Robert Grant (Jason Alexander) is the concierge of the elegant Majestic Hotel. With inspectors due for a surprise visit, the Majestic's owner, Mrs. Dubrow (Faye Dunaway), puts extra pressure on Robert to keep the establishment running flawlessly. Robert, hoping to be rewarded with some time off of work to relax with his sons (Eric Lloyd, Graham Sack), vows to put the utmost care into his duties -- a task that's complicated by one guest's unruly, light-fingered orangutan, Dunston.

    Did the world really need another kids movie with an animal? No, but at least the movie isn't terrible. It's got a couple of funny scenes.

    This is a great childrens movie I used to watch as a kid. This movie is about this orangutan which moves in to this fancy New York hotel and causes all kinds of trouble. I thought it was cute and very relaxing to watch. The monkey is very cute and well trained. If you're on the look for a good movie to watch with your children this one would be a very good choice.

    You might expect "Dunston Checks In" to be a kiddy or cutesy show, and in a way it is, but it can also be a good family movie for anybody who likes comedies. A manager of a 5-star hotel in New York, Mr. Grant (Jason Alexander), has a great job, but he has to watch every step he takes because if he makes one mistake in the eyes of the owner, Mrs. Dubrow (Faye Dunaway), he could lose his high paying job and go from living in a 5-star hotel to something not so nice. Mr. Grant has two kids to raise, but things just might go haywire when an orangutan starts hanging out at the hotel. But not to fret, not only is the orangutan named Dunston real smart, he can also make simple things hilarious. "Dunston Checks In" isn't a groundbreaking comedy and it's not that original, but it is fun to watch, and it can be funny. I recommend anybody who likes comedies that feature an animal as the main star to at least rent "Dunston Checks In," if not buying it. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001. Something about this movie I always loved and have watched it several times. It's not Jason Alexander, the orangutan, or anything, just the culmination of it as a whole somehow works to a charm.
