It's just like all of the movies now, where there's funny things that the adults get and alot of things that kids like, so everyone is happy watching it.

Hotel Transylvania, directed by Genndy Tartakovsky from a screenplay by Peter Baynham and Robert Smigel, is an animated comedy/horror-spoof, mostly for the kids but fast-paced enough and with enough humor to keep everyone entertained for an hour and a half. It's not as smartly written as 2010's Megamind or as sophisticated and dazzling as 2011's Rango, but it is fun to watch and satisfying in a popcorn-movie kind of way. Adult fans of old horror films will like spotting some of the more obscure monsters (Brain From Planet Arous anyone?) and picking up on some references that will sail over the head of younger viewers.

The plot begins in 1895 where we find a very paternal Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) looking after his infant daughter not long after the death of his wife. Determined to keep her safe from "the humans", Dracula comes up with an idea - to create a sanctuary, a place where monsters of all kinds can come to relax and be themselves without having to constantly worry about humanity coming after them with torches and pitchforks. He directs his servants to convert an old medieval castle hidden deep in the remotest part of Transylvania into a resort/retreat for monsters from all over the world, and voila! - the Hotel Transylvania is born. The hotel is staffed, appropriately, by zombie bellhops, haunted suits of armor, housekeeping witches and talking shrunken heads, with a kitchen overseen by an obsessed lunatic chef Quasimodo (Jon Lovitz) and his pet rat Esmeralda.

Of course the years seem to fly by for a parent, even an immortal one, and before Dracula knows it suddenly it's 2012 and the day of Mavis's 118th birthday (that's 18 in human-growth years).

Hotel Transylvania was a really good cartoon movie. The movie is about a young vampire girl Mavis (Selena Gomez) who wants to go out and explore the world. Her over protective father Dracula (Adam Sandler) does not want his young daughter to go out and mingle with humans. He beleives that humans do not like vampires and will try to hurt her but he did tell her that when she turned 118, she could go. The movie centers around Mavis's 118th birthday and her party. All of her monster friends and relatives come to celebrate and they have an unexpected guest.....a human. Mavis falls for the human and the rest as they say, is history. The movie was cute and age appropriate. I took my 5 year old to see this and did not cringe once. She laughed her little head off. I would see it again anytime. I hope you find your Zing!

It has a wonderful mix of clean, family-friendly humour as well as some adult references which will go right over your kids' heads. Also, anything monster-related is a plus in my book!

Surprisingly funny with a lot going on throughout the movie. Should be a Halloween classic for all ages. Adam Sandler's best movie in quite sometime.

Bought this animated film for the kids but my wife and I liked it so much we remained engaged throughout the movie. Animation is excellent. Acting by everyone is fantasic. Adam Sandler does an impressive job as do the rest of the cast of voices! The story combines classic horror tale (note: nothing terrifying in the movie) with modern theme, i.e., daughter wants to explore the outside world.
Great plot and good finish.

Ultraviolet is NOT so good. Not compatible with Apple iOS devices unless you install another "App."
"Digital Copy" should just support downloading into your iTunes account like other Digital Copy films do. I realize this is due to "Sony" not wanting to compete with Apple, but I will NOT purchase any more Blu-Rays that don't support Digital Copy on iOS devices. Will just purchase the film through iTunes store and will be able to watch on Apple TV and iOS devices.

I took back the Blu-Ray (yes some retailers can be convinced to take returns) and purchased this film from iTunes for much less than the Blu-Ray + Digital Copy.

I would like to remove a star for Sony's handling of digital content, but decided not to because the film is excellent.

Happy viewing!

You know how you see previews for a movie and sometimes you just know you're going to love it. This was def the case. My whole family LOVES this movie. It's so cute. My son calls it the "Bat Movie" and he's watched it so many times he knows all the words. The storyline is really good and all the characters are just great. It's the best!!! Highly Recommended. I can't wait for the 2nd one to come out.
