The sight of Adam Sandler in animated form makes him—and the puerile bullshit he usually does in his live-action films—slightly bearable. Here, his Count Dracula runs a hotel/ resort that serves as a relaxing getaway for the vilified monsters of the world, and that includes his pals Frankenstein (a Seth Rogen-like Kevin James), the Wolfman (Steve Buscemi), the Mummy (Cee-Lo Green) and the Invisible Man (David Spade). They all show up for the 118th birthday of Dracula's daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez). The script was co-written by famed SNL writer and longtime Sandler crony Robert Smigel, although I like to think the slower, more clever moments came from the other co-writer, Peter Baynham, who co-wrote the underappreciated Arthur Christmas last year.

Bearable Adam Sandler in Hotel Transylvania
