Character error 

Vlad says that Dennis' vampire name is "Denisovich". Presumably the writer intended this to mean "little Dennis", but this makes no sense in either Hungarian or Romanian, the two main languages of Transylvania. In Russian it would mean "son of Dennis" as a patronymic: Russian has lots of diminutives for personal names, but -ovich is not one of them, and anyway these vampires are not Russian. Apparently, the writers just randomly picked something vaguely Slavic sounding.
When Dennis turns two years old, Drac checks his mouth for fangs, but Dennis has no teeth at all. Most babies develop their first teeth at 6 months old, so by two years old, Dennis should have had a mouth full of baby teeth.

Vampires are shown to not appear in photographs. This is evident in the beginning of the film, during the wedding. Drac and Mavis do not appear in any of the pictures they take. However, later on in the movie, when Mavis is packing her things in boxes, she comes across an old picture of her and Drac, in which they are visible.

When Dennis and the monsters are at the vampire summer camp, in one scene they are sitting by a fire. Frank was shown in the previous movie to be extremely afraid of fire, to the point of becoming scared when a match is lit near him. However, he is completely fine with the fire at the camp. A couple of scenes later, he has caught on fire and is again shown to be afraid of it.

In several instances throughout the film, Dracula jumps from having long, sharp nails, to short round nails, and then back to long, sharp nails.
Mavis' teeth become multi colored after drinking multiple Slurpee. They are normal color until she drinks the last one.

Factual errors 

After Dracula cracks his phone screen, his image is cracked on Mavis's phone. When a cell phone has a cracked screen, the person on the other end cannot see the cracks.
It's about a 15-16 hour flight from Transylvania to California. The time in Transylvania doesn't change when Mavis and Johnny get to California. By the time their flight arrived it should be 5-6 pm in Transylvania, not 1am as suggested.

However, later on in the movie, when Mavis is packing her things in boxes, she comes across an old picture of her and Drac, in which they are visible.but the picture she comes across is not a photo, it's a painting. you can tell by the brush marks on canvas.

Plot holes 

When any of the vampires are shown in a photo or mirror, they disappear. This effect should also count for videos. The vampires show up in security cameras, video chat and video websites.
Dennis dropped from the tower for more than 20 seconds before being caught by his grandfather. In reality, the tower should be over 2,000 meters tall, surpassing all the current tallest buildings in the world; but in the early version of the screenplay, the tower was described as merely 200 feet high.
