Storyline

Film version of the Neil Simon play has three separate acts set in the same hotel suite in New York's Plaza Hotel with Walter Matthau in a triple role. In the first, Karen Nash tries to get her inattentive husband Sam's attention to spruce up their failing marriage. In the second, brash film producer Jesse Kiplinger tries to get his former one-time flame Muriel to see him for what he stands for. In the third, Roy Hubley and his wife Norma try and try to get their uncertain-of-herself daughter out of the bathroom before her approaching wedding. Written by Matthew Patay

Trivia

Location filming and exteriors were conducted at the real-life Plaza Hotel in New York City. Interiors of the Plaza Suite though were filmed on sound stages at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. See more »

Goofs

Each act is set in Suite 719. In Act 3, Ed Hubley goes out on the ledge outside the suite's window. However in the final shot of The Plaza it is clear that the ledge is outside the fourth floor (not the seventh floor). See more »

Three stories in one movie
12 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie features Walter Matthau in three separate roles but the real stars are the women he performs with: Maureen Stapleton, Barbara Harris and Lee Grant. In each case, we see them in the roles of wife, girlfriend and mother. Maureen Stapleton's role was sad and the other two--Harris and Grant-- are comical. I found the roles of these women were more interesting and the acting more convincing than Walter Matthau. I am a fan of Walter Matthau but in this film he gives a lacklustre performance with limited material in the first story and overblown performances in the other two. Matthau is usually a very funny guy with great lines and superb delivery but the humour just isn't there and the lines fall flat. All three stories deal with marriage and relationships at various stages of life. The common thread is that they take place in the same suite at New York City's Plaza Hotel, a Neil Simon touch.
