Storyline Heading
Our favorite monster family embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else's vacation at the hotel.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Comedy - Like the first two films, this is an animated comedy with some mild horror elements aimed at kids and the entire family. While most parents will find this to be safe viewing for children, the monster and horror elements may be somewhat dark for the very young, and very mildly crude gags may be of momentary concern to parents. Fans of Adam Sandler and the returning voice cast will enjoy.

Mel Brooks (Voice of Vlad)
Adam Sandler (Voice of Dracula)
Selena Gomez (Voice of Mavis)
Director: Genndy Tartakovsky HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA
Production Notes Heading
About The Production
Content Heading
VIOLENCE: Comic hits and falls.
ACTION: Chases, crashes, destruction.
COMEDY: Banter, sight gags, physical humor, mildly crude body function gags.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...the thin plot feels less engaging than the previous films and the jokes less inspired. Tartakovsky's character design keeps things visually interesting for a while, but most people over the age of 12 will check out from the plot midway and start hoping for a cinematic vacation of their own.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average confidently silly as it is wholly predictable — not that your average little kid is going to mind one bit grooving to "Don't Worry Be Happy." More than its predecessors, "Summer Vacation" might as well be "My First Horror Flick," with its boundless array of crazy beasts aimed at a younger set, yet still delightful to oldsters.

Rex Reed Full Review
Above Average ... delivers reliably on the series' humble promise of sugared-up monster slapstick. The film is pleasingly mild and distracting.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average The change of venue allows for a fresh batch of visual gags, more elaborate set pieces, and a frenzied animation style that's more akin to a Looney Tunes short in its sheer zaniness. Hotel Transylvania 3, however, replicates far too many of its predecessors' narrative beats...

Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury Monster Cruise Ship so he can take a vacation from providing everyone else's vacation at the hotel. The rest of Drac's Pack cannot resist going along. But once they leave port, romance arises when Dracula meets the mysterious ship Captain, Ericka. Now it's Mavis' turn to play the overprotective parent, keeping her dad and Ericka apart. Little do they know that his "too good to be true" love interest is actually a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, ancient nemesis to Dracula and all other monsters.
