QUICK TAKE:
Animated Comedy: Dracula and his family and friends take a cruise where he ends up falling for the ship's human captain, unaware that she's the great-granddaughter of his longtime vampire-hunting nemesis.
PLOT:
Despite having family and friends and running a successful hotel for monsters, Dracula (voice of ADAM SANDLER) is lonely, having lost the "zing" of his life, his wife, long ago. Mistaking that for being overworked, his daughter, Mavis (voice of SELENA GOMEZ), surprises him with a cruise into the Bermuda Triangle and the ultimate destination of Atlantis.

Joining them is Mavis' human husband, Jonathan (voice of ANDY SAMBERG), and their young son, Dennis (voice of ASHER BLINKOFF); along with Frankenstein (voice of KEVIN JAMES); Wayne the werewolf (voice of STEVE BUSCEMI); Murray the mummy (voice of KEEGAN MICHAEL KEY); Griffin the invisible man (voice of DAVID SPADE); Dracula's father, Vlad (voice of MEL BROOKS); and a variety of other family members and fellow monster friends.

Despite believing one only gets one single zing (love) in their lives, Dracula ends up instantly smitten with the ship's captain, Ericka (voice of KATHRYN HAHN). Unbeknownst to him or anyone else, she's the great-granddaughter of Abraham Van Helsing (voice of JIM GAFFIGAN) who long ago hunted Dracula and his kind.

Still alive thanks to a number of old mechanical contraptions, he's also on board and wants Ericka to lure Dracula to him. But she wants to get the job done herself, although her quest ends up complicated by the fact that she starts to fall for the bloodsucker.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first two films, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
