What is there to do? Go to Hotel Transylvania 2! (Review)

The weather is turning cooler.  The leaves are starting to change color.  Halloween decorations line the aisles of every store I walk into.   Fall is here, and that is one of our favorite seasons as a family. We love to go apple picking, hiking through the crunchy leaves in the woods, and running through the corn maze.  We decorate our entire  house for Halloween and look forward to picking out a new costume or revamping a previous one.   We have several other Halloween traditions as well.  Each year we listen to the audio version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in the dark with a fire roaring in the fireplace. We also watch Hotel Transylvania.  It has been a favorite since we first saw it while on vacation several years ago.

When I was asked to attend an advanced screening of Hotel Transylvania 2 with my family,  I jumped at the the chance.   We couldn't wait to see what Johnny and Mavis were up to.  Without giving too much away, I can say that they are still together and now have a little one to keep up with. Hotel Transylvania 2 tells the story of Johnny, Mavis, and their little boy, Dennis.  Like any new parents, they have some struggles trying to figure out what is best for their little boy.  Also like many parents, they have the thoughts, actions, and opinions of others to contend with.  What results, is a great family movie!  We all laughed at the silly antics that Drac and his pack got involved with.  As parents, we could relate to the difficult decisions that Johnny and Mavis had to make.  I left the theater with a smile on my face, happy that we had found another great family movie to enjoy together.
