And more importantly, can they keep their record store independent and not swallowed up by corporate greed? Written by
The movie was originally filmed as two days but was cut and fit to one. See more »
When Lucas walks up to the craps table the stick man says, "Craps, end of roll, new roller," but a 3 was the last roll. The shooter's turn would only end if he/she had rolled a 7 after the point was established. A shooter's turn would never end on a rolled 3. See more »

This movie is awesome. The best thing is the music. Excellent. It's the greatest collection of songs put into a movie. Even better than Pulp Fiction. There should be a BEST COMPILATION Oscar given to a music supervisor. That's hard but in this kick-ass movie, it seems so effortless. The acting is also top-notch. Renee Zellweger, Liv Tyler, Anthony LaPaglia, Robin Tunney, Johnny Whitworth, Max Caulfield, Debi Mazur, and Rory Cochrane, one of the coolest people alive. The script is really good. Directing, also good. Everything was pretty invisible, and I absolutely mean that in a positive way. Just like in the old days, when it was invisible, they put you in the movie. I felt like I was with these characters the whole way. The new "Remix! Special Fan Edition" is probably better. I can't decide. They're both superb.
