Storyline

Jay Menlow is jilted at the altar by his fiancée, Cynthia Hampton. His pal, Ross Kingsley, persuades him to use his reserved-in-advance accommodations at the Boca Roca Hotel (honeymooners only) in lieu of the doomed honeymoon. Ross will accompany him to bolster him up and Cynthia will soon beg to have him back. Ross' gesture is not quite as altruistic as it appears. He has been fooling around with Sherry Nugent, his employer Mr. Sampson's girlfriend, and figures that a brief exodus from New York and his boss is in his own best interest. However, Mr. Sampson shows up followed by his ever loving wife who has decided to find out just what goes on on her husband "business" trips. Complications, including schemes to avoid the hotel's "no bachelors allowed" rule also follow. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Only married heteros
23 January 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A couple of Broadway names, Robert Goulet from Camelot and Robert Morse from How To Succeed In Business, star in Honeymoon Hotel in an attempt to make film stars of both. The two never did become box office together or separately.

Poor Bobby Morse gets jilted at the altar, but best man Goulet decides since we've got our reservations at a Honeymoon Hotel in the Carribean. Of course in those days before same sex marriage they have their problems. Goulet has an agenda, he's pursuing his boss's side dish Jill St. John. The boss is Keenan Wynn and you can't blame him for his indiscretion being married to harriden Elvia Allman.

Bob and Bob try an awful lot to get that Bing and Bob effect, but it doesn't go over quite so well with them. The Dorothy Lamour of the piece is hotel recreation director Nancy Kwan who has some real nice moves on the dance floor.

But one should never pass up an opportunity to see Jill St.John playing one of her patented bimbos.

Nice film, but Goulet and Morse will never be Crosby and Hope.
