    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.

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

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Hotel Transylvania doesn't raise the bar for animation or comedy but it's fun, and nice for once to have a different reason to say "boo" after an Adam Sandler flick.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Hotel Transylvania is very different from its contemporaries. You just wish that, with so much emphasis on chaos, they could have spent a little more time on character.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The pleasantly disposable animated flick Hotel Transylvania, which gathers all the monsters in the world under one roof, is better than it should be, if not quite as good as it could be.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Although it doesn't worry itself with dialectic complexities, Hotel Transylvania succeeds on the level of entertainment.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    It's the parental mush about trusting one's kid to make her own discoveries and blah blah blah (spoken in a Sandlerized version of a Dracula voice) that drains the movie of blood. What's left are platitudes, and Sandler singing a novelty song in a Transylvanian-accented falsetto.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    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.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    A serviceable animated movie about a soft-hearted Dracula.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    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."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    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.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Paul Bradshaw

    Despite the all-star talent, an overload of sight gags and an always-amiable vibe, Genndy Tartakovsky's monster house is a bit too loony for its own good.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    For the first half of the film, amusing monster humor keeps things interesting; some monsters, it turns out, are better at party games than others.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    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 !"

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Hotel Transylvania is occasionally the kind of fast-moving, gag-a-second film that relies on quantity of humor rather than quality.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

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

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Has a big-name cast, a cute premise and... and... hang on, thinking here. Nope. That's about it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Vadim Rizov

    No surprises or major laughs here, but as far as Sandler family fare goes, it's inoffensive enough.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Abhimanyu Das

    Yet another instance of a decent, potentially thorny premise bogged down in a mess of treacly sentiment and tedious moralizing.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Comedy gothic isn't exactly novel, and frankly there is a sense here of a movie coasting along on Halloween hype-marketing, without providing as many laughs and ideas as it really could have done.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    An animation that never drags itself out of mediocrity despite the best efforts of gifted animator Tartakovsky.

    Empire Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

    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.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    There are some crowd-pleasers - but Hotel Transylvania never becomes the great monster mash that seemed in the offing.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Hotel Transylvania isn't a complete stinker. Sandler, speaking in a pitch close to his Opera Man routine from his days on Saturday Night Live, is less obnoxious than usual. The visuals are consistently enticing - the castle/hotel is artfully rendered...And there are some bright and funny lines.

    Time Full Review
  • David Fear

    So why does this animated kids' film fail to come together? Bursts of manic pacing steamroll over most of the wit, a little of Sandler's thick-accent shtick goes a looong way, and by the time the requisite life lessons about letting your offspring leave the nest get rolled out, the undead-on-arrival jokes are outnumbered by anemic sitcom gags.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    A stale overprotective-dad story set within a location that could easily house a more inspired mix of characters and events.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    After six years in development, this comedy starring and produced by Adam Sandler feels as slapped together one of the comedian's live-action buddy movies.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    The only reliable smiles come courtesy of Steve Buscemi, a frequent presence in Sandler movies, here voicing an exasperated, over-extended werewolf dad.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Dominated by Adam Sandler's D-minus Bela Lugosi impression, the 3-D animated feature Hotel Transylvania illustrates the difference between engaging a young movie audience and agitating it, with snark and noise and everything but the funny.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It features predictable humor and an underdeveloped story.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    As for Hotel Transylvania,, no need to put a stake in it, it's deadly dull already.
