Hotel Transylvania 2

Rated 1.0

Dracula (voice of Adam Sandler), his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) and son-in-law Jonathan (Andy Samberg) revel in the birth of Dennis, their hybrid offspring—but is the little tyke more human or vampire? Dear God in heaven, please tell us that nobody really cares. Like its 2012 predecessor, this empty-calories junk-food movie is harmless enough, but it's even more plotless, laughless and worthless, nothing more than a make-work project for Sandler's family (daughters Sadie and Sunny, nephew Jared; co-writer Robert Smigel has a couple of kids in there too) and friends (Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, etc.) and the members of Animation Guild Local 839. The first movie bid fair to rival Madagascar, Ice Age and Rio as the worst animation franchise ever, and this one delivers on that threat. J.L.
