Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Hotel Transylvania 2 is the sequel to the popular (if not particularly critically successful) monster comedy Hotel Transylvania and once again features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, and Selena Gomez. Except for a few blink-and-you'll-miss-them "angry faces" from Dracula and a couple of other vampires (and the monsters' somewhat creepy appearance in general), the one genuinely scary part is when a group of demon bats fights the human-friendly monsters near the end of the movie. Language includes mild insults like "stupid" and "imbecile," and the romance is limited to a couple of kisses. Positive messages focus on family unity and diversity, and the characters are all trying hard to do well.
A battle late in the movie between demon bats and the monsters is scary. The friends accidentally set a camp on fire with their antics. A car explodes. The monsters try to scare people but fail. It looks like a boy will fall to injury, but his grandfather saves him.
Insults like "idiot," "shut up," "imbecile."
Messages about the importance of tolerance, fighting prejudice, and celebrating diversity.
