it falls way behind the standard set by wittier animations from the likes of Pixar and Aardman.
October 19, 2012
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.
October 18, 2012
... another empty-calorie animated feature ...

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

It's not good enough to actually like, nor is it bad enough to get worked up about.
October 15, 2012
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.
