Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Review

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (Rated PG) is now in theaters!

In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they 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. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans. But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Hawaii Dad Blog Review:
In Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation,  Mavis plans a surprise cruise for the whole clan with the goal of providing a relaxing, family bonding getaway for her father, Drac.  Unbeknownst to Mavis, Dracula has been feeling lonely recently and has been longing to find love.

The cruise kicks off in the Bermuda Triangle where Drac gets his first glimpse of the human cruise ship captain, Ericka, and it's love-at-first-sight. Unfortunately for Drac, Ericka’s last name is Van Helsing, and she’s been raised by her great-grandfather to hate monsters, especially him, so she hatches a plan to destroy all the monsters on her ship.

Will Ericka succeed with her plan? Or will she instead realize that monsters are just like people and reciprocate Drac’s feelings? 

Being that this is an animated movie geared toward kids, the plot is quite predictable.  

Although my sons laughed throughout the movie, overall I felt Summer vacation fell flat in terms of the liveliness and jokes compared with the first two installments of Hotel Transylvania.  

I did, however, enjoy a few scenes (those who grew up in the 80s will probably enjoy the same ones).

Although I was expecting more from Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, the animation was great, and little ones will enjoy it!

Mahalo to the sponsor for the screening tickets.
