Consensus: Hotel Transylvania 2 is marginally better than the original, which may or may not be enough of a recommendation to watch 89 minutes of corny, colorfully animated gags from Adam Sandler and company.

"Hotel Transylvania 2" is an unfortunate throwback to about 20 years ago, when animated movies were more widely accepted as cinematic babysitters.

Yes, every joke in the film is low-hanging fruit, but not a single one is left unpicked.

A lazy and derivative sequel to the modestly successful 2012 children's animation.

Hotel Transylvania 2 is the greatest movie Adam Sandler and Kevin James have ever made together. I believe this is called "damning with faint praise."

The onslaught [of gags] isn't painful, but neither does it do much to distract from the ho-hum story.

Antagony & Ecstasy

All of these exertions are just enough to graze the 90 minute mark, after which the film gratefully whumps to a close taking its paint-by-numbers character arcs and hopelessly generic jokes with it.

So much attention has been paid to crafting a relentless string of in-jokes meant for ancient horror fans that the storyline limps from tired blood.

This subpar sequel barely comes close to being as amusing as any run-of-the-mill "Munsters" TV episode.

There are few things as sad as an unkept promise, Hotel Transylania 2 does that for movies. [Full review in Spanish]
