A funny Adam sandler movie?
Never thought he had it in him after the film that shall not be named.

The animation is excellent, the voice actors do wonderful jobs especially Sandler and gomez. You donít hear Adam sandler as dracula, you hear Dracula, just played by Adam Sandler! Yes, at points itís easy to tell, but for the most part, he pulled it off.

Even his buddies manage to be funny, and they all l do good jobs. Itís very cartoon-y and it really feels like a classic 2d film, even if it is CG. Itís filed with one liners, visuals gags, and all kinds of jokes. Like the best comedies, it warrants a few viewings.

Itís zany, quirky and the way it plays with the monsters is very cool. Itís a very good Hall ween film, and while most will likely only watch it in October, it still is a decent film on itís own.]

The story doesnít exactly offer a ton of substance, even in itís clichť moments, it still inspires some smiles a few nice touches. But the film is a comedy, and Genndy pulls it off very well with his usual comedic style.

Sure, some jokes donít work, and I hate that ending, but that doesnít hurt this otherwise pleasant film. Itís not exactly made for adult, but they can watch it with their kids without wanting to shoot themselves.

It wonít make any best animated films lists any time soon, but I still rather enjoyed it. A sequel has been greenlit. Hereís hoping itís just as good

You'll Scream With Laughter
I am not really a fan of Adam Sandler — the only films of his I find tolerable are 50 First Dates, Click and Reign Over Me. And that kept me away from this movie when it hit theaters, because I've seen Eight Crazy Nights and that was his attempt at a family comedy. Eeew.

But then I heard, well after, that this film was directed by the great Genndy Tartakovsky, and that raised my determination level right past the dislike for the star.

I'm thrilled to report I was wrong.

What begins as a wacky screwball comedy that you know is going to take some wrong turns, turns out to have a surprising heart and a beautiful couple of Aesops about trust, and not letting one experience define everything you think.

The Dance Party Ending is a bit too Dream Works, but forgiveable. The art and the clear influences of Looney Tunes and Mad Monster Party make it worth putting up with the few places where the film falters.

Almost incredible
This movie was almost perfect for me. It was a charming family friendly comedy movie packed with laughs from top to...well...almost bottom. My recommendation is to leave 10 minutes before the very end. The ending is cringeworthy. But the rest of the movie was great.

Awesome!
I loved every minute of Hotel T, it was funny, touching and although it didn't have a big bad I still give it an A+. I sure hope it gets a sequel.
