Hotel Transylvania 2 starts a couple years or more after the first movie. Johnny and Mavis (Count Dracula’s daughter) are married and have their first child, Dennis. Drac (as they refer to him in the movie) has changed his mind about humans and has opened up the hotel to allow humans as well as monsters to stay there and Johnny, his son in law, works at the hotel as well.

Drac is worried that his grandson, who is half human, will not be a Vampire like him and is constantly checking to see if he gets his fangs in. He has until his 5th birthday for them to grow in, after that they will know if he will be a Vampire or human. Johnny and Mavis are considering moving to California if Dennis doesn’t get his fangs. Johnny’s parents live in California and Mavis wants to move there. hoteltrans2

However, Johnny is enjoying his job at the hotel. This makes Drac sad and determined to help his grandson become a monster so they won’t move away.

While Dennis stays with his grandpa and his parents go to check out California, Drac gets his monster friends help to make Dennis a Vampire. They go on an adventure trying to teach Dennis about being a Monster. This proves to be harder then expected.

Hotel Transylvania 2 is not your typical sequel where it is only half as good as the first movie. They are both equally entertaining. Drac is a very funny character and I love his interactions with his Grandson. I also find it funny when Johnny introduces the cell phone to Drac and he can’t even figure out how to send a text. However, I didn’t understand why they threw a dance party for Dennis 5th birthday, it seemed more of an appropriate party for a teenager instead. Even though the animated movie is about monsters there is nothing scary about it at all, it is just fun for the whole family.

Hotel Transylvania 2 is currently playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. Showtimes can be found on their website. Platinum Theaters Dinuba 6 now proudly presents digital quality films in 2-D and 3-D with 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound to maximize your movie experience.

My nephews and nieces loved the first one. I’ll definitely look forward to watching this one with them again.
