    Adam Sandler must have some midas touch because no matter what film looks like they will be stinkers at the box office turns into a hit.

    its a kids movie. they weren’t there for him. most went because either selena’s character or to see what happens to mavis and johnny. if sandler is smart he should make hotel t in to a tv series or a netflix series. with the same actors.

    That actually seems more logical than some would assume. The moviegoing audience seems to be more looking for fun than drama now. Like what you see in Hotel Transylvania 2 clips and quotes showing how fun it is.
