Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

This unbearable quartet of stories was written and directed by hot filmmakers Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction), Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi), Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging), and Alexandre Rockwell (In the Soup), which only proves that even the smart guys can really blow it sometimes. The anthology is linked by the hotel in which all the events are taking place, and by Tim Roth as a bellboy flitting from scene to scene. Nobody overcomes the insufferable air of self-congratulation that permeates this exercise in forced hipness. With Bruce Willis, Madonna, Lili Taylor, Ione Skye, Jennifer Beals, and Antonio Banderas. --Tom Keogh

This film is the very definition of 'patchy'. It comes across like the directors responsible were just filling in free time between their real movies - which is probably true. Only Rodriquez's piece has any real merit.

Tim Roth plays the bellboy who is the link between all the stories and subsequently the main character. I think someone should have slapped him and told him to sort his act out. I love Tim Roth usually but here he was just way too over-the-top. If he had exercised a little bit of restraint, the whole film could have been improved. Instead, his overly exaggerated mannerisms really began to test my patience.Starting with "The Missing Ingredient" by Allison Anders is peculiar to say the least. Now peculiar is a good thing in my book, but after promising to be amusing this just goes nowhere. It's just bizarre.

"The Wrong Man" by Alexandre Rockwell unfortunately doesn't have the essentials to sustain it's segment. I think this is the piece most affected by Roth's overtly comic acting. If he had played it straight, maybe, just maybe, this situation might have come out alright. But it lacked any of the requisite tension or nervous comedy required. Like the first story, it just comes out ridiculous.

"The Misbehaviors" from Robert Rodriquez is the real standout. If I didn't know better I would have guessed it was by the Coen brothers - which is a compliment to Rodriquez - there are obvious parallels to Barton Fink. The climax is a simply superb culmination of black comedy and stylish camerawork. Antonio Banderas is terrific as the father of the two little 'misbehaviors'.

"The Man from Hollywood," while better than the first two stories, is probably the most disappointing, only because it's from Quentin Tarantino who I expected more from.

2.0 out of 5 stars All in all, pretty lousy June 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Only the most die-hard Tim Roth fans will want to sit through this whole movie. Too bad the last two segments (I think they're the last two, anyway) are the only ones even remotely worth watching; that means you have to sit through the first two to get to them. Thank God for fast-forward!
The one with Madonna in it is about witches, and the only thing you can say about it is that it makes witches look like the most boring possible subject matter in the universe. Plus it stars Madonna. 'Nuff said.
Then there's one about a wife and her husband, with one of them tied to a chair or something. This one was so bad, I can't even remember anything else about it. And I only watched it three days ago! What does that tell you?
Thankfully, just when you're begging for someone to shut it off, along comes the third segment, a hilarious little film about two naughty children and the bellhop (Roth, who appears in each segment) who is bribed to keep an eye on them. When the source of the mysterious odor in the room is discovered, Roth's reaction almost justifies the whole movie's existence. I was still laughing hours later.
The last segment, by spoiled Hollywood wonderchild Quentin Tarantino, is okay. It has his trademark crackling dialogue (of course), and Q.T. has some fun with his own image. But too bad the entire segment itself is just one long, sick, unfunny joke.
Making this movie was not a very good idea, and the results were predictably foul. Even the always-enjoyable Roth seems out of place and you kind of feel sorry for him. But at least the "Misbehavers" segment, all by itself, redeems the experience. Almost.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Masterpiece but not bad Feb. 14 2004
Format:DVD
I have heard many good things from my friends about this film and how Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez team up once again in a film. I tried to rent it but a certain store that i will refer to as "LackLuster" does not carry this film. I'm sitting at home one night and theres the movie "Four Rooms" on Starz so i decide to watch it. First film: Tim Roth stumbles into a room of witches and stuff happens its entertaining. Second film: Tim Roth gets the wrong room and the story contains sick sexual fantasies, a large gun, and a psychotic pill popping maniac, need i say more? Third film: (by far my favorite) Robert Rodriguez directed this hilarious short where Tim Roth has to take care of these kids....its HILARIOUS i can't say much about it or it will ruin it for you. And Fianly the Fourth Room: Directed by Quentin Tarantino this final room is a let down. Tarantino himself acted in it which is my biggest complaint. He over-acts and ruins it. You think a man who shows up drunk on late night talk shows would be a good at acting drunk but he's not. This move was sub-par compared to other films quentin tarantino has been involved with but much better than most films. If you are a huge Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez fan like myself than you should buy this film now. If not than i suggest you rent it or catch it on cable.

5.0 out of 5 stars What the Heck is This??? Jan. 4 2004
Format:DVD
What the heck is this?
That was my first question when my erstwhile sidekick and chum brought this movie into our home as a rental. I had never heard of this flick. Neither had my wife. In fact, he had rented it on the strength of a recommendation of a friend. So, with no expectations or preconceptions to color our views, we set about to watch this thing.
One great advantage to having no particular expectation of an unknown film is that our ignorance led to bliss. Before the end of the film, we were literally roaring with laughter. Not mere chortles, mind you, nor the odd guffaw that may accompany an isolated humorous incident, but laughing at scene after scene as the movie progressed.
This is an episodic comedy that has Tim Roth as a bellman at a Hollywood hotel working alone on New Years Eve. He becomes involved in 4 different sketches. Each one just a wee-bit more madcap than the last. From being seduced by a Coven of Witches in the first sketch, to a bizarre couple who play dangerous games in the second, to misbehaving children in the 3rd, to an unexpected and hilarious ending in the 4th, one simply never knows what is coming next. Nothing is predictable, and along the way, our hero (or antihero) encounters a splendidly malevolent Antonio Banderas, quirky Quentin Tarantino, and a surprising appearance by Bruce Willis.
There is much to be said for this film, but I would not wish to spoil things by giving too much away. I believe the best way to see this film is as we did. Just get it, watch it, and let it impress itself upon you in all its bizarre glory.
Very few films made today are as funny, or as quirky, or offbeat, or simply hilarioius as this film. My wife has a sister in the hotel/hospitality business, and we plan to present this one to her as a gift. They have seen strange things in the hotel business, and so will you when you watch this film. Great Stuff!!!
