DIRECTOR: KEN KWAPIS

CAST: SAM THE ORANGUTAN, ERIC LLOYD, JASON ALEXANDER, FAYE DUNAWAY

The pinnacle of the ‘90s monkey movie boom lays its scene at the posh Majestic Hotel, where the concierge—Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander, exquisitely exasperated as only he can be—struggles to keep things running like clockwork for taskmaster owner Faye Dunaway, a difficult job made impossible with the arrival of one guest’s particularly problematic pet, a kleptomaniac orangutan named Dunston who’s stealing and hoarding the other guests’ jewels. “Plays like a tribute to the resourceful, unpretentious studio productions of the past.”—The LA Times
