Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza.
A mother and father fight about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where groom and guests not-so-patiently wait for her.
This high-energy act is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little "diversion." Over the years, she's idolized him from afar and is now more than the match for which he bargained.
The final act involves a suburban couple renting the room while their house is being painted. It turns out to be the same suite in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24) years earlier and today's their anniversary . . . or was it yesterday? A tale of a marriage in tatters ensues.
