Plaza Suite is a 1971 American comedy film based on the play of the same name by Neil Simon. The movie, directed by Arthur Hiller, stars Walter Matthau, Maureen Stapleton, and Barbara Harris in three different stories, each set in a suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The first story, titled "Visitor from Mamaroneck," follows a couple, Sam and Karen Nash (Matthau and Stapleton), who return to their honeymoon suite at the Plaza Hotel to celebrate their anniversary. However, the couple quickly realizes that their marriage has lost its passion and they struggle to reconnect with each other. The story is a humorous and bittersweet exploration of the nature of long-term relationships.

The second story, "Visitor from Hollywood," features Harris as a Hollywood actress named Jesse Kiplinger who invites her high school sweetheart, Muriel Tate (played by Stapleton), to her suite at the Plaza Hotel. However, Muriel soon realizes that Jesse only invited her to the hotel to seduce her into having an affair. The story is a satirical take on the shallow and superficial world of Hollywood celebrities.

The final story, titled "Visitor from Forest Hills," centers on a nervous groom (played by Matthau) who is waiting in his suite at the Plaza Hotel for his bride to arrive. However, the bride never shows up and the groom is left to confront his own fears and anxieties about marriage. The story is a poignant and moving exploration of the pressure and expectations that come with weddings and relationships.

Overall, Plaza Suite is a charming and witty film that explores the complexities and challenges of romantic relationships. The three stories are interconnected thematically, exploring the different stages and phases of love and marriage. Matthau, Stapleton, and Harris give terrific performances, bringing a depth and nuance to their characters. The film's humor is sharp and insightful, with Simon's witty dialogue adding a memorable and enduring quality to the experience. With its iconic New York City setting and talented cast, Plaza Suite is a classic romantic comedy that is well worth revisiting.
