Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2 is a 2015 American 3D computer animated comedy film, the second installment in the Hotel Transylvania franchise and the sequel to the 2012 film Hotel Transylvania, with its director, Genndy Tartakovsky, and writer, Robert Smigel, returning for the film. Produced by Sony Pictures Animation, it was animated by Sony Pictures Imageworks, with an additional funding provided by LStar Capital. Hotel Transylvania 2 takes place seven years after the first film, with the hotel now open to human guests. Mavis and Johnny have a young son named Dennis, whose lack of any vampire abilities worries his grandfather Dracula. When Mavis and Johnny go on a visit to Johnny's parents, Dracula calls his friends to help him make Dennis a vampire. Soon, things turn upside-down when Dracula's old-school human-hating father Vlad unexpectedly visits the hotel. Original voices from the first film—Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Fran Drescher and Molly Shannon—returned for the sequel, with Keegan-Michael Key replacing CeeLo Green as Murray. New additions to the cast include Mel Brooks, Asher Blinkoff, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Dana Carvey and Rob Riggle. The film was released on September 25, 2015, by Columbia Pictures and was a box office success, grossing $473 million worldwide on an $80 million budget. A third film, titled Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, was released on July 13, 2018.

[Drac is in his room picking out pajamas and upset that his family might be leaving him.]

Drac:
[mocking Mavis] "Dad, it's (a baby tooth,) not a fang! Dad, I don't know if it's the right place for Dennis! Right, Johnny?" [mocking Johnny] "Oh, hey, dude-man. It's not me, it's Mavy! Hey, dude-man! I'm afraid to say anything! Hey, dudeman! I'm a dude man!"

Frankenstein('s Monster):
[at the door and peeks in] Uh, Drac, who-who are you talking to?

Shrunken Head:
Do not disturb! The Count's wiggin' out in here!

[Drac starts brushing his fangs.]

Frank(enstein's Monster):
What are you wiggin' out about, Drac?

Drac:
The kids! Mavy-wavy saying she wants to leave! [gargles with blood red mouthwash as Frank talks]

Frankenstein:
She wants to leave? W(ell… w)hat about Johnny? He doesn't want to go. He's making the hotel more human-y... for Dennis. You know, seeing that he isn't a monster.

Drac:
[flossing his fangs with a spider's web and breaks his string upon hearing this statement] He is a monster! He's just a late fanger.

Shrunken Head:
Mm-hmm, and I could be a hand model.

Drac:
Shut up! It's all that human-y stuff that's confusing poor Denisovich. [waves and a bathroom opens up in the wall, goes inside and the wall seals back up]

Frank:
So maybe you gotta get the kid around more monster-y... things. [leans on the wall and accidentally opens Drac's wardrobe closet] Ooh. Oh, I need a cape. (I'm sure Drac wouldn't mind for a moment.)

Drac:
[from inside the bathroom] (I try out, but) I can't! She's always around checking up on me!

Frank:
[goes in the closet and comes out wearing one of Drac's outfits, which fits him very tight] Man, if you could just get some alone time…

Drac:
Wait a minute! That's what Johnny wants too - alone time with Mavis!

Frank:
[chuckles at how he looks in Drac's outfit, but then all of a sudden starts suffocating from the tight clothes, panics and pulls out a spatula to wedge some space around his neck; straining] Ha-have they even had a vacation since before they were married?! [tries desperately to take off the outfit before Drac catches him wearing it and comes out of the bathroom as it seals up behind him, and at the same time, Frank just barely manages to get out of the outfit and put it back in the wardrobe before he sees]

Drac:
They're going to now, and so are we! Frank, you're a genius! [notices that Frank is shirtless and looks at him with a blank look on his face. Frank just stands there with an awkward smile on his face. He looks around the room, holds his hands, then clears his throat waiting for the awkward moment to pass as Dracula looks at him. Finally, Dracula speaks his idea] (Anyways…) We'll take Denisovch to all our old haunts. Each of us will show him our skills… teach him how to be a monster… [As he says it, he imagines himself and Dennis in the forest. He hunts and eats a white mouse while Dennis watches him in amazement and fangs suddenly sprout from his upper jaw.] ...And he'll be fanging it up in no time!

Shrunken head:
Boy turns 5 next week! If he's not a vampire by his birthday, it ain't happening!

Drac:
Oh, it ain't ain't happening, baby! All he needs is time with his vampa!

Frank:
"Vampa"?

Drac:
[exasperated] "Vampire grandpa." Come on, man! That's obvious!

[Drac just saved Dennis from falling from the condemned tower]

Dana:
Oh, dear! Oh, my devil! We're gonna have to report this!

Drac:
You mean to the papers? I guess it was pretty cool, but I'm not about getting press.

Dana:
No, sir, I mean to the authorities. I cannot report child endangerment.

Drac:
Whoa, listen to me. That was fun! Your singing is child endangerment!

[Meanwhile, on top of the tower]

Wayne:
Should we should go down and help him?

Frank:
Nope, I told him this was nuts. He's on his own! (And as for Dennis, he's gonna need more time.) [leans on the tower, causing it to fall over] (Uh, oh.)

[Back to Drac and Dana]

Dana:
We have to call the boy's mother.

Drac:
No, that ain't happening! His mother's already nutsy cuckoo!

Dana:
(Well, either way,) I have to follow protocol!

Drac:
[stares into Dana's eyes, glowing red; hypnotic] You will not follow protocol.

Dana:
[unphased] (Yes, I will... because) I'm a vampire. I can't be hypnotized.

Drac:
[back to normal] Uh, right. (I forgot vampires can't hypnotized each other.)

Dana:
Now, please, don't make me call the police!

Drac:
No one's calling nobody!

[The tower finally collapses on the campfire, lighting it and Frank.]

Frank:
Fire!

Murray:
Stop, drop and roll! Stop, drop and roll!

Wayne:
Screaming's not helping!

[The camp kids take out marshmallows on sticks, cheer and start coming to the fire to roast them; Dennis has a sad look]

Dennis:
Are we bad guys, Papa Drac?

Drac:
Bad? No! You're the best kid in the world! We didn't start the fire. It was the tower. [scolding to Dana] That's a very unsafe tower! You're lucky we don't call the authorities! [to Dennis as he puts him over his shoulders] Let's go, my hero!

Dennis:
Cebause I'm Batman! To the Batmobile!

Drac:
Yes, to the–

[After the Drac Pack returned to the hotel, Drac answers Mavis' video chat request]

Drac:
So, hey! When are you going to get here already? We've been waiting… [looks up and sees Mavis standing a few feet away, looking angry at him, much to his shock]

Mavis:
[sternly] Give me my son.

Drac:
We just went out for some avocados!

Dennis:
Mommy, I flew!

Mavis:
I saw. [angrily holds up her smartphone and plays a YouTube clip titled "Dracula Remix" with over 2,000,000 hits. The clip intercuts Dennis falling from the tower with rapid edits of Dracula arguing with Dana to a rhythm track]

Drac:
[on video] His mother's already nutsy cuckoo! Nutsy cuckoo! Ah-ooh! Eh-ah-ee-ee! Cuckoo! [As the music continues, he looks shocked, realizing he's busted. Blobby, oblivious, dances to the beat as the video continues.]

Dana:
[on video] Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh-oh-oh my devil. I have to follow protocol.

Drac:
[on video] That ain't happening! That ain't happening! His mother's already ah-kee-kee-a cuckoo! Ah-kee-ooh-ah-ee-ah cuckoo! [echoing]

[The video ends and Drac looks down in shame as Dennis and Mavis embrace.]

Mavis:
[to her dad, Drac] I was worried Dennis wasn't safe around other monsters. Now I don't even feel like he's safe around you.

Drac:
But I was just–

Mavis:
What was it you said? "Human, monster, unicorn." That it didn't matter?

Drac:
Well, I just know his life would–

Mavis:
We'll have his birthday party here on Wednesday, then we're moving.

Drac:
Please, Mavey, don't leave.

Mavis:
[sadly] Maybe you've let humans into your hotel, Dad, but I don't think you've let them into your heart. [takes Dennis inside the hotel, still worried he would be hurt; Johnny looks down sadly and follows her, leaving Drac]

[After Dennis' 5th birthday party is ruined]

Vlad:
[to his son, Dracula] Hey, what did you just do? A few more seconds and the kid's fangs would have popped right out.

Drac:
I don't care! It's... it's not worth it!

Mavis:
What's not worth it?

Drac:
It was my last attempt to make the boy a vampire so you'd stay.

Mavis:
By ruining his favorite thing? How could you (made Grandpa Vlad) do that?

Johnny:
We were desperate!

Mavis:
You were in on this( too)?

Johnny:
Dennis won't be happy in my town.

Mavis:
(But) Dennis hasn't been there( yet)!

Erik:
[plays organ while singing] The husband and wife! Hear the strain and the strife–

Drac, Mavis and Johnny:
[to Erik] SHUT UP!

Mavis:
(Oh, boy…) Johnny, Dennis is not a monster! [Vlad makes a shocked face] He likes avocado!

Johnny:
'Cause you don't let him eat anything fun!

Linda:
I think Dennis just wants to be normal.

Mavis:
Can we stop using the word, "normal"?

[Dennis walks away sadly, feeling not good enough to fit in]

Drac:
Where we live now, he's normal!

Mavis:
He is who he is and you can't change him, Dad.

[Dennis runs out of the room, Winnie follows him. Bella watches them from the window. Outside the castle... in the forest...]

Winnie:
Dennis, where are you going?

Dennis:
Away!

Winnie:
But it's not safe out here by ourselves. I know a place where we can hide. Follow me! [they run to a tree house as their secret hiding place]

[Back at the party...]

Vlad:
If you didn't stop me, my great-grandson wouldn't have to be a wimp his whole life, like schlumpy over here. [gestures to Johnny]

Johnny:
"A wimp"!?

Drac:
Johnny, be cool.

Johnny:
[climbs on the stage, and walks to him] You wanna throw down, old man?! [does karate move at him] Certified yellow belt since 1997! [takes off his wig, blowing his cover]

Drac:
No! (Oh, too late…)

Vlad:
What's this now, you're not a vampire?

Johnny:
(Huh? Oh…) [guilty] Uh, bleh?

Mike:
Of course he's (a) human. He's our son( in fact). You think we're monsters? [he and Linda wipe off their make-up, revealing their true selves]

Vlad:
[gasps; to Drac] You! You let your daughter marry a human and have a human kid! Why don't you just put a stake through my heart?!

Drac:
We don't hate humans anymore and they don't hate us( either).

[the other humans reveal themselves as well]

Bela:
(W-what?) [outraged of this charade] HUMANS!? [scratches the window, and growls]

Vlad:
You're a fool!

Drac:
Your great-grandson is the sweetest, kindest, most special boy I've ever met. And if you can't give him the love he deserves because he's half-human, then you're the fool.

Mavis:
[hugs him lovingly] Oh, Daddy.

[Drac hugs her back]

Johnny:
Hey, (speaking of which…) where is Dennis? Dennis!

Mavis:
Dennis?
