Plot: This movie features the collaborative directorial efforts of four new filmmakers, each of whom directs a segment of this comedy. It's New Year's Eve at the Mon Signor Hotel, a former grand old Hollywood hotel, now fallen upon hard times. Often using physical comedy and sight gags, this movie chronicles the slapstick misadventures of Ted, the Bellhop. He's on his first night on the job, when he's asked to help out a coven of witches in the Honeymoon Suite. Things only get worse when he delivers ice to the wrong room and ends up in a domestic argument at a really bad time. Next, he foolishly agrees to watch a gangster's kids for him while he's away. Finally, he finishes off the night refereeing a ghastly wager. Runtime: 98 mins Release Date: 24 Dec 1995
I really don't understand why this film hasn't got a better rating. I mean, it's got everything: Women, cars, weapons, alcohol and Tarantino. It's just style itsself which made this film. Seriously, Tim Roth is so damn good in this film, his acting, his expressions and his behavior, all is perfect. You can have a good laugh about without even following the storyline which is worth doing that, but anyway . The film is profound and the and the different parts of it are linked. Great film.
Review (by dave-1507)
This is an excellent film... Looking at the credits the usual gang are all listed:- Tarantino, Rodriguez, Bender, Banderas, Roth....As the name might suggest after a brief intro the film is split into four stories each in a different room . The stories act independently of each other, although if you watch/listen carefully you should be able to spot how they interlink, for instance; a background phone call made during the misbehaver's . The character who moves between all the stories is played by Tim Roth; The Bellhop. Roth is working on New years eve in the hotel as the bellhop. <more>
Throughout the night for one reason or another Roth is called into each of the four rooms and so each story begins. If you are a fan of films which usually involve Tarantino, Rodriguez and Bender, or if you just like to see something refreshing and different once in a while then you will like this. If on the other hand you need great special effects, and actors who can't act, then you probably won't enjoy 'Four Rooms'The dialogue is pretty intelligent, and the acting is excellent, although perhaps not to everyone's taste. Tim Roths character seems to be a bit of a tribute to "The Bell Boy" which is mentioned in the film in true Tarantino style, who usually references other films in his own . Tim Roth is bang on as the Bellhop and I couldn't think of anyone better to play the role.The hardest part for me, was deciding which story I liked the best. The first was light hearted and hilarious. Admittedly I didn't enjoy the second story as much, it was a little slow. The style reminded me of the cut scene from Pulp Fiction with Esmeralda and Butch after the fight - it was interesting, good, but slowed the whole film down. The third story was much more attention grabbing and constantly had me cringing waiting for the worst to happen. The final story was witty, pretty fast moving, and when the purpose of Tarantino's bet is revealed you find yourself moving closer to the edge of your seat until the credits role.Favourite bits:- The cheeky dialogue in the first story The missing ingredient Roth telling the misbehaver's how his baby sitter used to make sure he stayed in bed with his eyes closed. Tarantino's bet and the final conclusion!
The Missing Ingredient is the highlight of the film (by jimmyplm)
I noticed looking over the list of comments about this movie that a lot of people were urging viewers to fast forward through the first 45 minutes of this movie. All I have to say is that those people are PRUDES and LACK A SENSE OF HUMOR. The first part of the film with Madonna as one of the witches is my absolute favorite part. It is full of wicked humor that I found wonderful. Don't hesitate to watch the flick. Madonna IS A GREAT ACTRESS no matter how much people like to cut her down. So what if some of her movies come off as cheesy---they are meant to. Give the first part of the <more>
movie a chance and don't be afraid to laugh, and please cut Madonna some slack.
Please note: Although it is not written in full story, some paragraphs may contain plot information that could be a spoiler."Four Rooms" is a 1995 anthology comedy film that follows Ted the Bellhop, the lone working employee, as he works New Years Eve at the Hotel Mon Signor in Los Angeles, interacting with several guests on four different rooms. The film contains four different segments, which are the rooms he visits. Each room is written and directed by a different filmmaker.Segment 1: The Honeymoon Suite - "The Missing Ingredient" Written and directed by Allison <more>
AndersTed assists several unusual women with their luggage up to the Honeymoon suite. He soon discovers that they are a coven of witches trying to reverse a spell that was placed on their goddess 40 years earlier. However, when they learn one of them is missing an ingredient needed to complete the spell, they convince Ted to help her out in retrieving the missing ingredient.---Room Review--- This is the weakest of the rooms. Although very well conceived and directed, it doesn't have that feeling the rest of the rooms do.7/10Segment 2: Room 404 - "The Wrong Man" Written and directed by Alexandre RockwellAfter a confusing phone call from a party in a room and unsure of which floor it's on, Ted arrives to room 404 where he finds himself in the middle of a fantasy hostage situation between a husband and wife. At gunpoint, Ted is forced to participate in the scenario, with uncertainty of what is real and what is part of the fantasy.---Room Review--- Of the four segments, this is the second best one. The entire concept, story, directing, acting and comedy is stellar and all around shows how a great story can be told in a short time.9/10Segment 3: Room 309 - "The Misbehavers" Written and directed by Robert RodriguezA husband and wife pay Ted to babysit their son and daughter as they go out to a New Years party. The very stern father demands his children to not misbehave and Ted to make sure they are well taken care of. Ted, alone in the hotel, cannot stay in the room so he orders them to stay in the room and watch TV. After Ted leaves, the children begin to explore and vandalize the room. After Ted arrives back after a few more times the events of "The Wrong Man" take place during this room , the room is in total and complete chaos, which ends in a hilarious tone as the man and wife return.---Room Review--- The best of the rooms. Rodriguez cleverly put much thought and effort into this room using all of the actors skills, especially Tim Roth and made the entire film worth it.10/10Segment 4: The Penthouse - "The Man from Hollywood" Written and directed by Quentin TarantinoAfter a famous director request several items, Ted brings them to the room and is soon acquainted with the party. Ted is asked to take part in a challenge that comes directly put of an episode of 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'. Ted. Initially declines, but is offered a guarantee $100 just to listen to the request and an additional $1000 if he accepts.---Room Review--- The third best, or second "worst," depending on how you think of it. The room, of course, has the Tarantino formula of characters that never stop talking. Of course, the concept is nowhere near as original or as far fetched as the others but is still a very stellar segment. They even mention the very episode of 'Hitchcock' they use in the conversation. The ending is perfect, however for Ted to end his otherwise very odd and terrible night.8/10
One of the most re-watchable movies in my DVD collection. Tim Roth's performance is priceless. The conversation between Ted the bellboy and Betty is classic. QT's room also contains some memorable bits of dialogue.On another note, this is my first post to IMDb and I'm pretty disappointed by the draconian censorship methods which they employ. Originally, this post contained a quote from the aforementioned conversation between Betty and Ted. Apparently, IMDb denies the use of any language besides English. The last two words of Ted's rant are the Spanish translation of "good <more>
night," which the IMDBot forbids me from quoting. Because the alteration of this quotation violates US copyright laws, I must omit the text in its entirety. This Catch-22 comes dangerously close to compromising my first amendment rights. While I understand that IMDb is a private organization, this experience has only furthered my belief that US copyright law is in desperate need of reform.
Greetings from Lithuania.So i did watched "Four Rooms" 1995 many years ago and what i do remember that it was hilariously funny movie. Tim Roth was just amazing in here, he kinda glues the whole segments. The story itself is set in one hotel, and there are separate stories, which i really liked them all. Acting was pretty good for this material, with like i said exception of Tim Roth - he was great in here. Writing and directing was a bit uneven at the times, but it worked really well into one hilariously "don't take it to seriously and enjoy it for what it is" fun <more>
movie.Overall, "Four Rooms" isn't going to be remembered for its writing or directing or acting, but it could be remembered for its fun - it doesn't take itself seriously nor shouldn't you - just relax and enjoy the ride, it is a hilarious one.
It's a pity that the critics gave 'Four Rooms' as hard a time as they did back in 1995, because, for everything that can be said to be wrong with it, it really does sparkle with creativity and a desire to stand out from the rest of the crowd. And let's face it, there was enough popular talent involved, including Alison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez and, last but not least, Quentin Tarantino, for it to have been hailed as an instant cult classic. Instead, it was bashed into submission and retreated very quickly to the back of nearly everyone's resume. With <more>
retrospect most of this reproach was probably ill-deserved - 'Four Rooms' does have its blatant moments of weakness, but then again so do a lot of the more half-baked cookie-cutter comedies which have somehow garnered more admiration than this. On the whole it's a very unusual and interesting combination - an offbeat, frisky and strangely feel-good comedy with some sinister undertones and lots of weird, intricate little details. Consisting of four 20-minute segments, each assembled by a different director's hands, it takes us through the various happenings inside separate rooms of the same hotel on New Year's Eve, as experienced by Ted, the only bellhop still left standing for the night shift. There is the slight feeling of inconsistency in moving from one directing style to the next, and a couple of attempts to interconnect the segments are a little self-contradictory. Some of it works and some it doesn't, but the end result is an episodic anthology that, if nothing too spectacular, still proves itself to be very likable in the long run.'The Missing Ingredient' and 'the Wrong Man' are often credited with constituting the weaker half of the film, and I can't really say I disagree. 'The Missing Ingredient' tries hard to be risqué, but falls pretty short - for a story concerning a coven of bare-breasted witches trying to extract an unwilling man's semen for use in a ritual, it's remarkably innocuous and fluffy, and the visual effects only add a layer of tackiness to boot. 'The Wrong Man' is a tad more snappy and sports some stylish direction the shot where Sigfried grabs the ringing telephone is right-on , but is ultimately swallowed up in its frenzied editing. We can vaguely understand what's happening in this segment if not, then Ted does drop a pretty big hint later on in the film , but it makes itself unnecessarily incoherent, with bizarre imagery that adds nothing but extra confusion the baby flashback, anyone? . It's almost as though Alexandre Rockwell isn't sure whether he wants us to be in on the whole set-up with Sigfried and Angela, or confused and in the dark like Ted, and in the end tries to accommodate both perspectives, which doesn't really wash.It's once we reach the second half that the true quality really starts to seep its way in, and the film suddenly becomes very rewarding. 'The Misbehaviours' is a spirited little contribution that combines a moderate dose of macabre darkness with its cartoon-like innocence. Antonio Banderas certainly hits a good spot as the no-nonsense father who appoints Ted to keep an eye on his two young children while he's out, whilst the children themselves are rebellious but not irritating, all making for a surprisingly sharp and sophisticated slice of knockabout. 'The Man from Hollywood', meanwhile, is equally brilliant - Tarantino's vibrant, well-scripted take on Roald Dahl's chilling short story, 'the Man from the South', which pits Ted in the same room as cocky Hollywood director Chester Rush and it's always a treat to see Quentin himself tackle such a winking, self-depreciating role . It manages to be tense and enjoyable, with the usual smart direction that any Tarantino fan should be able to appreciate. Overall, there's enough vitality in these particular segments to just about redeem the shakiness of the first half.Besides, we have Tim Roth playing our hapless protagonist throughout, and, yes, that is a lot. He proves himself to be very capable in a comic performance, bringing enough gentle magnetism to his character Ted the bellhop, through his good intentions, perseverance and various neurotic mannerisms, to get us genuinely attached to him. It is hard not to come away with the impression that all four directors had a slightly different take on Ted's disposition - he goes from being timid and impressionable to obtuse and jumpy, then highly-strung and a little devious, and finally composed and relatively rational - but Roth does well in single-handedly bridging these gaps and, with the many mishaps his character has to endure over the course of the night, ensures that all changes in temper seem understandable. He retains his good-natured lovability for the entire running time, and, for anyone who can really relate to poor Ted like yours truly , he'll have you rooting for him to the very satisfying end.To my knowledge, there was never any other film quite like 'Four Rooms' and, judging by just how unwelcome this one was made to feel when it arrived, there probably won't be another for quite some time. It remains an ambitious and not entirely successful little sleeper, but has a good deal going for it nonetheless, and I urge all fans of Tarantino, Rodriguez and Roth in particular not to be put off by the bad press and to give it a chance. Who knows? One day, it might just make a fresh start and find the cult audience that appreciates it yet.
it's not Pulp Fiction, but it's still good! (by ck-7)
I really don't understand why this movie got such bad reviews! Overall, this is a creative and refreshing movie. It is not Pulp Fiction but it is still a good performance. Tim Roth, especially, is the best thing in the film. Out of the four I like Robert Rodguize's misbehavior the best. The missing ingredient was indeed a bit cheesy but the rest are still above average performance. If you are interested in this movie but discouraged by the movie critics, I ensure you that you won't regret seeing it.
My rating: 8 (by kekca)
Quite different, with an unexpected story made up between four consecutive narratives. An incredible welcome of the new year with absolutely no predictable ending. Persons which appear on the screen surprise us one after another with their reputation and professionalism.Starting from the topic of the flesh immediately grabs our interest by asking us to assume more vulgar development. Then stuns with a familiar image in an atypical role and carries us into the world of children garnished with a dead hooker. And the end is even more unexpected, especially if you do not know anything about the <more>
movie. The action takes us to the top floor of the hotel room where we find him. This time, there is almost no blood, though the focus again is on death and pain.Maybe a little overstated but still I use it to make advertising of the place where I found out about it https://www.facebook.com/sofest?fref nf . I was impressed by the level of knowledge and headlines of movies that are shared there and decided to do an experiment whose result was quite successful. That is why I am moving on!
