Storyline

In 1895, Dracula builds a resort in Transylvania, hidden from the humans, to raise his beloved daughter Mavis in a safe environment. In the present, the place is the Hotel Transylvania, where monsters bring their families to vacation far from the frightening humans. Dracula invites his friends - Frankenstein and his wife Eunice; Wayne and Wanda, the werewolves; Griffin, the invisible man; Murray, the mummy; Bigfoot, among others - to celebrate the 118th birthday of Mavis. When the party is ready to start, the 21-year-old Jonathan is walking through the forest and stumbles upon the hotel. Dracula sees Jonathan and disguises him as a monster to hide Jonathan from the guests. But Mavis also sees Jonathan and Dracula forces him to pose as a monster. Soon Mavis believes that Jonathan is the "zing" of her life despite the advice of her father about humans. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

(at around 1h 20 mins) At the end of the movie, at Mavis's birthday party, the label on the record on the turntable reads "Oh! who said so - Sung by - Mr. Charles Penrose". This was a real pre-WWI record. See more »

Goofs

In the first chaos scene after Johnny enters the hotel (when he realizes the monsters are real) a fly is depicted with multiple eyes (like a fly would have). in all later depictions of the flies, they have human-like eyes, with whites and pupils, etc. See more »

Quotes

Jonathan: Yeah, well, I was afraid your dad was gonna suck all the blood out of my body if I didn't say that.
Dracula: I wouldn't have... No, he's right, I would have done that.
Mavis: Dad.
Dracula: I was wrong, Devil-chops.

Fun for everyone
4 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can you say thoroughly entertaining? I went by myself because the little people in my world were unavailable, and the big people are too cool for animation. I sat there cracking up with the kids behind me.

Let's face it; Adam sander has had a few bombs lately. He redeemed himself quite nicely with this one. I generally dislike movies with a hit you over the head message of peace, love, and brotherhood, but this I liked. Hotel reminds us not to judge before getting to know someone. It also showcases a single dad nicely.

I liked that the father had his flaws and was unashamedly protective of his kid...even going so far as being underhanded to keep her safe. It gives a balanced view of parents who sometimes try so hard and still manage to muddle up their lives and that of their kids'.

There is nothing terribly scary for even young viewers.
