Story: Dracula's (Sandler) concern these days is that his mixed blood grandson Dennis (Blinkoff) is more human than monster. His fears aren't unfounded, as Dennis is after all the half-human and half-vampire son of Mavis (Gomez) and Jonathan (Samberg). Mavis agrees to let Dracula 'babysit' Dennis for a road trip, so to speak, along with Frank (James), Murray (Key), Wayne (Buscemi) and Griffin (Spade). Dracula and gang put Dennis through a 'boot camp' designed to make a monster out of him. When Drac's curmudgeonly dad Vlad (Brooks) enters the scene, everything changes.

Movie Review: Backed by a delightful cast and animation effects that are thankfully not over-the-top and too gaudy, Hotel Transylvania 2 is subtly intelligent and is a film that even the adults among the audience will not get fidgety sitting through - thanks to some scary images, exciting action and rude humor - while the kids have a ball.

The sequel to the 2012 flick ironically has Adam Sandler putting in his best performance - even though it's his voiceover here - in terms of emotiveness and genuine humor. There's no half-heartedness, dialing-it-in sense of performance that he has become known to dish out these days. Take that and combine it with Russian-born American animator, director and producer Genndy Tartakovsky (Star Wars: Clone Wars, Hotel Transylvania and Dexter's Laboratory to his credit) and what you have is some quality animated product.

There are plenty of sight gags and as is de rigueur of good animated flicks these days, there are also many modern pop culture references that most audiences would surely get. Particularly delightful is Blobby (Solomon), whose structure is more jelly-like than monster and all parts adorable.

While HT 2 is all about feelgood emotions, there are some interesting edges to it. For example, Vlad's (Brooks) entry later on in the film provides for a hike in cinematic momentum where otherwise the film may have sagged, despite its fairly concise runtime. Sequels - whether animated or not - are a tricky business. But thankfully, this one does not disappoint. Your cuteness-overload animated flick of the season is here.
