the DVD really has nothing to offer but i'd say, its good for the price. i mean, its a very entertaining and funny film. the 4 sequences vary in quality but all in all, why not watch it...

amazon.com has it at 11 bucks. maybe you can order it cheaper (used!)

I watched that movie about a year ago with a couple of friends and me and one of my friends loved it, everyone else was like WTF was that?! Quentin's segement, "The Man From Hollywood", was the best by far, but the rest were pretty fuckin funny too! It's a pretty subjective movie I guess, but if you're a fan of QT's (and you must be, other wise you would be on here), you should like it!

Oh my god, you have to buy it! The first two sections aren't anything special and the first one is TERRIBLE, but the last two are laugh out loud worthy! Quentin makes up for his continuity failurse in other films by messing up the order of the rooms. The third segment actually happens before and during the second one, I know this because of the phone call that you hardly take notice of the first time.

Other little querks I found includes the Jack Rabbit Slim's logo through the curtains in The Man From Hollywood, also at the end when Quentin runs towards the lift he slips and mutters: 'Fuck' it's absolutely hilarious because it was a genuine mistake and because he does such long takes he didn't want to start it again! Also, Chester/Quentin is so clumsy in it: When he goes to open a new bottle of Cristal and takes a gulp out of it, it froths up all over him and goes everywhere and he smiles secretly, as does Tim Roth/Ted The Bellhop. The other clumsy mistake includes him knocking over a bottle of Jim Bean.

For anyone that has seen it what's up with the black guy calling Quentin funny looking, obviously Quentin wrote it and looked genuinely upset when he says it in the film, why why why???  ???
Ya sure? Cristal. It's the best. I never liked champagne
before I had Cristal, now I love it.

Very cool avatar, by the way, Johnny.

I'm pissed b/c I could only find this at Best Buy for about 11 bucks, and no one else had it or even heard of it. Then I found it at Virgin Megastore for like $15 so I felt smart having gotten it from Best Buy. But then a few weeks later I saw it at Wal Mart for like $7, and I cursed the Gods who've forsaken me.

I agree, everyone I know hates it and refuses to watch it with me

But I think its one of the best films and best experiments to come out of Hollywood

How great is Antonio Banderas?

Plus if there were no four rooms there would be no Spy Kids which The Misbehavers inspired!

Banderas kids are great :D The best part is when Sarah says to her brother that he should smell her feets !

i dont understand people that dont like this film, i really dont. I thought it was great. And even the Alison Anders segment at the start was bearable i thought, the Rockwell one was actually quite good i thought, but the best are obviously the Tarantino and Rodriguez ones!

I love the movie but the first 2 parts aren't that good. Quentin's and Robert Rodriguez's are the best.

It has its fun moments and Roth is actually pretty fucking good in it :P

I LOVE the ending...the part SPOILER!!!  where roth cuts and walks away in a few shots...very good built up to this and you'll find yourself laughing and rewinding it instantly :P

I still need to pick it up.

I found Tim Roth unbearable in it, though! ::)

The first room sucks.
Second is only good because Ritchie from the Sopranos (season two) is in there.
Third and Fourth are great.  And its Qt, so its like...YEAH

I JUST finished watching Four Rooms for the first time, and I must say...I didn't expect anything that I just finished watching.

The first room made me kind of sick. Not because of the story, but because I thought the entire movie was going to be like this. Not the case! In fact the movie keeps getting better and better.

I liked the second room. The shot when Tim Roth first steps into the bathroom is golden. I love the way the camera follows him through the room, into the bathroom, under the sink, and into the medicine cabinet. The story was a little wierd, but whaddya expect? David Proval was just as great as always.

The third room is where the movie was really pulling me in. Kudos to Robert Rodriguez for such a great story. Love the twist ending too! Fucking hilarious!

I did not expect the last of the movie to be the best part of the entire movie. And I certainly did not expect Tarantino to actually be playing the Man from Hollywood! Bruce Willis was teriffic and was only better being alongside Tarantino. Love the dialoge and loved the tension buildup towards the end with the lighter game. Fantastic!

Great movie! A movie that I will definitely be watching over and over and over again! And at $10 from Best Buy, best purchase I've made in a long time!

Oh! And did I mention that the entire scene of the fourth room is all done in one shot? Brilliant!
