I thought this movie was awesome because it had lots of funny parts and had action too. I thought this movie was great and funny. And it was even cooler because it was done in 3D. This movie is all about a guy named Dracula who had a child named Mavis and Dracula had to build a hotel where all monsters could be safe and so his daughter could be safe. The movie was awesome in 3D. It really popped out but I would like it if they put more 3D because it would be a lot better than it already is. One of my favorite parts in the 3D was at the beginning of the movie when Dracula was singing to his daughter and looks so cool when he's hissing that I wanted to reach out and touch it. The main characters in the movie are Dracula, played by Adam Sandler, Mavis played by Selena Gomez, Jonathan, Frankenstein, and Murray the mummy. Adam Sandler is a really funny actor and I thought he did a great job at Dracula. My favorite character in the movie though is Jonathan because he is really funny. He has to dress up as a monster so everyone else in the hotel won't know he is human and so he won't get cooked. He also is a nice guy and does lots of risky stuff and I like that. My favorite part is when Dracula is setting up the tables for his daughter's birthday and makes them float to the spot so Jonathan comes and plays with the tables. He makes them fly and Dracula chases him with another table and they zoom all around the room. Dracula is using his powers to try to make Jonathan stop but Jonathan makes it every time through all the obstacles and they both have lots of fun. It's a fun scene. I would recommend this movie for ages 3 and up because at the beginning the dad is doing a song and does something that might scare really young kids. But overall this is a great film for almost all ages and I would highly recommend it. Go out and see this movie in theaters on September 28. Anthony Aranda, age 10, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
