Genndy Tartakovsky's crummy cartoon would suck under any circumstances, but its inadequacies are particularly glaring when it comes out the week before Tim Burton's macabre gem, Frankenweenie. Any film that has a poop, a fart, and two pee jokes during the opening credits is in trouble, especially with Adam Sandler in the cast. He voices the character of Count Chocula, sorry, I mean Dracula, who has built the title resort for monsters seeking refuge from humans. But his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) wants to venture outside, something the overprotective Count dreads. Enter Jonathan (Andy Samberg), a backpacking dolt who quickly proves Dracula's point that humans are worse than monsters, or at least more annoying. Tasteless and sentimental, yet unfunny and offensive (instead of do not disturb signs the doorknobs are hung with shrunken heads that talk in Amos and Andy voices), this is one film you don't want to take the kids to. Especially when paying extra bucks for the worst 3D of the year.
