My all-time favorite character happens to be Count Dracula and I instantly become a huge fan Hotel Transylvania 1. Although, I’m very pleased with the story line of part two, I was expecting something that was very lighthearted, not too serious, and just funny because after all Adam Sandler is the main character. However, the movie wittily covers family topics that I could relate to in my own home.
Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2 is an adorable movie that the whole family will enjoy this Halloween season. I think your kids will love it and there are some topics parents can learn from.
Here are 3 Lesson Parents can Learn From Seeing Hotel Transylvania 2
Adapting to Change:
They say out with the old and in with the new, that is just what Dracula does by embracing humans and losing his strict monster-only hotel policy. As he opens the doors to humans, Drac and his pals Frankenstein (Kevin James), Griffin the Invisible Man (David Spade), Wayne the Werewolf (Steve Buscemi), and Murray the Mummy (Keegan-Michael Key) all have to adapt to living among humans and looking after a new born baby. I found it very entertaining watching the group of monsters go through this transition. Even more, it reminded me of my own unwillingness to conform things in my own life.
In Hotel Transylvania 2 Dracula’s daughter Mavis’ (Selena Gomez) relationship with her human boyfriend, Johnny (Andy Samberg) evolves and they decide to take it to the next level. But Drac, mentally refuses to accept that his little girl is all grown up, and has a family of her own. This leads him to disagree with Mavis’ decision to move away so her son Dennis could be in a safer environment. Of course Drac (Adam Sandler) being the controlling dad that he tries to force the situation to go his way. As parents, it’s natural to feel like we know what’s best for our child, no matter if they are two or twenty-two. Therefore, most parents will be able to relate to Dracula’s situation, learn what not to do, and find his failed attempts to control his family’s situation hilarious.
Accepting Peoples Differences:
What I love most about this film is that it has a great message about accepting people as they are. Drac’s dad, Vlad (Mel Brooks), is old-school being raised distrusting humans, and due to his complicated relationship with his son, he hasn’t seen him in years. It was not until Mavis secretly invites Vlad to her son’s birthday party that they were reunited. Unfortunately, when Vlad finds out that humans and vampires are living together at the hotel, the fate of Hotel Transylvania is up for grabs. Although Vlad’s character is not favored, viewers will find Vlad’s reaction refreshing. I honestly feel everyone can ultimately learn from it.
Overall Hotel Transylvania Two is a fantastic movie that the whole family can enjoy. What’s more is that you can easily transition into part two without seeing part one. However, if you are like me and you like to see part one before taking the kids to see part two, you can watch it now via Amazon.

Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania… Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!
