Four of the most celebrated directors in the independent film community pooled their talents for this episodic comedy. Ted (Tim Roth) is the new bellboy at a beautiful but decaying luxury hotel; he is not having a good time of it on New Year's Eve, his first night on the job. In one room, a coven of witches are trying to summon the spirit of the goddess Diana; each of the witches must bring a different bodily fluid for their spell to work, but Eva (Ione Skye), who was supposed to bring semen, managed to lose her supplies, and needs Ted's help for a last-minute replacement. Another room, where Ted was supposed to deliver some ice, turns out to house an angry husband (David Proval), who is holding his bound-and-gagged wife (Jennifer Beals) at gunpoint. A third room is taken by a tough-talking gangster (Antonio Banderas), his doormat wife (Tamlyn Tomita), and their two children; the gangster demands that Ted watch over the kids, who turn out to be mischievous terrors beyond Ted's wildest imagination. And room number four is where an arrogant film actor (Quentin Tarantino) is holding a party. One of his guests makes a bet that he can get a Zippo lighter to light ten times in a row, with his finger at stake if he loses. Allison Anders directed the first segment, which also featured Madonna, Valeria Golino, and Lili Taylor. The second segment was directed by Alexandre Rockwell, husband of his frequent leading lady Jennifer Beals. Robert Rodriguez directed the third story, while the finale was directed by its star, Quentin Tarantino; the final segment also features Bruce Willis, who appeared unbilled.

If you're a movie lover, this is a definite must-see. Be warned, if you don't like Tarantino's films or movies about things that don't actually happen in real life, turn away NOW! This movie is all about what COULD happen...Completely original; 'Four Rooms' has 4 directors, an excellent cast and tons of shenanigans!!
A different role for Tim Roth. No bang, bang, shoot 'em up here. This movie is hysterical. Four rooms, four side splitting stories. I think Roth may be one of the funniest men alive. His walk, his face, his dialogue! Don't miss this one.
The worst movie I've ever seen, in fact I could stand to watch the hole thing..........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was really surprized because of the cast.........I thought it be really good. Too bad.
It's great, what else is there to say; it's a classic or should be. Jennifer Beals is hillarious and overall the cast is great.
Man oh man do i love this movie! It's perfect and it never gets old!
This movie is great, it never gets boring. If you want to laugh watch this.
This is a definite must buy or rent if you love Tarrentino. This film is ridiculously entertaining with Ted (Tim Roth) as the new bellboy at a beautiful luxury hotel he is not having a good time of it on New Year's Eve, his first night on the job. During the film Ted enters four hotel rooms each one even more hilarious then the next! Enjoy with a big bucket of buttery love and salty popcorn!!
Please do not waste your money on renting or buying this movie. The acting is forgettable. The plot is poor. This movie is supposed to be a comedy but it is void of comedy. I saw this movie for free and I wanted my money back.
4 stories, 4 directors, Tarantino's isn't necessarily the best, but the whole movie works. Combustible Edison does the quirky lounge soundtrack, which is worth it alone.
this movie is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!its funny in a weird yet addictive way so youll want to watch it over and over again.this is one of those movies that can never be forgotten!i recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor.
Excellent movie! A must see!
