    Hotel Transylvania 3 proves there's still plenty of bite left in the series, even if it feels just a touch long in the tooth. Perhaps the ratio of LOL jokes to eye-rollers aren't quite as favorable as in the previous two installments, but there's plenty of blood left to be drawn on, where you'll realize it may be a touch short of the standard it's set for itself, but still rises above 75% of the family movies produced currently. It entertained our family, with our son a bit of a HT snob- he's adored the first two films, really enjoyed this one (especially "Sprinkles," the newest member of the Dracula family, Denisovich's pet dog,) but watched all of one episode of the Netflix series cartoon and immediately pronounced it, "NOT MY Hotel Transylvania". What I respect most about the Hotel Transylvania series, above say, Cars, (which my son also adores,) is that it isn't tied intrinsically to merchandising. New characters don't feel pressed into service as a new toy for the Disney overlords. Characters are allowed to exist much more naturally in the story- while I'm lucky enough that my son doesn't often feel a need to want the newest Car character, (in fact, i'm more likely to hunt it down as a gift for him if he seems to enjoy the character in question,) it's refreshing to know that watching a family movie won't be tied to neverending commercials to sell the newest tied in toy releases that pull at a child's desires. HT is a wonderful series, and it may have lost a quarter step here in the 3rd story, it's still a fun film that will keep the kids and adults entertained. Even if a Hotel Transylvania 4 doesn't return to 5 star territory, if it manages to match the third film, it will remain a welcome, fun, and funny series for the entire family to enjoy!

    Hotel Transylvania 3 summer vacation. Anybody who's watched the first two Hotel Transylvania 1 and 2 no the cast yet Adam Sandler's Dracula Selena Gomez as Mavis. Adam Sandberg as Jonathan and so on and so forth. This time instead of taking place in Hotel Transylvania they take a vacation as a giant family out on what looks like a representation of the Titanic to the Bermuda Triangle then the lost city of Atlantis. The only problem is this whole thing has been staged by Abraham Van Helsing Dracula's old nemesis, and his great-great-granddaughter Erika Van Helsing who wants a fallen in love with of course Dracula. If you have the first two this is a must-have it's very quirky but it is worth having in the collection whether you're an adult or whether your kid it's got its funny parts at Scott it's so-so Parts but overall it's a very well done movie.

    not 3D, but still good

    I loved the first two so I knew I'd like this one too, but I was unable to see it in 3D at the theater. I was OK with that because I knew that I'd get it in 3D when it came out on blu-ray. Unfortunately, like so many other 3D theatrical releases, only 2D is available on blu-ray, at least at first. I'm guessing that they will sell what they can on 2D blu-ray, see what the demand is for 3D and decide then whether or not to sell a 3D version, so if you want that, you'll have to buy it again in 3D. That's why I deducted 1 star.

    Ultimately a ZING story.

    Drac and the Gang go on vacation. The idea for a vacation is brought up by Dracs daughter. She thinks the reason he seems so down is because he needs one. In reality Drac is beginning to feel the effects of single-dom. While on a vacation cruise with the gang Drac meets a human. He ZINGS (monster love)at first sight. It turns out this Human woman has a connection to his past. I thoroughly enjoy these movies except for one thing. Adam Sandlers voice over. The accent he uses is very cheesy.

    We have always liked the HT series and this one is no different, it adds a few more characters including a love interest, a solid villain from the human world and a few new characters that are fun (fish and gremlins) it starts out all action, but after that the action comes in only a few instances in the rest of the film, the ending is more than a bit over the top, but good for 80's rockers

    So the movie overall is ok, obviously bought for the kids and they enjoyed it as the HT saga continues (keeping Sandler and the boys employed). The packaging is top notch as is with most of the steel books. Best Buy seems to have the most steel book offers and as it’s my preferred packaging it keeps me going back. Prices can be though sonalways a trade off.

    Our son loves these movies. I don't mind them at all. There are some decent laughs when I watch them through his eyes. This is like "Hotel Transylvania: Summer Vacation" or something. The nice thing is that these movies all have a solid message behind them, if you're paying attention.

    Rehash of the first with a different angle

    The kids enjoyed it and so did I. It was a good movie. It just basically used a similar story as the first but with different angles to end up at the same place under similar conditions. If you liked the first two, you'll like this. Just because it uses familiar themes is OK.

    Quality of the video is fantastic. The movie itself isn’t as good as the first two, but if you’re considering buying this movie then you’ve most likely already seen it. I lersonally love being able to buy a movie that has Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download in one packaging.

    The Hotel Transylvania series just gets better. This third installment to the series is a must buy if you have the first two. Always get the multiple packs if available to ensure that you are able to watch you movie in a variety of different ways.

    An adequate third entry if not a bit too much by the numbers. The big reveal was ruined by the structure of the story. That would not be a big deal for younger viewers. The biggest laugh for me was how Mr. and Mrs. Wolfman viewed their imprisonment.

    My 8year old Granddaughter enjoyed Hotel Transylvania 3 Summer vacation. The animation was simply dazzling. The adventure was sweet but lacked any entertainment or content for adult audiences. I gave it 4 stars because I rated it as a kid would.

    The entire movie is basically about Drac (Adam Sandler) which isn't bad, but stopped it from earning 5 stars. The past few movies were based off Mavis Dracula (Selena Gomez). Worth a pickup or at least a rent. 4k version quality is great.

    I loved the first 2 movies more but this one is still good. The story line was cute and stayed true throughout the movie but I wanted it to be more about the other characters, not just Drac, as well. Still cute and worth watching.

    The animation does tend to be fluid and has a quick aspect to it but the only thing keeping it from being higher is the idea that I was expecting much more from it , however it does have it’s own merits ( I don’t want to spoil things )

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    We have watched the first two so it was only natural to get this and enjoy it with our five year old. She loves all the characters and there is enough of a backstory to keep adults attention. A few good laughs and plenty of excitement.

    We showed this movie at my daughter's 7th birthday party. It was fun for the kids, who turned it into an impromptu dance party, and there were a few laughs for the adults as well. I wouldn't watch it on my own, but it was fun for my kids.

    The second sequel to the hit Hotel Transylvania brings the gang back together again, this time on a cruise, but something sinister is brewing aboard the boat. Packed with laughs, this was a big improvement over the previous sequel.

    I really enjoyed the first movie in this franchise, the second one was a little lacking and then this one is a little bit better than the second one. Predictable but good. Kids will enjoy it more than the parents watching with them.

    My two daughters love the movie. I thought it was an original way to extend the series. The premise is cute, but the 3rd act is ridiculous and painful for me to watch at times. But then again, this movie was not purchased for me.
