Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Rated 1.0

Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler), his daughter (Selena Gomez), son-in-law (Andy Samberg) and their monster pals take a vacation cruise—never suspecting that the ship’s captain (Kathryn Hahn) is a Van Helsing plotting to wipe them all out. This franchise, a perfect example of the Walking Undead, started out in 2012 as a third-rate excuse for an animated feature, and each sequel has been worse than what went before, with the same nonstory, the same flop-sweat-stained torrent of lame gags, the same slumming star voices (Steve Buscemi, Kevin James, David Spade, Fran Drescher, Mel Brooks, Molly Shannon, Jim Gaffigan, etc.) who failed to make the first two movies worth watching. There’s nothing to do but endure it, pray for release, and cherish the respite until Hotel Transylvania 4 comes along in 2021.
