Too few scenes with Maggie Smith and Michael Caine
I think the movie contains funny parts, but some scenes are not that interesting, for example Alan Alda talking way too much stuff. So I think it’s only about average. I must say, though, that Michael Caine and Maggie Smith did great work. They are a nice couple and really fit together very well. In my opinion their scenes are the best of the movie. I love their funny and sarcastic conversations – it’s entertaining and one of the reasons I actually watched the movie until the end. I’m just a little disappointed that they don’t show up as often as I’d like. It would’ve been more interesting that way. Of course there are lots of other big names in that movie, e.g. Walter Matthau, Alan Alda and Jane Fonda, but I must really underline Maggie Smith’s and Michael Caine’s good performances.
Various guests arrive at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Hannah (Jane Fonda) and Bill Warren (Alan Alda) are a troubled couple getting a divorce. Chauncey Gump (Richard Pryor) and Willis Panama (Bill Cosby) are bickering Chicago doctors vacationing with their wives. London actress Diana Barrie (Maggie Smith) travels with her closeted husband Sidney Cochran (Michael Caine) for her Oscar nomination. Marvin Michaels (Walter Matthau) is surprised by the call girl sent by his sleazy brother Harry and then his wife arrives.
The four stories have varying effectiveness. I most wanted to see this movie for Pryor. His and Cosby’s section has the foursome in quirky slapstick comedy. It’s odd. Pryor is more known in slapstick with usual partner Gene Wilder. Cosby’s present day troubles is problematic. Matthau’s section has one main scene. It suffers a little due to the fact that he’s not an innocent. It would be infinitely funnier if none of it is his fault. Imagine him finding the hooker naked in bed and immediately his wife arrives. That way he does nothing wrong and is left with all the blame. That would be infinitely funnier. The Fonda Alda coupling is rather forgettable and it could have been more. Maybe if their children joins them and they have to deal with them. Smith and Caine have the best part. In fact, Maggie gets an Oscar which is ironic for this story. They do great work and have room to do the work.
