We went to see Hotel Transylvania the other week. I have been excited for the movie, Tim- well he wasn't so excited.
We took the 10 year old with us after clearing it with her mom. We settled in and prepared to either be wow'd or disappointed- there really was no middle ground that I could see.
For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about- Hotel Transylvania is an animated movie currently out in theatres. Dracula (Sandler) builds a hotel for monsters, safe from persecution from humans. As his daughter Mavis's 118th birthday approaches, he plans a huge party for his baby girl- only to discover that somehow a human has found his way in to the hotel.
It was great!
This movie was Adam Sandler at his best. He was fully able to be goofy and over the top, but we didn't have to look at him. I really think that made all the difference. No crazy faces and odd gestures to distract from the actual movie.
The plot line was cute and had all of us laughing, though the 10 year old we were babysitting cracking up the most. Her new favorite thing is to walk around and quote a few memorable parts from the movie. High praise from the kid who originally wanted to see Frankenweenie instead.
It's definitely worth seeing.
