An utterly lackluster production that most involved would be wise to keep out of their portfolios. The only director to come out of this mess looking good is Rodriguez.

Begins with two awful segments, which you'll want to fast-forward past to get to the third and fourth segments.

A ghastly train wreck of a movie, littered with the corpses of promising careers.

The results are mainly awful, and even Roth got saddled with a mannered part that he can't comfortably play.

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)

O episódio dirigido por Taratino, que funciona como uma grande preparação para uma excelente tirada final, é memorável. Pena que temos que assistir a uma hora de besteiras para chegar até ele.

They should have called this One Room and released it as a Rodriguez short.

The final tale is a real treat; too bad you have to wade through such awfulness just to get there.

Worth it for the Rodriguez' episode, but otherwise nothing much.

The less said about this career-denting fiasco, the better.

Even Tim Roth, an otherwise dependable actor, disappoints with overacting.

We all have fun goofing around with our friends -- it's just that when you're four hot-hot-hot directors, you can goof around with your friends and get Miramax to release it, with predictably unimpressive results.

The first two rooms are indeed pure crap, but the second half of the film, while not as good as the directors' separate films, makes for a funny enough comedy anyway.

As a whole, Four Rooms is only diverting, and pretty mindless, but at its best it's a lot of fun.

Four Rooms never lives up to the hype and should discourage the directors from working together again.

Four Rooms has to be one of 1995's major disappointments.

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.

Four Rooms asserts itself as a goof so laboriously and aggressively that you almost feel pinned back in your seat.

The segments are uniformly weak.
