Comedy gothic isn't exactly novel, and frankly there is a sense here of a movie coasting along on Halloween hype-marketing, without providing as many laughs and ideas as it really could have done.

No one does saccharine like Adam Sandler. The man can be sharp, angry and funny - but when he lays on the sweetness, it's like drowning in an avalanche of Tate & Lyle.

Castle horror versus theme-park tourism. No real winners.

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.

Not since Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein have the great Universal monsters been subjected to such dismal treatment.

Even the animation is ugly.

Hotel Transylvania may lack the emotional oomph of Pixar's best efforts, but it makes up for it with rapid-fire gags and an unflagging pace that makes this a rare all-ages treat.
September 28, 2012
A fast, funny and wildly inventive animated tale with enough laughs and heart to appeal to audiences of all ages.

The film is good goofy fun, even as the plot uncorks a whole lotta nothing.

"Hotel Transylvania" may offer a perfectly fine Halloween-themed getaway for young kids, but there aren't many amenities for Mom and Dad.
September 28, 2012
[Tartakovsky's] wit and attention to detail enliven a collection of well-known ghosts and ghouls.
September 28, 2012
It won't drive you crazy to watch it, but it isn't "The Lion King" either.
September 28, 2012
Feels like a string of jokes without a story.
September 28, 2012
This comedy starring and produced by Adam Sandler feels as slapped together one of the comedian's live-action buddy movies.
September 27, 2012
While it's an energetic romp, there is more slapstick humor than wit at work here, and a good deal of borrowing from the far more clever Monsters, Inc.
September 27, 2012
Every generation of trick-or-treaters deserves its monster mash.
September 27, 2012
The movie loses its originality as it rolls toward its predictable conclusion, but it's still lovely to look at.
September 27, 2012
There's much to enjoy here in a disposable way, particularly jokes about monsters having ordinary problems with kids and spouses.
September 27, 2012
"Hotel Transylvania" never becomes the great monster mash that seemed in the offing.
