A serviceable animated movie about a soft-hearted Dracula.

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...

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

Hotel Transylvania Rocks in 3D!!
