Four Rooms

One mad New Year's Eve, an overwhelmed bellboy (Tim Roth) copes with witches and diabolical children, gets caught in the middle of a sour relationship and settles a bloody bet for members of a superstar's entourage. Madonna, Antonio Banderas and Bruce Willis co-star in this uncommon comedy like no other that features four stories by a quartet of hot directors: Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

The results are mainly awful, and even Roth got saddled with a mannered part that he can't comfortably play.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader  full review
 
Four of the hottest indie directors--Anders, Rockwell, Tarantino, and Rodrigues--miss a unique opportunity to display their idiosyncratic talents resulting in a tedious anthology in which 2 segments are inept, one barely decent, and one OK (guess whose)
Emanuel Levy, Variety  full review
 
The less said about this career-denting fiasco, the better.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
 
Sounds better than it is.
Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Four Rooms asserts itself as a goof so laboriously and aggressively that you almost feel pinned back in your seat.
Hal Hinson, Washington Post  full review
 
The result is a batch of shrill, self-indulgent sketches that turn so wretched in spots you start to wonder if the filmmakers wanted them to be bad.
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
The segments are uniformly weak.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post  full review
 
Four Rooms has been cut substantially since a disastrous September reception at the Toronto Film Festival, though it's hard to imagine it running any longer.
Mike Clark, USA Today
 
The four segments are widely different in quality. On the useful scale of the Michelin guides, one is worth a trip, another is worth a detour, and the other two are a colossal waste of bandwidth.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
Four Rooms has to be one of 1995's major disappointments.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews  full review
