Dunston Checks In

Synopsis: Robert's a beleaguered concierge of the luxury hotel owned by Mrs. Dubrow. She tells Robert an undercover reviewer is coming and to look sharp. If he does well he might get a promotion and some time off to take his sons, Brian and Kyle, on vacation. But then the villainous jewel-thief Rutledge checks in with his specially trained orangutan, Dunston. And when Dunston gets loose and tries to escape a life of crime with the help of Brian and Kyle, things go just a little lunatic.

You think the same way your mother did.

Did I ever tell you that before?

Is that good?


it was never boring.

(speaking French)

If you gotta be grounded,

a five-star hotel is the place to be.

So if you'd like extra towels or ice...

(speaks French)

Enjoy your stay.

(small whimper)

(knock knock)

(knock knock knock)


Terribly sorry. It slipped out of my hand.

I heard something in there.

Probably one of my sports coats.

I've been told they're a little bit loud.

Don't you think that's funny?

Oh. Yeah, now I get it. "(chuckles)"

That's better.

Would you like to see a little trick, hm?


You know, I can do all sorts of tricks.

Do you know what my speciality is, hm?


I can make nosy little boys disappear.

One more thing...

My dollar.

Good morning. Rutledge.

Welcome to the Majestic, Mr. Rutledge.

"Lord" Rutledge.

- I beg your pardon.

- Quite all right.

The Rutledges don't stand on the ceremony.

"(woman)" Lord Rutledge.

- What are you doing here, darling?

- Mrs. Dellacroce. Are you here for the ball?

Of course.

Where is poor "Mr". Dellacroce?

Not here.

Oh? How...


Let's get to work.

300 rooms, Dunston, equals 600 earrings,

if my math serves me right.

Here we are. The Majestic Hotel.

And it's ours for the taking.

And where better to begin

than with the lovely Mrs. Dellacroce?

Room 812.

Remember her?

I hope she hasn't pawned all the best

jewelry to finance those facelifts.

I thought you'd given up.

It'll stunt your growth. Now give it back.

Dunston, I'm a little too busy

for your ever-so-amusing little games.

Now will you please give it back?!


Monkey spit.

How delicious.

Very good.

Very good.

Dunston, have you seen the ice bucket?

I have two words to say to you:

medical... experiments.
