This review is from: Hotel Transylvania (Blu-ray / DVD + UltraViolet Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
I finally got a chance to see this movie after seeing all the commercials for it. I figured though that the commercials held the best parts of the movie and I would not be impressed. If I could be any more wrong it would be impossible! Wow what a great movie! It is an absolutely hilarious Monster parody comedy all in one. Monsters afraid of Humans and Humans worshiping the monsters!
The story is about Count Dracula holding up to his promise to protect his diseased wife and his daughter, Mavis. Count Dracula is deathly afraid of Humans and I will not spoil the why he is, but he is protecting Mavis from ever seeing them. He built a castle to keep her safe. Every year he invites all the monsters to his safe haven to celebrate Mavis's birthday. In the movie it is Mavis's (Selena Gomez's voice) 118th birthday, and she is ready to go out into the world and see things.
After twists and turns and the Count trying to protect Mavis too much, Mavis finally meets a backpacking boy named Jonathan. Jonathan and her "Zing", and the rest I will leave up to the movie telling you what happens. It truly is a very funny and interesting movie.
The comedy in this movie is very good not only for children, but adults too. I was very pleasantly surprised to see how good this movie is. It was one of the better animated movies I have seen in the past few months, and I will be watching it again.
Overall I would highly recommend seeing this movie!

I really loved Jonathan's character growth as well. It is such as cute movie! I almost cried when count was telling Jonathan about his wife's death. It was so well done. If only more adult movies were like this.
