With a joke well that runs dry nearly an hour too early, watches will be checked and previously unwanted popcorn kernels will be rigorously examined.

Light on intelligent humour, heavy on the slapstick, the result is once again a mixed bag; an animated effort which will please the young viewers, but not anyone older than maybe 10.

It's in that lengthy middle where the film gets lost.

[The big moral is] "Don't worry if you don't fit in, because you will eventually without even trying." Yeah, seriously.

There are few things as sad as an unkept promise, Hotel Transylania 2 does that for movies. [Full review in Spanish]

Hotel Transylvania 2 is not total garbage, but it leaves you with a horrible aftertaste. [Full review in Spanish]

It's hard to believe why this movie got made at all. [Full review in Spanish]

Hotel Transylvania needed a sequel about as much as Kevin James needs a hamburger.

A watered down version of the original. [Full review in Spanish]

The onslaught [of gags] isn't painful, but neither does it do much to distract from the ho-hum story.

It's a cute enough diversion, but it doesn't really amount to much more than Saturday morning cartoons.

While Hotel Transylvania 2 is a visual marvel, it doesn't come anywhere close to the originality of the first movie. The story is weaker, the laughs are infrequent, and you can feel the movie's desperate attempts to seem hip.

Hotel Transylvania 2 offers cute but brainless escapism for young moviegoers - as well as parents looking to distract their children for a few hours.

"Be yourself" proves the obvious takeaway from these exploits, this being a children's movie. I'm just not sure the message rang clear among the sounds of the children screaming.

The jokes are just as easy and fall just as flat, but the film is saved somewhat by a cracking last act.

It risks offense by putting a typically Adam Sandler-ian twist on a tired familial trope, though such risks can often be the only thing enlivening forced franchise installments like this one.

Roughly twice as many laughs as the original. Still not enough, though the little kids will giggle.

Unfortunately, what squeaked across the finish line last time falls short here. We're left with flat, annoying characters and a rote storyline that's too high of a hurdle even for Tartakovsky's visual dynamism.

Where's a wooden stake when you need one?

Its plot comes across as just a rickety skeleton designed to prop up Sandler and company's litany of cornball punchlines and gags, only a few of which cleverly play off of these characters' iconography
