Hahn: She does not have much importance in her role as Ericka. Ericka is the ship’s captain, but she’s also Van-Helsing’s grand-daughter.
Gaffigan: As Van Helsing, he has been stalking Dracula since ages & now in his old age it has reduced to a device, with its human parts only i.e. the face & the neck.
STORY: It is the third film in the Hotel Transylvania series and brings some scary violence, tense chases, confrontations and crashes during the luxury voyage of Count Dracula and his ‘Drac Pack’, including his half-human daughter, and her family on a monster cruise captained by Erica (Gomez). The Count is unaware that Erica is the daughter of his nemesis and on a mission to destroy the monster.
SCREENPLAY: Short on inspiration
DIRECTION: Adam Sandler’s directional talent is on display in plenty of occasions however lack of creativity and ingenuity that was on display during earlier Hotel Transylvania movies is missing.
HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION (2018): This animation Movie has material for an audience of all ages with a punch of romance, few unflattering depictions of female characters and buxom witches chasing. There is some positivity like embracing diversity, leave negative feelings and grudges, believing in the power of love, communication between parents and kids, the importance of parent behavior.
