Hotel Transylvania 2 did not outright suck, but came close. The sad fate of a sequel is that they tend to suck. Hotel Transylvania 2 changed the target audience. It was more for first time parents and grand parents than the kids. In short, it lost the magic.
Yes, I understand they were trying to possibly help little kids understand why their parents and grand parents seem to be shoving them in completely different directions, but, it just didn’t work for me. Some of it was well done. They did maintain the story line about accepting others who are different which was nice, but, it just didn’t work.
This movie is worth a watch if you saw the first, but skip the re-runs. It is not going to get any better the second or third time around.
