    The cutest darn thing in Hotel Transylvania is the way Count Dracula spazzes into a brilliant red devil-face when provoked. The second-cutest thing is his annoyed response to being misquoted by idiot humans. show more

    While it's an energetic romp, there is more slapstick humor than wit at work here, and a good deal of borrowing from the far more clever "Monsters, Inc." show more

    There's enough here to entertain - and gross out - the kiddie crowd, and parental units, too show more

    As a vampire might say, "Be- vaaare , all who enter here above the age of 7! What lies on the screen ... is not for you !" show more

    Hotel Transylvania checks in as an anemic example of pure concept over precious little content. show more

    The problem is that Jonathan is possibly the most annoying romantic lead in any film in recent memory. His gnarly, X-Games-loving, righteous-dude shtick is so grating that my frustration with the lack of ferocity in the movie's monsters may be largely because I kept wishing one of them would act like a proper monster and tear him limb from limb. show more

    A serviceable animated movie about a soft-hearted Dracula. show more

    Some might say there isn't enough that's fresh here to recommend the movie in a big way, except that every generation of trick-or-treaters deserves its monster mash. show more

    It's juvenile from start to finish, which is fine if you're young, but not so great if your sole purpose in a theater is to accompany someone who's young. show more

    Entertaining enough for the trick-or-treat crowd, but a bit more bite wouldn't kill it. show more

    This is probably the best film I have ever seen. EVERYTHING is funny, EVERYTHING is interesting about, and ALL the characters are so funny and likeable in SO many ways! no matter what people on \"Rotten Tomatoes\" think, it is THE best animated film I\'ve ever seen.

    We all found it funny and entertaining, especially when anyone got Dracula worked up about protecting his \"little girl\"!

    What a fun movie. We rented this for our 4 year old son and we liked jxut as much if not more than he did. Love the new animation, it\'s so realistic it\'s scary.
