Critic Reviews

  • The results are mainly awful, and even Roth got saddled with a mannered part that he can't comfortably play. More...
  • 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) More...
  • They should have called this One Room and released it as a Rodriguez short. More...
  • The less said about this career-denting fiasco, the better. More...
  • Sounds better than it is. More...
  • 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. More...
  • 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. More...
  • Four Rooms asserts itself as a goof so laboriously and aggressively that you almost feel pinned back in your seat. More...
  • 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. More...
  • The segments are uniformly weak. More...

  • Okay, so fast forward through the first two rooms and this is a decent little short by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

  • The first room was one bag full of crap. That room alone deserves 1 star. The next room is better but it's still no slobberknocker. Then we bring in...
  • This is a fun movie with 4 interesting stories with 4 directors bring fresh ideas to film making! Fun, fun, fun!
  • The concept of this film is quirky and works well with the short stories, however it does start off a little too quirky for me and found myself...
