A sweetheart of a movie, enough to make up for its clattering screenplay.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's high on charm and low on quality; the writing is pedestrian at best, the characters are paper-thin, and director Allan Moyle lets the music do the heavy lifting.
August 11, 2008
Insubstantial, predictable and often dull.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 11, 2008
A soundtrack in search of a movie, Empire Records is one teen-music effort that never finds a groove.
April 19, 2008
One of the hippest and most enjoyable movies of the 90s. This ROCKS!
| Original Score: 4/5

Overall, fatally ersatz but good natured at heart.
July 16, 2003
...things just move quickly from one person's conflicts to another, with little momentum or feeling of satisfaction.

Leaves you with the sensation of having chewed a piece of bubblegum until well after its flavour ran dry.

[Leaves the] impression of artificiality.

The Empire Strikes Out . . . lame Gen-X "comedy" that falls completely flat . . . Go rent CLERKS
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Empire Records is little more than a poor man's Clerks, but an entertaining one.

If the movie is a lost cause, it may at least showcase actors who have better things ahead of them.

It has a good soundtrack, lots of free-for-all dance scenes, and derision toward aging singers and capitalists. And you just can't get enough of that.
