Movie review: "Hotel Transylvania"

We were a bit "late" in watching this movie since every time we tried it was sold out... and I can totally see why...this is such a GREAT and ingenious movie...so much fun and colorful...
The movie revolves around Count Dracula and his daughter Mavis, who happens to be turning 118... (LOL)...
Back in the 1800's when Mavis was just a baby, Dracula had a hotel built, with the idea that all monsters could visit without being persecuted by humans (somewhere in the story, they state the fact that Dracula's wife was killed by a human, hence his fear of them)...
With Mavis' 118th birthday around the corner, she asks her dad if she could go out in the "real world" and count Dracula does everything possible to keep protecting her from the "evil" humans... that is until one of them (Johnny) manages to enter the hotel and falls in love with Mavis...
..the monsters then realize that humans are not all that "evil" and they are actually fun...
I think the story is so well written and the whole "monster thing" is handled so well for the kids.. The movie isn't scary at all and the kids can totally relate to the story...
The voice overs are hilarious and Adam Sandler does an excellent job at personifying Count Dracula...
This is such a wholesome and funny movie... ideal for the whole family!  We really enjoyed it...
I give this one 5 out of 5 stars.. A MUST SEE!
