This great family movie is a wonderful wake-up call, and an amazing adventure rolled up into one somewhat confusing journey. It starts with a short cartoon about history and progress, and how everything man creates to better his world usually ends up getting to destroy it. Then we discover there is a secret place where artists and engineers can work together without government intervention to make the world a brighter, cleaner, and healthier place. A place that does not fear science or art, and when one tries to take in a bit of culture, they do not be berated and told to remember their place. This place was design by four of the most brilliant men of the 19th Century. Tomas Edison, Nikolai Tesla, Jules Verne, and Gustave Eiffel. The cartoon ends, and our story starts where we see Frank Walker (George Clooney) in the process of recording some sort of video about an upcoming doomsday. We hear the the voice of a young woman criticizing his words, offering up suggestions on other ways he might want to get the message across. He decides to tell his story from where it all began for him. Frank was an very young, aspiring inventor on his way to the 1964 World’s Fair. Most likely one of the most futuristic expos at the time. The set looks like something right out of The Jetsons, but this expo was a real place, and it was done during a time when the Space Age was at its height, and the sky was no longer the limit.

Back when Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley created these classic gothic monsters to scare us with throughout the ages, they most likely never dreamed we’d love them so much 150 plus years in the future and beyond. Apparently, neither did any of the monsters, because that is why Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) had the Hotel Transylvania built, but that was not the main reason. As humans, and to quote the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast, “We don’t like what we don’t understand…” and such was the way we were with monsters during the 19th century, especially in Eastern Europe, which was about the time Dracula and his lovely wife had a sweet little vampire child, Mavis.
