Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler has had one of the most successful post-Saturday Night Live careers of all time, and he has never been afraid to jump across genres. Despite cementing his cinematic comedy reputation with gross, anarchist films like Billy Madison and Glad Gilmorehe has become a surprisingly nuanced dramatic actor with films like The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Featured) and Punch-Drunk Love and even a credible romantic leading man in 50 first dater and The wedding singer. One genre Adam Sandler has not really touched on (so far) is horror, however Hotels Transylvania may be the closest he has come yet. Admittedly, it is an animated children’s film with family-friendly versions of the classic Universal Monsters in the lead role, but there is still horror in the DNA. It is also currently streaming for free (with ads) on the Amazon Prime Videos FreeVee service.

Hotels Transylvania plays Adam Sandler as Count Dracula, who in this particular incarnation is less of an eternal, blood-sucking creature of godless condemnation and more of a well-meaning hotelier and overprotective father of Mavis (Selena Gomez, who replaces Miley Cyrus after she was allegedly cast for non- family-friendly behavior). A big part of the action to Hotels Transylvania is about Mavis’ upcoming 118th birthday, which is mainly treated as the eighteenth birthday of a vampire. If you’re not comfortable with that leap of comic logic, Adam Sandlers Hotels Transylvania may not be the family movie for you.

It is finally revealed that Adam Sandler’s Dracula once had a wife named Martha, who was killed by a mob of angry human villagers (he also does not drink human blood because it is too fat, something you will not read in Bram Stoker). Since then, he has isolated Mavis from the rest of the world and even goes so far as to make zombies dress up as city people to show his daughter how hostile the world can be. The real plot begins when a human hiker named Jonathan “Johnny” Loughran (Andy Samberg) accidentally stumbles across the titular Hotel Transylvania and hijackings ensue, Mavis and Johnny fall in love, Adam Sandler is against it and so is he for it, he realizes that he can not keep his daughter out of the world forever and that people no longer hate monsters (debatable, but okay), and it’s even a classic hectic run to the airport for love’s sake. In this version, Adam Sandler as Dracula is there to confess his daughter’s love for a human being, which may seem strange, but it works.

As always, Adam Sandler took his usual group of friends with him to vote for various other classic monsters. Frequent co-star Kevin James gives voice to an articulate and sensitive Frankenstein, while Steve Buscemi plays a werewolf named Wayne with an absurdly large young of very nose-sensitive puppies. David Spade plays the invisible man, Jon Lovitz is Quasimodo (who is the hotel’s chef for one reason or another), and a whole host of other comedy gems like Chris Parnell, Fran Drescher, Rob Riggle and Brian Stack appear in various roles. For some reason, CeeLo Green is also there as a mummy, although he would be replaced by the more likeable Keegan-Michael Key in subsequent sequels.

Hotels Transylvania had a surprisingly torturing path to cinema. Although “Adam Sandler as a Comic Vampire” feels like it’s the kind of idea that would come from a Sony Pictures boss who woke up from a sweaty fever dream, it was actually created by comedian and screenwriter Todd Durham. The idea was developed as a franchise from the start, which was foresighted. So far, the Hotel Transylvania brand has produced four feature films, several short films, a TV series, a number of video games, a few theme park attractions, and we can assume lunch boxes with Adam Sandler as Dracula on.

The film went through five different directors before landing on renowned animator Genndy Tartakovsky (by Dexter’s laboratory, Samurai Jackand Star Wars: Clone Wars fame) in his feature film directorial debut. He could have done worse than teaming up with Adam Sandler and Universal Monsters for the first time in the hot seat, when the film raised over $ 350 million at the box office and launched an entire franchise. Adam Sandler has moved on to far more entertaining, successful and critically acclaimed films since then, but Hotels Transylvania will probably be the first time an entire generation meets him.
