Let's Go To The Movies - Hotel Transylvania 2

This was supposed to be a post about The Peanuts Movie, but it was sold out when Madeleine and I got to the box office. So, Hotel Transylvania 2 it was instead.

Dracula (Adam Sandler) is a grandpa! His daughter, Mavis (Selena Gomez), and her human husband, Jonathan (Adam Samberg), have had a little boy, named Dennis, who seems to be a lot more human than vampire. He has until his fifth birthday, though, for his fangs to come in before all hope of him becoming a vampire is lost. Mavis and Jonathan love him no matter what, but are worried about raising their human son around nothing but monsters. When Mavis and Jonathan decide it might be best for them to leave the hotel to raise Dennis among humans; Drac and his monster friends take Dennis on one last monster of an adventure in an attempt to bring out his fangs and keep the family from leaving the Hotel Transylvania.

I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel Transylvania 2. I liked the animation style, the actors voicing the characters, and it had a great message about accepting those that are different than us and letting people just be whoever they're going to be. It was cute, funny, and had enough adult humor to keep it fun for parents too.

Full disclosure though, I did actually doze off for a few minutes, but I'm thinking that was more the new lounge style recliner chairs our theater just installed rather than the film itself. I was almost completely horizontal in a big comfy chair watching a cartoon. You try staying awake for that!

Seriously, it was a pretty cute movie though.
