Overview

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.

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.

    more from this reviewer

    We'll call this one 'Quirky'...

    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!!

    it's great!

    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.

    A MUST WATCH HILARIOUS TARRENTINO CLASSIC

    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!!

    This movie sucks!!!!

    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.

    great film

    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.
