Hotel Transylvania 2

Critics Consensus

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.

Movie Info

Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania's doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn't showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac's cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.

Critic Reviews for Hotel Transylvania 2

All Critics (109) | Top Critics (26) | Fresh (60) | Rotten (49)

  • Kids are not likely to get the jokes about Gary Oldman​'s wig in the 1992 film Dracula, nor sympathise closely with the emotional difficulties Drac faces in becoming a grandparent. Adults... will have seen virtually all of this before.

  • Like the first entry in this animated Sony Pictures franchise, the film is spirited, engaging, and has an idea: it's about mutual tensions between the undead and the living, who have forged a truce up in the Carpathians.

    October 25, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An engaging and sometimes witty coming-of-age story, it is a patch above some of Sandler's recent live-action films.

  • Hotel Transylvania 2 is a consistently amusing vampire animation.

  • A fangless sequel.

  • "Hotel Transylvania 2" is an unfortunate throwback to about 20 years ago, when animated movies were more widely accepted as cinematic babysitters.

Audience Reviews for Hotel Transylvania 2

  • Sep 10, 2017
    The characters and the animation may be pretty amusing for kids, the story (will the grandchild turn out to be a monster or can it be raised as one?) might be a bit over their heads, though. There are amusing moments, but hardly any laugh out loud ones and one has to wonder why every animated film lately has to end with the entire cast dancing. Entertaining and nicely animated, but overall mostly for fans.

    See more reviews like this at chrisbreviews.blogspot.com Like many sequels, Sandler and director Genndy Tartakovsky have run out of ideas for the plot and their priorities now seem to have shifted to maintaining the series for as long as possible, with a third film on the way in 2018. Young audiences will enjoy the fantastic animation, minor action sequences, and visual displays accompanied with light humour; especially absurd and slapstick. Adults will be mostly bored by the dragging plot but mildly entertained by the inconsistent humorous scenes and relatable themes. Such themes include familial acceptance, destiny, and expectations. All of which, to Sandler's credit, are important issues and topics to educate children on at an early age, and moreover to allow parents to reflect upon. This would have been the shining aspect of this film if it were not for the obvious contradiction toward it at the climax of the film. Sandler has hired many of his fellow renowned comedians and actors in a desperate plea to increase the film's credibility including himself (Dracula), Selena Gomez (Mavis), Andy Samberg (Johny), Kevin James (Frankenstein), Mel Brooks (Vlad), and David Spade (Jack) among others, even employing Fifth Harmony and Flo Rida for the movie's soundtrack. Many of the characters are one-dimensional and are only in the film for the gags. Some genres attempted to be intertwined are comedy, action, adventure, animation, and family. Elements of various genres are poorly demonstrated which takes a toll on the movies overall quality. Overall, Hotel Transylvania 2 is a very generic animation with more negative than positive aspects. Nevertheless, it is a children's film and should source some mild entertainment from them, albeit it is hardly a memorable film that will be remembered as a piece of one's childhood in future years.

    Much like the first film this is a hit and miss affair. The cast is great, maybe they should stick to voice work compared to the film roles they accept. Cultural references and some funny gags fill the constant story lags.
