DETAILED STORYLINE
.
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.

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 ...as 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...

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 103 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: Most of the kids loved "Summer Vacation," with most of the rest rating it "above average."
TEENS: Two males loved it, one enjoyed it very much and one rated it just "average." Two of the ladies loved it and the third one enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: All the males loved "Summer Vacation." About 60% of the ladies loved it with another 30% rating it "above average," which indicates a movie that they enjoyed very much. Only 10% rated it as low as "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.
