Movie Recommendation of the Week: Empire

This is one of the first times I’ll ever recommend a movie that I fully admit I don’t really like.  I mean if you flat out ask me if this is a good movie I’ll will 100% of the time tell you “no.”   And yet it’s one of those movies that I’ll leave on if there’s nothing else on TV.   Usually in those scenarios I leave on movies like Weird Science or Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  But Empire?  It’s not even good!  Yet I think you need to see it.

This is a typical John Leguizamo later in his career movie.   In fact I don’t even think this movie made it to the theaters.  Might have been made for HBO.   In short,  A successful South Bronx drug dealer (Leguizamo)  turns his back on his roots and gives money to a Wall Street broker to invest for him.

Unfortunately the broker isn’t exactly who he thought it would be.   Then, drama or should I say hilarity ensues.   The banker is played by Peter Sarsgaard and Denise Richards is in this film as well.   Like I said.  It’s really not good but it’s worth a watch.

A trailer  after the jump…..


The narration in this movie is so bad it’s amazing.
