Four Rooms is a 1995 American anthology black comedy film co-written and co-directed by Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino, loosely based on the adult short fiction writings of Roald Dahl. The story is set in the fictional Hotel Mon Signor in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve. Tim Roth plays Ted, the bellhop and main character in the frame story, whose first night on the job consists of four very different encounters with various hotel guests. The film received negative reviews from critics who praised the segments directed by Rodriguez and Tarantino, but heavily criticized the segments by Anders and Rockwell.

James Berardinelli of ReelViews described it as “one of 1995’s major disappointments”. Hal Hinson of The Washington Post said it “asserts itself as a goof so laboriously and aggressively that you almost feel pinned back in your seat”. Roger Ebert of the Chicago-Sun Times ranked Rodriguez’s segment as the best by far, and also made best use of Roth. Tarantino’s segment was well-made but undistinguished while Anders was “disappointing” and Rockwell “unsuccessful”. The film won a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress for Madonna. The film holds a 13% “Rotten” rating from Rotten Tomatoes based on 45 reviews. The critical consensus reads: “Four Rooms comes stocked with a ton of talent on both sides of the camera, yet only manages to add up to a particularly uneven – and dismayingly uninspired – anthology effort.
