Hotel Transylvania (2012) starring Adam Sandler, Selina Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kevin James

Buy Hotel Transylvania from Amazon.comHotel Transylvania is aimed at a juvenile audience, with the fart jokes and low humor that we’ve come to expect from Adam Sandler — and that’s a real pity. It’s actually a much better film than that.

Young Mavis (Selena Gomez) being sung to by her father Dracula (Adam Sandler)At its heart, it’s a story of an overprotective father, who is afraid for his daughter — and more afraid of losing her to the man that she comes to love. In short, Count Dracula has created a refuge for the monsters of the world — the titular Hotel Transylvania — where he’s invited his friends to celebrate his daughter Mavis’ 118th birthday. Mavis is played well by Selena Gomez, by the way. Proving that the best-laid plans often go astray, however, a handsome young human man named Jonathon (Andy Samberg) wanders into the hotel …

Jonathan (Andy Samberg): Uh, can I just ask? What exactly is this place?
Dracula (Adam Sandler): What is this place? It’s a place I built, for all those monsters out there lurking in the shadows. Hiding from the persecution of human kind. A for them and their families to come to and be themselves. A void of torches, pitchforks, angry mobs. A place of peace, relaxation, and tranquility.
Jonathan (Andy Samberg): Cool, so it’s like a hotel for monsters?
Dracula (Adam Sandler): [irritated] Yes, exactly. A hotel for monsters, way to sum it up.

Hotel Transylvania -- where overprotective father Dracula (Adam Sandler) is helpless to stop the romance between the human Jonathon (Andy Samberg) and his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez)… and despite his distrust of human beings, he protects him from his fellow monsters, by disguising him as a relative of Frankenstein’s monster (Kevin James, one of my favorite characters from the film). Despite his best efforts, Jonathon begins to ingratiate himself with the other guests at the hotel, and becomes popular with them … and with Mavis.
