Adam, where was the effort?
I took my daughter and a friend to see Hotel Transylvania in 3d. I gave it a so-so because it is very family friendly and the girls loved it. So all in all I got my money's worth. However, if you are an Adam Sandler fan (even if your not) and are expecting some kind of sardonic wit for the adults, you will be sorely disappointed. This was not the gut busting humor fest of Finding Nemo or Despicable Me. Maybe my expectations were too high, but knowing that Adam has done better(such as Mr. Deeds and Click), I really don't think so. The inflection of his character's voice did not change through the whole movie to reflect any emotions. The jokes could have been waaaay better, knowing the caliber of comedian he is, and still family friendly.
The acting of the other characters, and the directing carried the rest of movie. The concept for the story was a good one but maybe a bit too overdone.
Take the family to see it, just don't expect too much.
