    What an amazing performance and what a brilliant commentary on Hollywood. That Oscar was definitely well deserved.

    Smells like vodka spilt on a dusty carpet. Thoroughly unpleasant and unorganized. Severely unfunny.

    It's surprising how a cast of this calibre could produce such a mediocre film. In what are basically a series of unconnected sketches, the comedy is lazy, and only the Alda/Fonda thread is any good. Matthau isn't so bad but he's given poor material to work with.

    Episodic adaptation of Neil Simon is only worth the segment that ricochets back and forth with Maggie Smith and Michael Caine. She's an Oscar nominated actress who is visiting the the Sunshine State for the Academy Award ceremony along with her closeted antique shop owner husband played by Caine. The comic biting dialogue and asides about Hollywood and the really heartfelt emotion from the two are stellar. The rest of the film consists of three other stories that have belabored scripted dialogue (Alda, Fonda), awful hateful slapstick (Pryor, Cosby) and a lukewarm French Farce from Brooklyn with Matthau and Elaine May.

    is it just dated, or is it as bad as it felt - i.e. a TV "B" movie. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Holy hell, this ensemble! This was sort of a magical period for everyone involved. It won't make the highlight reel of anyone's career, but the novelty of having so much talent under one roof doesn't wear off during the running time.

    Unexpectedly, the only players who stand out as wooden are Alan Alda and Jane Fonda. They're kind of... stagey? Is that even a legitimate criticism when dealing with a Neil Simon script? Their segments are the most laden with…

    A film in which Bill Cosby's character surreptitiously drugs his co-star in order to take advantage...

    This is a star-studded adaptation of Neil Simon's play - four stories all centred on a hotel in LA. While the canvas may be wider on film than at the theatre, this still feels like a theatrical piece - sometimes bedroom farce, sometimes verbal pas-de-deux and just occasionally a profound look at relationships and the compromises we make in them.

    The joy is watching…

    Very entertaining movie with a lot of great actors. You could say that you have to be careful when a lot of famous actors are in a movie, but in this case it is a blessing!
    It all happens in a hotel and the different situations are sometimes funny and sometimes tragic.

    They say that tragedy plus time equals comedy. Unfortunately, comedy plus time equals stale, dated, and incredibly unfunny comedy.

    I rented this movie because I was under the impression that Elaine May directed it. (She didn't.) Even without her directorial hand at work, she is by far the best thing about the film, delivering the best line and giving the best performance. Unfortunately, she only shows up at the end and is in the film for a very brief period…

    Pored plejade odličnih glumaca, i komičara, film o grupi raznih profila ljudi koji se nađu u hotelu, za odmor, poslovno, ili da bi se sreli sa porodicom, uglavnom lijep film sa humorom kad ljudi ponižavaju jedni druge, al tako pametno i sarkastično napisano da pored smijeha, kažeš: auuu što ga mu spusti.

    Jane Fonda/Alan Alda + Maggie Smith/Michael Caine are working in a five-star movie. Walter Matthau/Elaine May + Bill Cosby/Richard Pryor are working in a one-star movie. Throw in the amazing opening credits and split the difference.
