Monster Family

Emma Watson stars in this animated family comedy about a dysfunctional family trying to reconnect when they are suddenly turned into monsters.

With a struggling bookshop, an overworked husband, and two misunderstood teenagers, Emma Wishbone (Watson) is at her wit's end trying to be the perfect mum. After dragging her family to a costume party on Halloween night, they are cursed by an evil witch and transformed into a vampire, a mummy, a werewolf, and Frankenstein's monster. Now Emma must fight to keep her monster family together and uncover the secret of their curse... eventually leading them to the Prince of Darkness himself, Dracula.

Derivative, barrel-scraping "family animation" at its worst.

Adults are better off rewatching Hotel Transylvania (2012) or The Incredibles (2004), whose dysfunctional families are more human than this one.

The whole thing is exhausting, with too much slapstick, too few decent laughs and a care-y share-y message of family togetherness.

An anything-goes hodgepodge in need of a smarter, tighter narrative and more deftly conceived and rendered characters.

... a clunky, ungainly and misconceived affair, neither witty nor visually imaginative enough even to begin to compare with the best Hollywood animation.
