The narrative starts with the guests (monsters) turning up to celebrate 118th Birthday of Mavis. The list includes characters like Frankenstein, werewolves, invisible man, mummies, Bigfoot, to name a few. Now, what happens when a human named Jonathan also joins the guests? The laughter bomb explodes when Jonathan tries to fit in with other guests.
It is a roller coaster ride for the entire family, which ends with some deep thoughts on the Father-daughter relationship. On a scale of 1-10, this one gets a 10 on Laugh-o-meter scale for us. Watch this movie for some out of the box visuals.
