Twenty-four hours in the lives of the young employees at Empire Records when they all grow up and become young adults thanks to each other and the manager. They all face the store joining a chain store with strict rules.
A day in the life of the employees of Empire Records. Except this is a day where everything comes to a head for a number of them facing personal crises - can they pull through together? And more importantly, can they keep their record store independent and not swallowed up by corporate greed?Written by
In one of the deleted scenes, the makeshift rooftop band is arrested and taken away. This was based on the real-life incident of The Beatles playing on top of the Apple Records building and being stopped by the police. See more »
In the very first shot of the movie, we see all of the band's equipment already set up on the roof, even though later they are seen hauling it all up there before the big midnight show. See more »
No visible tattoos.
No revealing clothing.
We're both screwed. At least you're used to it.

This movie follows the stories of many people who work at Empire Records, a music store on the brink of closing. All the characters are memorable, even the boy who steals a CD and is caught and hit by the door of a car. The drama, comedy, and music work well together all around.
Liv Tyler really impressed me in her role. She was very convincing as an intelligent young lady on her way to Harvard. All the actors were great in their roles and I can't imagine anyone else taking their places. And the soundtrack is AWESOME!!!!! :) All-in-all a cute film that you can watch again and again.
