Review: Dracula (Adam Sandler) is over-worked and needs to get away from it all, but not from his friends and family. Maybe a family vacation would do him some good, and a little romance wouldn't hurt either. The third entry in this animated series has its funny moments with all of the memorable characters returning, but once the monster cruise hits the Bermuda Triangle and the romantic subplot is introduced the movie doesn't quite surprise and entertain like the previous pair of 'Hotel Transylvania' features. I really enjoyed the first two, but this franchise might be getting a bit long in the tooth, yes pun intended.

Stars (out of 4):

Fun Fact: The scene where Johnny sees a gremlin on the wing of the airplane is a tribute to to classic The Twilight Zone (1959) episode, "Nightmare At 20,000 Feet".
