I had heard good things about this movie for many moon. I finally was able to stream it online for FREE!
I laughed so hard during so many scenes once John Goodman came into the picture. He and Jeff Bridges played extremely well off each other…and then throw Steve Buscemi in and those three-way conversations had me roaring. I could identify with many of the lead characters’ attitudes which made it twice as relatable to me. The denouement: my family was a bowling family…NOSTALGIA! Yet, all the hilarity, I was brought to tears with emotion, as well.
The soundtrack was phenomenal…most stuff I had never heard before. Already found my favorite – Lujon by Henry Mancini – and downloaded it.
Coincidence or Irony? The movie got better/funnier after my “green” medication arrived.
Now I understand how this has become a cult movie.
Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania…Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay fa family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not pure blood – and human are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!

I thought this sequel was funnier than the first one. The story is as old as the hills revolving around unconditional acceptance in the face of discrimination, but from a monster’s point of view, and funny. One of the things that really made me laugh was the idea that everyone thought the Invisible Man had made up his girlfriend – also invisible and from Canada.
I was able to pick out the voice talents of Megan Mullally, but the movie was packed with well-know actors: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, Fran Drescher, Molly Shannon, Nick Offerman, Dana Carvey and Mel Brooks.
