Take Me Home Tonight is a dramatic comedy set in the late 1980’s. Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) is a recent MIT graduate that has no idea where he’s going with his life. He quits his engineering job and works at Suncoast Video at the mall and has a crush on a girl from High School named Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer). To impress her he goes to a wild Labor Day party and lies that he works for a big financial firm. Things go from bad to worse and Matt and his twin sister Wendy (Anna Faris), and his best friend get in all kinds of trouble as he learns the hard way the lessons of real life and growing up.

This is not a great film, but it’s not terrible either. The soundtrack is classic 80’s rock, and is very good. Also the feel of the film is late 80’s so if you’re nostalgic for that period, you’re going to love it. There are some really funny moments, and the trouble they get into is really far out there. But all in all it’s a romantic comedy and a coming of age story, and though it didn’t relate to me in a big way, I enjoyed watching it. There is a lot going for it, especially if you have a connection to that time period, so just because I wasn’t blown away by it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a chance if you think you’d like it. It was written by the writers of “That 70’s Show” and so it has the same kind of feeling and humor that the show has. Not a bad movie, and well worth a rental.
