I don’t know why I was so insistent on seeing this. Okay, I know why. I love anything involving vampires, and this found family of monsters are so cute. The billboards and trailer and posters are total cute overload.
After two films in the monster hotel (I don’t know if I ever even saw the second one) Dracula, Mavis, Frank, Blobby, Murray Mummy and the whole rest of the gang (I don’t know that I can even name them) head out for a monster cruise. Unbeknownst to them, the woman running the cruise is the descendant of Van Helseing, and is hellbent on destroying all monsters. To make matters worse, Dracula zings on her (monster-speak for love at first bite, er, sight)
As far as the cute, it delivered. There were moments here and there that I loved, mostly sprinkled in between the jokes for the kids. It didn’t have much else to offer besides that. At some point, the film remembered it had a story it was trying to tell, and it just wasn’t as interesting as the individual moments. Kids in the audience seemed to like it. Adults seemed to endure it.
