CALIFORNIA SUITE is the story of five couples who have come to the Beverly Hills Hotel for diverse reasons and who must all confront some rather amusing personal dilemmas. Sidney Cochran (Michael Caine) becomes the victim of wife Diana's (Maggie Smith) outrage when she misses winning an Oscar(r). (Smith won a real Oscar(r) for Best Supporting Actress in this role). Marvin Michaels (Walter Matthau) must somehow explain to his wife (Elaine May) how a sexy blonde got in his bed. Wisecracking Hannah Warren (Jane Fonda) is uneasy about her ex-husband's (Alan Alda) new California lifestyle. And Dr. Chauncey Gump (Richard Pryor) must contend with his friend's (Bill Cosby) increasingly imposing manner. Great fun!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Variety Staff

Less than successful, veering from poignant emotionalism to broad slapstick in sudden shifts.

Time Out
David Pirie

Quick and varied comedy, highly suited to Neil Simon's machine-gun gag-writing.

June 21, 2017
The Spectator
Ted Whitehead

The desperation of the director, Herbert Ross, is embarrassingly obvious in the Crazy Gang antics...
