Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up and no humans are allowed. One special weekend, Dracula (Adam Sandler) has invited all his best friends – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more – to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s (Selena Gomez) 118th birthday. For Dracula catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem but the party really starts when one ordinary guy stumbles into the hotel and changes everything!

In a nutshell, Count Dracula's "Little Daughter Mavis" has a coming of age 118th birthday party. All the monsters are at the hotel, safe in the midst of nowhere. What Mavis wants most is freedom. But like any dad, dear old Drac doesn't want his little girl to actually grow up and move out. Bleh-bleh, bleh.
Human, Jonathan, a free spirited young man somehow finds himself at the hotel. This is a definite no-no as humans are NOT allowed. This is the last bastion of safety for monsters.
What transpires during course of the film is Dracula letting go his baby to her womanhood. If it were not for the "monsters," and by no means are they scary except maybe the very young or some children who do not really have a grip on reality, this could be any movie at all. The message, regardless of how it was presented, is the same. A father's love is uncondltional and only daughter is the apple of his eye.
Highly recommended, even if it's not Halloween!
That being said, the "overbearing parent needing to know when to let go" theme was done better with Brave, which not only was more original and engaging, it was visually stunning, making Hotel Transylvania's graphics feel a bit 'Scooby-doo'.
Oh, the end credits have some great backdrop art. I watched them to the very end. I'd pay for framed pictures of some of those stills.
Overall this movie is great for kids, appropriate even for toddlers, and has enough humor to engage mom and dad, too, all the ingredients for an awesome family movie. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
