Critic Reviews for Plaza Suite
Mediocre Neil Simon-based flick with some frantic work by Matthau and Co.
the best way to take Neil Simon material: In short, manageable chunks
Audience Reviews for Plaza Suite
the first and the last segments are the best
Matthau is flawless in the 70's and he is great in this movie.He plays 3 different characters and they are all great.The 1st story with Maureen Stapleton is the best and most dramatic.The 2nd story is the weakest,but is still entertaing. The last story is Matthau just being pissed off and funny. If you like Matthau then this is a must-see.
This comedy/drama has three separate stories are linked together with the common factor of all being set at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Walter Matthau stars in all three as separate characters.
I am not a big fan of Neil Simon's writing, NO ONE talks like he writes. People who come up with smug one liners in an instant are few and far between. Often his characters come off abrasive as well. But this film has a cast that saves the trite writing and make it worth watching. Maureen Stapleton, Lee Grant and Barbara Harris are quite memorable, especially Stapleton.
