Dunston Checks In


Just before Babe the pig changed children’s films forever, this CGi-free monkey tale was an ideal romp for animal loving kids of all ages. Dunston the orang-utan lives an unhappy life as the sidekick of cruel owner  Lord Rutledge (Rupert Everett), who uses Dunston’s talents in scaling walls as a breaking-and-entering device. Eric Lloyd plays the hotel-based kid who befriends Dunston, with Jason Alexander and Faye Dunaway amongst thee humans. Any film in which the culprit is tracked down by discovering which hotel room has the most bananas delivered sets a mischievous tone, and with a scintillating central performance as Dunston, and a Terry-Thomas act from Everett, Dunston Checks In is well worth checking out for families.
