Hotel Transylvania 2

I finally had the chance to see Hotel Transylvania 2 when it came out on Blu-ray  recently. It's  so adorable! I just loved it, maybe even more than the first one. Caution: Spoilers!

Hotel Transylvania 2 picks up right where the first film left off. Johnny and Mavis get married, and a year later, they're expecting a baby. Their little boy, Dennis (or Denisovitch as Papa Drac calls him), is the spitting image of his dad, from his curly red hair to his lack of vampire fangs. Fearing that Mavis may leave him all alone if her son is only human, Dracula decides to take matters into his own hands and prove that Dennis is a monster after all.

While Mavis and Johnny check out  Johnny's hometown in California (Mavis absolutely adores Slurpees!), Dracula, Murray, Wayne, Griffin, Frank, and Blobby set out to help "late fanger" Dennis become a real vampire. Of course, hilarity ensues as each group tries to find their place in the world.

In the end, this movie was about loving someone for who they are and not what you want them to be. Also, we all have a place where we belong, although it can be hard to see it. Bean and I loved this movie and will probably watch it often. While I loved the movie, if your kids are scared of monsters, you may want to preview  Hotel Transylvania 2 before watching it together. Some of the monsters and situations may be a little frightening for small children.
