MUMBAI: Star Gold is featuring the Ken Kwapis directed Dunston Checks In as part of its Hollywood Mahaspecials.
The cast of the film includes Jason Alexander, Faye Dunaway and Eric Llyod. The film will be aired on 24 June 2007 at 8:30 pm.
As manager of the Majestic Hotel, Robert Grant (Jason Alexander) is trained to handle the most chaotic situations with ease. He deftly juggles the needs of his staff, his clients, his two sons, and his cold-hearted boss, Mrs Dubrow (Faye Dunaway), without breaking a sweat. There’s nothing he can’t handle. That is, until Dunston checks in.
Forced into a life of crime, Dunston is an orangutan and the captive partner of the low-life jewel thief, Lord Rutledge (Rupert Everett). When Dunston flees his malevolent master, he quickly turns a five-star hotel into a three-ring circus.
Joining Dunston in his madcap antics is Robert’s young son, Kyle, who rescues the young orangutan from Lord Rutledge. Together, Dunston and Kyle (Eric Lloyd) make some merry mischief in the glamorous hostelry, much to the chagrin of the hotel’s frantic staff and befuddled guests, as well as a determined but inept animal control officer named La Farge.
