Dunston Checks In is a 1996 family comedy that will make a chimp out of any chumps that should miss it! Robert Grant (Jason Alexander, Seinfeld) is the concierge of the massive and luxurious Majestic Hotel. Grant is at wits end, underpaid and worked to the bone and desperately seeks to take his two boys, Kyle (Eric Lloyd) and Brian (Graham Sack) on a much needed vacation, but when the owner Mrs. Dubrow (Faye Dunaway) hears that the hotel is being considered for a six star rating, it falls on Grant to see that everything is perfect when the rating staff arrives. Since the staff will arrive unannounced, Grant has to be extra nice to anyone who looks like they could be on the staff, so he finds himself giving star treatment to Lord Rutledge (Rupert Everett) who is actually a jewel thief who has come to the hotel to take advantage, he brings his pet orangutan, Dunston, who has been trained to steal. Dunston gets lost; Kyle finds him and discovers he makes a cool playmate, which makes things more difficult for his dad.moreless
