Not as good as 1 and 2 but kids enjoyed it
I liked the message behind the movie. To me it was a few things. Take time for yourself and family. It's never too late to find love and don't be so judgy everyone is different.
Aside from a witty montage near the start of the movie and sparks of his cheeky, goodhearted subversiveness later on, most of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is bludgeoningly broad and obvious.
The’re not a lot of momentum to Hotel Transylvania 3; this is a children’s film after all. But the character and location designs are inventive and appealing, and there are several memorable set pieces, including a wordless scuba diving sequence that draws heavy inspiration from classic Warner Bros. cartoons.
The movie flirts with the usual mixed-signals of romantic comedy, but is on much more solid ground with sight gags (as when Drac's jello-like blob friend happily absorbs the slice-and-smash violence Ericka aims at the vampire) and character work that depends less on celebrity voice talent than on body-language animation.
Dracula (Adam Sandler) spends most of his time playing host to the monsters that want to vacation at his hotel. Which is why this summer, his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) is determined to give her dad a much-needed holiday – on board a monster cruise ship. Drac’s Pack has a grand time relaxing and working on their moon tans (Drac stays below decks when the sun is out, natch), but what Drac is really looking for is a little romance. Will this cruise prove to be a monstrous Love Boat, or will Drac’s attraction to the mysterious captain Ericka (Kathryn Hahn) end in disaster?
Directed once again by Genndy Tartakovsky, who also co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the returning voice talents of Andy Samberg, Kevin James, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Keegan-Michael Key, Molly Shannon, Fran Drescher, and Mel Brooks, along with newcomers to the Hotel Transylvania franchise like Jim Gaffigan, Chrissy Teigen and Joe Jonas.
