It's New Years Eve at Mon Signor hotel and a hapless bellboy named Ted (Tim Roth) is in for the wildest night of his life. While delivering room service, Ted meets up with a series of outlandish eccentric guests - from a pair of pint-sized pranksters bent on destruction to a determined movie-star who makes Ted an outrageous offer he can't believe .. or refuse.
The main character in the four unconnected stories is a waiter played by Tim Roth. He tries to be funny by adopting a manner similar to Rowen Atkinson in Mr Bean. This requires a comic talent that Mr Roth does not have and in any case generally appeals to the younger viewers who would not be watching an 18 rated film. Why is it 18 rated? There is a scene of bare breasted women dancing round a pool and a dead women under a bed next to a hypodermic syringe. Madonna cannot act, (in my opinion she is a fair dancer but her singing is as bad as her acting), and Bruce Willis's part does not suit him and he plays it poorly. There is absolutely nothing to recommend this farce.
Quentin Tarantino masterminded this showcase for ascendant mid-90s filmmakers with stories tailored to each: Allison Anders' coven, led by Madonna, is desperately seeking semen in the name of women's rites; Robert Rodriguez's mafia brats blame everything on their bellboy babysitter; Antonio Banderas applies the ties in Rockwell's bondage short, while Tarantino recreates a classic Hollywood anecdote involving too much booze, a little finger and a large knife.Owing much to high-concept TV serials 'The Love Boat' and 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents', yet evoking golden-age ensemble films such as Grand Hotel, this ambitious film adds to the mystery and romance of the suite.
