What it's about:

Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s 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’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.

 
What the critics thought:

"Hotel Transylvania may offer a perfectly fine Halloween-themed getaway for young kids, but there aren't many amenities for Mom and Dad."
-  Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post


"The movie loses its originality as it rolls toward its predictable conclusion, but it's still lovely to look at."
- Neil Genzlinger, New York Times


"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."
- Claudia Puig, USA Today


Where monsters go to get away from it all.
