Consensus: Hotel Transylvania's buoyant, giddy tone may please children, but it might be a little too loud and thinly-scripted for older audiences.

No one does saccharine like Adam Sandler. The man can be sharp, angry and funny - but when he lays on the sweetness, it's like drowning in an avalanche of Tate & Lyle.

Not since Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein have the great Universal monsters been subjected to such dismal treatment.

The movie is hardly top-notch stuff.

It's all strictly one-note stuff. But it's a funny note, and the film has a grand old time giving us the same type of gag over and over again.

Even the animation is ugly.

J. Olson

Classic Saturday morning cartoon material, very silly and very much aimed at 5 year-olds.

The 3-D adds a vertiginous thrill to a chase on flying tables and a touch of claustrophobia to a maze of underground corridors.

Alonso Duralde

Hotel Transylvania may lack the emotional oomph of Pixar's best efforts, but it makes up for it with rapid-fire gags and an unflagging pace that makes this a rare all-ages treat.

This 91-minute mash-up of Halloween creatures and non-stop silliness hits the ground running and virtually never slows down.

The first half was lame, the last half seemed to pick up. But, it still wasn't as good as I had expected it to be. Ok, just not great...

1 1/2 stars go to the zombies. They were my favourite thing about this film. The remaining half a star goes to everything else. I would throw in a plus for the… More
