Transylvania 6-5000

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Transylvania 6-5000- 3 out of 5

Two reporters played by Ed Begley Jr. and Jeff Goldblum are sent to Transylvania to do a story on Frankenstien's monster. What follows is a a comedy that throws in nearly every Universal monster you can think of: Dracula, the Wolfman, a mummy, etc.

The movie isn't the funniest thing I've watched but it isn't terrible either. Much of the movie isn't laugh out loud funny and most scenes provide merely a chuckle here and there but that's still a lot better than some of the comedies that are released into the world. Sure the jokes don't make my sides split but it's not like watching a Dane Cook show where the silence is something that can put a baby to sleep. No, this movie is pretty entertaining and fun to watch.

Ed Begley Jr. and Jeff Goldblum work well together and there are some other great actors doing some work here as well. Carol Kane and John Byner have some decent moments together and Michael Richards has some very funny moments. The bane of Ferris Bueller's life is here (Jeffrey Jones) and he's amusing because his Transylvanian accent comes and goes. There's also some eye candy in the form of Geena Davis as one of the hottest vampires I've ever seen.

All in all, this movie isn't the funniest thing I've seen but it's not terrible either. The film has some genuinely funny moments and offers up some decent entertainment that can be easily enjoyed on a rainy day or if there's nothing on TV.
