Becky and I took Conroy, Corban and Bianca to see the cartoon Hotel Transylvania at the Regal Cinemas in Lone Tree, CO last week. The Fandango website at Hotel Transylvania describes the movie as follows…
“Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis…”
Hotel Transylvania is a new a new quirky comedy about a hotel that is started by Dracula to keep all monsters away from humans. He builds this story that humans are dangerous creatures for monsters, so that he can protect his daughter from ever having contact with the human population. It’s definitely a strange little flick, but kind of fun for the Halloween season.
The characters are the classic monsters, including skeletons and Frankenstein and the Wolf Man, along with many characters that younger kids will not recognize like The Blob, but it’s pretty well done. It’s not a film you’re going to go to for the intellectual content, but it’s a fun children’s movie for sure. Conroy who is now 14 thought it was stupid, but Corban and Bianca liked it. Becky thought it was a rental, but the kid in me thought it was funny and Worth The Trip.
It’s doing very well at the box office, I saw that it did $42.5 million according to Net Flix, which is pretty amazing how well these children’s movies do compared to traditional films. With those types of revenues, I’m surprised Hollywood doesn’t put more money into kids’ films than adult films. If you miss it at the box office, check it out when it comes on DVD. It’s an entertaining movie.
