This movie is definitely a must see for adults and children (5 yrs old and older)! My 6 year old grandson, husband, and I laughed throughout the movie. My 4 year old granddaughter was a little confused with some parts of the movie. She was unsure whether to laugh or cry at some of the characters in the movie. Great animation! Great plot! Still, I'd highly recommend Hotel Transylvania for a family night out!

I was looking forward to Hotel Transylvania when I read the advanced publicity (Genndy Tartakovsky directing, Robert Smigel sharing the writing credits, and an interesting cast), but I was sorely disappointed after seeing the final product.
I'm a big fan of Smigel's wickedly satirical SNL animated shorts, but there was none of that present at the Hotel Transylvania. Just a cliched plot about a teenager and her overly protective dad, interspersed with the occasional sight gag. HT is strictly for preteens; older moviegoers will find little of interest until the final credits, where there are some beautifully drawn stills that should have been used for the movie's setting.
Check out Monsters Inc. or Coraline for how to properly do a movie in this genre.

This was a fast moving, kid-themed Halloween tale. It kept the kids' attention. The characters had some big names (Adam Sandler, Kevin Smith, etc) and had some pretty funny scenes throughout. The ending was rushed and didn't seem to fit the story. To not give away the ending, the main character suddenly has a change of heart and so do all the other characters. Which is dumb and makes no sense. Other than this little detail, it was a good time and the kids enjoyed it, so money well-spent.

I went to see Hotel Transylvania with my fiance and my two younger siblings who are 7 and 6 years old. There are times when the movie gives some adult humor that the kids will not understand, but it has some cute scenes with cool-looking monsters that both kids and adults will enjoy. The cast was great for the voiceovers and overall good movie to spend the money on for the family. Two thumbs up!

it has alot of obsene references and is overall a terrible idea. it will encourage your kids to be rebels and not listen to you. it also says that different for the sake of different is fine . what?!! well its your funeral i mean if you care about your kids
