We are a family constantly on the go so when we finally get some down time I just want to snuggle and relax. A lot of times that means movie night! Over the summer we saw the trailer for Hotel Transylvania 3 and knew we wanted to see it. The movie is now available on DVD & Blu-Ray for home viewing pleasure and the timing was perfect. Last weekend was my daughter’s and my birthday weekend and I just wanted to stay in to celebrate.
We ran out of time on Friday for movie night so we had movie morning on Sunday instead! With Halloween right around the corner, Hotel Transylvania 3 is perfect for gearing up for the holiday. We loved all the monster characters and their quirky personalities. Plus, it was fun for me, knowing the voice talent behind them including:
Adam Sandler (Grown-Ups), Andy Samberg (TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), David Spade (TV’s “Rules of Engagement”), Steve Buscemi (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”), Keegan Michael Key (TV’s “Key and Peele”), Molly Shannon (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”), Fran Drescher (TV’s “The Nanny”), Kathryn Hahn (Bad Moms), Jim Gaffigan (Super Troopers 2) and Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein).
Here’s a short synopsis of the movie:
“Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury, haunted monster cruise ship. Of course, the rest of the Drac Pack has to tag along, and that’s when things get a little…batty. The monsters are having a great time, indulging in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to colossus-sized buffets and exotic excursions, but then the unexpected happens when Drac falls for the ship’s mysterious (and dangerous) human captain Ericka.”
It’s a love story with a lot of twists and turns and a villain of course! My girls really enjoyed the movie. My 11 year old son wasn’t quite as interested but overall it was a fun movie for the whole family. It comes with over an hour of amazing bonus material too! Check it out:
