Dunston Checks In

Dunston Checks In

Ken Kwapis (1996)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Here's the primate with the mostest! Early Tarzan films led the way, with the ape-man's own furry jungle swinger, Cheetah. Now there's Dunston (played by Sam), an orangutan acting as the unwilling sidekick to a snooty English peer (Rupert Everett) who wants to use him to burgle New York's Majestic Hotel. It's amiable tosh, but Dunston's antics - especially when he's rescued by the hotel manager's two young sons - are as delightfully appealing as Faye Dunaway's rudely ruthless proprietor is unattractive.


A gentleman jewel thief's pet orang-utan runs amok in a swanky hotel, causing endless problems for the put-upon manager who has enough on his plate trying to ensure the establishment successfully attains a six-star rating. Family comedy, starring Jason Alexander, Rupert Everett, Faye Dunaway, Eric Lloyd and Paul Reubens.
