Synopsis


Take Me Home Tonight
A floundering MIT graduate sends out the '80s with a bang after being invited to an end-of-summer bash by his former high school crush in this nostalgia-flavored comedy starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, and Dan Fogler. Matt Franklin (Grace) has just graduated from MIT, but he's content to spend his days stacking the shelves of his local Suncoast Video instead of going to work for a Fortune 500 company. Meanwhile, his sarcastic twin sister, Wendy (Faris), knows he can do better, and his best friend, Barry (Fogler), has a wild streak the size of the Mississippi River. When Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer) happens into the video store one day and strikes up a conversation with Matt, he compulsively lies about having a job at Goldman Sachs. Incredibly, Matt and Tori hit it off, and she invites him to join her for a massive summer blowout. The opportunity of a lifetime finally within reach, Matt arrives at the party in style, intent on sweeping Tori off her feet. Later, somewhere between the stolen car and the epic dance-off, Matt, Tori, Wendy, and Barry realize that this is the night they will still be thinking about when they're old and gray, and the neon-drenched '80s are just a distant memory. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    If you love and miss the 80's you'll love this movie. The plot was way better than what the commercials revealed, and it was just a feel good fun movie. Although it wasn't non stop laughter through the whole movie, it was great humor and the right times. Take Me Home Tonight went back to just being a simple good comedy that never went over the top. Topher Grace does an awesome job, and Dan Fogler is absolutely hilarious in it.

    I liked it. i never was a big fan of topher but he totally redeemed himself with this movie. over all i had a good time at the movie's and like i said if you like the 80's this is a good throwback and a good good time. o and dont look for some big plot he's just trying to hook up with his highschool crush and then the shenanigans start.

    I was expecting something good from this movie and it just didn't do anything for me. The best part of the movie was the 80's music. After about 30 minutes I turned it off. I might have laughed once. Guy runs into his high school crush before "reunion" party and makes up lie to make him look better than working at a video store after going to M.I.T. It has funny actors but not funny at all in this movie.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Topher Grace plays a character similar to Eric of the Seventies show about a guy who graduates from MIT but ends up working in a Suncoast store but who randomly meets up again with his high school crush and is inspired by her to make something better of himself. It's full of sophomoric humour but hey sometimes you just want the bad stuff because it' sooo gooood and darn funnny.

    I'm always down to watch a movie set in the eighties. Love this movie! If you are a fan of the 80's this is a must watch. I don't think this movie got much notoriety, but it is very funny with an underrated cast. Dan Fogler is hilarious! M. Check it out if you are looking for something you haven't seen and need a good laugh.

    I had never heard of this movie, but just saw it. I actually really enjoyed it and found it pretty funny. Acting was good and there was some good comedy. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a funny movie with some good 80s music. Plot is okay, but overall an enjoyable flick.

    I saw this movie first on Netflix, and after watching it for the first time wanted to add it to my collection of movies. If you don't mind crude humor and language, this is one of my favorite romantic comedies.

    I really got some good laughs and I really enjoyed the songs in the movie as I am a huge 80's fan. The story was good but could have been better with some better actors.
