I also liked the second one. Along with TarantionoÃ‚Â´s episode (thatÃ‚Â´s the best, imho), it provides the funniest and most abstruse situation. RodriguezÃ‚Â´ part is very good, too, but in a way a lot more conventional than the rest.
But I have to agree with you, the first segment is poor. It could have been better, but actually it is far too much over-the-top and most of the time itÃ‚Â´s neither witty nor entertaining. Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
Altogehther, "Four Rooms" has become more important to me at silvester than "Dinner For One" .
