Empire RecordsA funky little record shop provides the setting for this youthful comedy that centers on the workers there as they try to help poor. The manager who really wants to buy the place, recoups his losses after his well-meaning, but dim-bulbed employee Lucas steals his savings and loses it all in Atlantic City while trying to increase it twofold at the gaming tables. If they can not come up with the loot, the mega-chain Music City will buy it.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Empire Records"Ken Eisner VarietyAugust 11, 2008
A soundtrack in search of a movie, Empire Records is one teen-music effort that never finds a groove.Joe Levy Rolling StoneAugust 14, 2007
Lovably sloppy.Trevor Johnston Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Overall, fatally ersatz but good natured at heart.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
