Sony's digi-toon plays better on the small screen

We had reservations about Sony's 3D digi-toon when it checked into cinemas: too frantic, too madcap, too in-your-face.

But this tale of a luxury inn for iconic feature-creatures plays better on the small screen - where helmer Genndy Tartakovsky, a veteran of the Cartoon Network, first earned his spurs.

Adam Sandler remains an acquired taste as a Fawlty-esque Dracula trying to keep daughter Selena Gomez from flying the coop with Andy Samberg’s human.

But Steve Buscemi is grrrr-eat as a hen-pecked wolfman.
