Overview

Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Allsion Anders, and Alexandre Rockwell each directed a portion of Four Rooms. The disc offers a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are neither subtitles nor closed captions on this release. Despite the amount of talent that worked on this film, it failed to make much of an impression at the box office. Disney/Buena Vista has done nothing to help expose the film to more people, as they have not provided any supplemental materials of consequence. This disc is for fans of the film.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A pet project for its four directors -- all of whom were discovered and became friends at the 1992 Sundance Festival -- this vignette film is entertaining, albeit in a sick, darkly humorous way. Each vignette features a different helmer: Robert Rodriguez, Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, and Quentin Tarantino. Four Rooms has an overall down-the-rabbit-hole feel with the pedantic Tim Roth as the buffooning bellhop minstrel unifying the four stories. Anders' piece is mostly hogwash, replete with a halfhearted cameo from Madonna. Rockwell's entry is intense, thanks to a little help from a potty-mouthed Jennifer Beals. Rodriguez, on the other hand, takes a page out of Tales From the Crypt for a disgustingly ludicrous segment featuring Antonio Banderas. Tarantino's culminating piece -- an homage to Hitchcock's Rope -- is fraught with hysterical tension and a nicely mannered Bruce Willis. A slimy, sometimes hilarious slab of rambunctious cinema, Tarantino's bit even includes the director himself, as a high-falooting blowhard.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.
