Hotel Transylvania 2 brings a second helping of the animated film where humans and monsters live together in Hotel Transylvania. Using a screenplay co-written by Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler, the film was directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. Hotel Transylvania 2 opened in theaters in 3D on September 25, 2015.
In Hotel Transylvania 2, several years have passed since the first film though things haven't changed that much at the hotel where humans and monsters prosper together. In the hotel operated by Count Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler), daughter Mavis (voiced by Selena Gomez) and son in law Johnny (voiced by Andy Samberg) have birthed a half-human, half-vampire son, Dennis (voiced by Asher Blinkoff). This has made Dracula and his many best friends (including voices by Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade and Keegan-Michael Key) very happy.
So when Mavis and Johnny head to California to visit Johnny parents (voices by Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally) and contemplate a move away from Hotel Transylvania, Dracula offers to babysit with the hidden agenda to prove that Dennis is more vampire than human, which would mean Mavis and Johnny would need to stay at Hotel Transylvania. So Dracula calls in his father, Vlad (voiced by Mel Brooks), but when Vlad arrives at the hotel, Vlad is surprised to see the state of the hotel, creating more questions for Dracula than answers.Hotel Transylvania 2 opens in theaters already showing other great late summer 2015 films including Everest, Black Mass, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and The Visit.

Murray: Why are we doing this?Count Dracula uses a technique used on him when he was young to teach his grandson Dennis to fly like a vampire. As Dennis falls from an extremely tall tower, Dracula finally admits that Dennis might not be flying anytime soon.
Count Dracula: We've got some work to do.
Frank: We shouldn't be up here, Drac.
Count Dracula: Who's ready to fly?
Dennis: Me! Me! Like a superhero!
Count Dracula: Better, like a vampire!
Frank: I don't know about this. He's half human. Maybe the kid isn't supposed to fly.
Count Dracula: Quiet, this is how they learn. You throw them and they figure it out. It's how I was taught.
Dennis: I want to fly now!
Count Dracula: That a bat! You know grandpa's right here if you need it.
Griffin: Ugh, I can't watch this!
Murray: Please don't!
Count Dracula: Here we go!
Frank: He's still not flying.
Count Dracula: He will.
Wayne: Still not
Count Dracula: It will happen.
Frank: This is a tall tower.
Count Dracula: That's why it's good.
Murray: You should get him!
Count Dracula: I did that my first time.
Murray: He's getting too close to the ground.
Count Dracula: You know what? He's not going to fly.
Dennis: Again! Again!1510Should this be higher or lower?

Linda: Are we sure he's a vampire?When Dennis's paternal grandmother questions if Dennis is a vampire versus a human, Count Dracula makes it his mission to prove that Dennis is a vampire. While Dennis's fangs have not yet grown in, he still has time.
Wayne: Technically, you have until you're five to get your vampire fangs.
Count Dracula: Oh, he'll get his fangs. He's just like me. Look at him!
Dennis: Blah, blah, blah
Count Dracula: I don't say, 'blah, blah, blah.'93Should this be higher or lower?

Frank: You know who could fix this kid in a snap? Vlad!Frank gets the idea to bring in Count Dracula's father, Vlad, to fix Dennis and soon Vlad arrives at Hotel Transylvania. What he sees there, however, is not exactly to his liking.
Count Dracula: Hi, dad.
Vlad: Are we ready to do this?
Murray: Ahhh! Please don't kill me!
Vlad: Talking toilet paper, that's a new one.1215Should this be higher or lower?

Mavis: Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I...When Mavis sings "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" to son Dennis, Count Dracula offers a different version of the classic tune. Just like when he sang it to Mavis, it still works to put both Mavis and Dennis to sleep.
Count Dracula: What? That's not how that one goes. What's wrong with, 'Suffer, suffer, scream in pain, blood is spilling from your brain?'
Count Dracula: Come on, you know how I sang it to you.
Mavis and Count Dracula: [together] Zombies gnaw you like a plum, piercing cries and you succumb.
Count Dracula: Still works916Should this be higher or lower?
