'Hotel for Dogs,' stars Emma Roberts, Jake T. Austin, Lisa Kudrow, Kevin Dillon and Don Cheadle in a smart, funny, comedy adventure that shows how far love and imagination can take you. When 16 year old Andi (Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Austin), find themselves in a foster home with a strict 'no pets' policy, Andi has to use her quick wit to help find a new home for their dog, Friday. The kids stumble upon an abandoned hotel and begin transforming it into the perfect home for Friday - as well as all the strays in the city. In no time, the kids have transformed the old hotel into something truly magical: a home for both the dogs and themselves. But they have also aroused the suspicions of the police who want to know - who let the dogs in?
