Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count’s teen-aged daughter. (IMDb)
It’s no secret I’m a sucker for kids movies. This one though, was just meh. I mean, it was cute, and I’m sure actual children loved it. But what’s elevating family movies nowadays is watchability for adults. (Think Despicable Me, Frozen, How To Train Your Dragon, etc.) The humor wasn’t quite smart enough for one. Although, the voice cast was impressive and there were some funny moments. Also, when Dracula reveals what happened to his wife, that was a nice moment. But in the end, while this was cute, it wasn’t up to the caliber of other family movies out there today.
