The animation is not trying to impress, the story is not trying to be funny and didn’t even make any attempts to thrill.
I remember loving Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) this is not any where close to that. Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) was different and inviting, way better than the first Hotel Transylvania (2012). Mavis and Johnny were now married with a kid named Dennis. There the fun was in seeing how Dracula was dealing with having a grandchild and how the child was dealing with a girl in his path.

Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015), delivered something that was missing in this movie, suspense. This movie is very predictable and not predictability wrapped up in a thrill of cinematic display in animation. No, the predictability is wrapped up in a very annoying animation, especially when they danced the “macarena.” The not so Disney or Pixar type of animation was not so apparent in the previous Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) because of the nice plot, but was now clear here as the plot is boring.

Before we start on the plot here is a keyword you need to be familiar with, before watching this movie, the word is “ZING.” In the monster world, when you zing with someone it is love at first sight. This whole movie is about Dracula having a zing with a human lady.
It starts in the 1800s where we see various attempts by Abraham Van Helsing to kill Dracula and his monster friends. He primary focus became Dracula, because he always gets one over Abraham.

Now in the present, with Dracula running his hotel and trying to make life better for everyone. Mavis noticed that she too like him have been busy keeping the business moving and not having time with the family.
She decided that the hotel will be closed, and they will have a family vacation. She planned a boat cruise, for her, Johnny, Denis, Dracula and Vlad (Dracula’s father). A lot of the old crew tagged along so it was like taking all the hotel guest and moving them from a stationary location on land, to them being in motion on a boat.

There Dracula zinged with Erica, the ship captain. Erica for some reasons has a dark side and even though she didn’t try or make any attempt to make Dracula fall for her, he was head over heals in love with her at first sight.
Now Dracula has to find a way to keep his feelings in check because he doesn’t want anyone to come between him and Mavis. Mavis on the other hand seems to be suspicious of Erica but can’t put her finger to why. Everyone else is having a fun time on the ship.

There is no point seeing this movie, I have seen it to save you the pain of going to see it.
