Movie (p)review: Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania, in case you did not know it, is a great movie, combining the voices of some of greatest comic actors with wonderful animation that will be enjoyed by kids and adults.
I was able to host a Hotel Transylvania party at my house this weekend courtesy of Crowdtap. They made wonderful party games and suggestions available to get everyone in the mood for Halloween and also discuss the movie.

The main characters are Mavis, a slightly different heroine (monster, tsk, tsk) and Johnnystein (a mere normal human being) - who of course fall in love and have to overcome some difficulties, namely Mavis' father (Dracula) who does not like humans!

He is right, how can Mavis prefer Johnnystein to the nice strapping monster? The kids loved to color the pages provided by Crowdtap and eat cupcakes, which were appropriately decorated with gummyworms and looked too goolishly fun to eat almost.
