Empire RecordsDirector: Allan Moyle,
A funky little record shop provides the setting for this youthful comedy that centers on the workers there as they try to help poor Joe Anthony LaPaglia), the manager who really wants to buy the place, recoup his losses after his well-meaning, but dim-bulbed employee Lucas (Rory Cochrane ) steals his savings and loses it all in Atlantic City while trying to increase it twofold at the gaming tables. If they cannot come up with the loot, the mega-chain Music City will buy it.

For those of you who loved the theater version, watch out!!! This DVD contains the deleted scenes added back in for some reason and, let's just say, there's a reason they were deleted in the first place!! The added scenes break up the flow of the flick and really take away from the quality. I haven't found a copy of the original but, if it's out there, I'd track it down if I were you. The movie rocks. The remix stinks.
This is the most amazing, true to life and well acted film I've seen in a long time. Liv Tyler is great and fits her role like a glove........Antony LaPaglia is great and the cast are just brill.........One you should definatly see, the altimate teen movie.
A film everyone has seen and should own.
This is my favorite movie of all time, even more than Casablanca. This is my Gen-X looser bedtime story! I wanted to work there so bad, still do. The music is awesome, the characters are a lot like the best friends that I had around that time. Hell, I wore out my original VHS copy of this movie back about the turn of the century, I still have it in a closet somewhere! I try and see this movie whenever it is on cable/sat. In other words I LOVE this movie, most everyone I know, even a Baby Boomer or two love this movie. I recommend this movie, even though I do sound a little psychotic about it. If you like 90's music from Grunge to pre-Spears this is a good one for you. Don't forget the soundtrack, I know more who own the soundtrack than the movie.
I Absolutley enjoyed this movie, me and my friends will joke about it for hours at a time. It helps to show that not everyone's perfect. No one REALLY has it all together!
this is my new favorite movie...it is sooo good...and some parts are fuuny...which makes it better...this is honestly one of the best movies i have ever seen in my entire life...
This movie is great. It is very entertaining and has a good storyline. Highly recommended! It also includes an excellent cameo appearance by the [musical?] group GWAR. (I'm a huge fan) Definitely worth your while!
I think it is an excellent movie, however Liv Tyler gets so annoying. I usually Fast forward through her scenes or just skip to the next chapter.
I thought this movie was great, I've seen it at least 30 times. I've always wanted to own my own record store just like the Empire.
I absolutely love this movie. I have the vhs, and both dvd's. I watch it al least two times a week. It helps me if I'm having a bad day, or if i can't sleep, I just pop it in. I make all my friends watch it at least once. Everyone should see this movie. And the Soundtrack is awesome!
i loved this movie. i thought it was excellent. the plot was spectacular and the character were unbeatable. i must see movie
This movie just rocks, it has good looking actors and really cool music. I have the soundtrack on cd. A few days ago in the supermarket I heard one of the songs playing over the intercom. I had to ignore my friend and start singing :-P
This movie is a really good movie and is not like those stupid teen movies we have coming out today(except for pledge of allegiance)
This movie is fabulous!!!! If you thing you have a favorite movie well you havnt see this movie.
I recently watched Empire Records for the first time and it has become my favorite movie. I've seen it at least 6 more times, if not more, and I recommend it to everyone. It's really a movie most people haven't heard of, but almost everyone who watches it falls in love with it. I recommend the original version instead of the special fan edition, but both are amazing. Enjoy Empire! (damn the man-save the empire!)
This is a fantastic movie and fun to watch over and over. Just like Rocky Horror, this will be a cult classic. It's got everything, sex,drugs and lots of rock and roll !
I first saw this movie many, many years ago when I just stumbled upon it. I am an enormous fan of this movie and absolutely love watching it every time. It is funny to me that it is still not a well-known movie, but it is classic. I have made almost all of my friends watch it and every single one said they loved it! In fact many of them bought it too. If you haven't seen this movie before, you are truly missing out!
man ive loved this movie since i was like 12 this movie rocks. DAMN THE MAN SAVE THE EMPIRE!
Me and my buddies Leah and Jacki love this movie.We watch it at least once a week. I've seen it 50 times and I still laugh at everything. It will always be my favorite movie.
Everyone has to at least see this movie once! It combines everyone's lifestyle into one film. I loved it because I could relate to the charaters on so many levels. If there's one movie to see, see this one!
This is one of those movies that you can watch a million times and never get tired of. I can relate each character in the film to someone I know (I'm Corey). It's just a great light-hearted, feel good movie. Great music, the soundtrack is worth buying.
I love this movie. It is my favorite of all time. I love Mark and Aj and Lucas. Expesially Lucas, they are all so crazy. I even bought the sound track but was horrible upset when 'Say No More' wasn't on it. Watch this movie you'll love it.
this movie is the bomb. everyone should see this. everyone can relate to one character or an other... IT'S THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!
