Hotel Transylvania 2 is a sequel to the hit comedic animation co-written by Adam Sandler. It is about hotel manager Dracula a single-single dad vampire and his daughter Mavis who is about to broke a tradition to have a romance with a human.
The movie is marginally better than the original with very colorfully animated gags which is typical of Adam Sandler’s type of comedy. As the movie is targeted for kids, it has no defined plot or the plot is shifting from one to the next. The gags may be low hanging but at least it is fast paced.
Like most Adam Sandler movies, the jokes are stale and not original and annoying. The entire movie is like a series of TV sitcom stitched together. This is not an animated masterpiece which will not be sitting well with critics and definitely not going to win awards. Teenagers may like the low hanging comedies but not adults.
It stars Selena Gomez as Mavis and Adam Sandler as Dracula with a smorgasbord of comedians as supporting cast: Mel Brooks as Vlad, David Spade as Griffin, Megan Mullally as Linda, Molly Shannon as Wanda, Kevin James as Frankenstein, and Steve Buscemi as Wayne and Fran Drescher as Eunice. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.
