Plot Summary
Joe (Anthony LaPaglia) runs Empire Records, an independent Delaware store that employs a tight-knit group of music-savvy youths. Hearing that the shop may be sold to a big chain, slacker employee Lucas (Rory Cochrane) bets a chunk of the store's money, hoping to get a big return. When this plan fails, Empire Records falls into serious trouble, and the various other clerks, including lovely Corey (Liv Tyler) and gloomy Deb (Robin Tunney), must deal with the problem, among many other issues.

  • Insubstantial, predictable and often dull, it's a dismaying move from director Allen Moyle, who displayed a real grasp of pulp energy in 1990's "Pump Up the Volume". show more

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

  • For all its faults, the good-natured, quirky humour that this for the most part offers ultimately makes it very hard to dislike. show more

In a genre overrun by tacky romantics movies, a film like 'Take Me Home Tonight' is wonderfully refreshing. Yes, it'll have some romance as Topher Grace's character bumps into his old high school...
