California Suite

Neil Simon, Ray Stark, and Herbert Ross at it again, which means middle-class angst covered with a thin veneer of snappy one-liners and presented in the most anonymous directorial style imaginable. Cutting awkwardly among four separate stories set at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Ross makes one appreciate the relative fluidity managed by Robert Altman in the multicharacter structure of A Wedding. Leaden fluff, dutifully embodied by Alan Alda, Michael Caine, Bill Cosby, Jane Fonda, Walter Matthau, Elaine May, Richard Pryor, and Maggie Smith.
