Plot Synopsis:

Widower Robert Grant is the manager of the tony Majestic Hotel, where he's raising his two sons. Robert's very nervous, because an inspector from a distinguished travel guide is due to arrive shortly, so everything MUST be perfect. But things go awry when a thief named Rutledge arrives at the hotel, and is mistaken for the inspector. Even more chaos ensues when Rutledge's assistant Dunston -- an adroit orangutan -- escapes from his cruel owner and befriends Robert's young son Kyle. With mistaken identities and simian hijinks turning the hotel upside-down, Robert's worst nightmare has just been realized.
So can he keep everything under control when the REAL inspector arrives'
