Adam Sandler and company return to Transylvania for another mildly amusing and corny gags filled sequel.
The original Transylvania was a bright and entertaining animated film for the little ones to enjoy during the Halloween season. Now, Sandler and his crew returned to the same hotel to try and whip up another dose of Halloween fun. Some say, that the sequel is better than the original, but I say otherwise. I felt like the original was more charming and less relentless of the constant gags. At times, Transylvania 2 was amusing and in others, it was slightly irritating.
The non-stop gags wears on you after a while, but this colorful sequel is family-friendly and harmless. The voices of Sandler Kevin James, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Steve Buscemi, David Spade and Mel Brooks all provided a nice candy filled treat to the film. Sadly, Hotel Transylvania 2 is not better than the original’s spooky family filled fun. Nevertheless, it still will keep the little ones entertained for the rather short 89 minutes during this Halloween.
Hotel Transylvania 2 is rated PG (Parental Guidance). For some scary images, action and rude humor.
