Take Me Home Tonight

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) wasn’t popular in school, but he still remembers his close encounter with the hottest girl in town. While their “seven minutes in heaven” was awkward and no kissing was involved, she lied and helped him avoid more abuse.

Take Me Home Tonight

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: As someone who not only remembers the films of the 80’s, but was in the audiences of many of them, I find it somewhat odd to see “retro” films of this decade gone by. I do also find it a bit odd that an entire decade can so aptly summed up by a few things.

Take Me Home Tonight Review

19 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Take a bunch of second tier Hollywood comedic talents, delay it due to the drug use reported on set, add in a cliché riddled script, and you have Take Me Home . The latest bit of ’80sploitation has the simple goal of recreating American Graffiti , teens stuck in a life crisis, seeking some love, and...

Take Me Home Tonight (2011)

blu-ray.com
19 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Think of Take Me Home Tonight as Superbad set in the 1980s and that'll get you halfway to an understanding of what the film is like. It's not a great comedy, and doesn't really need to exist, but I have a feeling if it didn't get shelved for four years—while Hot Tub Time Machine beat it to the...

18 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The Film The writers of That '70s Show took star Topher Grace out of one decade and put him into Take Me Home Tonight , a comedy that relies on retro to entertain the audience. Set in the summer of 1988, Matt Franklin (Grace) finds himself with an MIT degree and a full-time job at Suncoast Video.

Take Me Home Tonight

High-Def Digest
18 July 2011
  • Conclusion: I really wanted to like 'Take Me Home Tonight,' but in the end it tries way too hard to be liked. It wants to ride the coattails of movies past, without creating an identity of its own.

Take Me Home Tonight Movie Review

BigPictureBigSound
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Topher Grace carries this formulaic coming-of-age comedy that's far more precious with its '80s premise than the story itself.

Take Me Home Tonight

Cinema Blend
4 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Take Me Home Tonight is a movie set in the 80s that isn’t really about the 80s. Watch most of the modern Hollywood movies made about the decade and you’ll assume it was a non-stop cavalcade of leg warmers, Tab, and Ronald Reagan. The approach here is more realistic.

Take Me Home Tonight

DVD Talk
3 March 2011
  • Excerpt: "Take Me Home Tonight" has endured a bumpy ride on its way to theatrical distribution. Shot nearly four years ago, this comedy has been shoved around the release schedule, handled gingerly by studios that didn't exactly know what to do with a comedy aimed at twentysomethings about the 1980s.

Take Me Home Tonight

AV Club
3 March 2011
  • Excerpt: From the opening image of a boombox playing “Video Killed The Radio Star,” it’s apparent that Take Me Home Tonight —a comedy about the ’80s that’s been sitting on the shelf so long, it’s practically a product of the period it chronicles—is more interested in cheap nostalgia than in subverting...
