“Plaza Suite” is the story of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York. In the first, a suburban couple takes the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned years. This wry tale 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 sexual diversion — but she turns out to be more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter, who has locked herself in the bathroom, down to the ballroom for her wedding.
