Summary: In the 80's, in Los Angeles, the video store clerk Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) is graduated in MIT but is kind of lost and does not know what he wants to be for the great deception of his father, the police officer Bill Franklin (Michael Biehn), who has invested one quarter of his savings to pay...
In the 80's it probably wouldn't have been much of a standout but it could have been a mildly loved looked over gem (much like it is now)!

Summary: 'TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five) This 80's movie homage actually is just that: a tribute to the youth films of the 80's and it does a pretty good job. It actually feels like a film from that decade (like something John Hughes might have produced) and not just a send-up or...
Summary: I really enjoyed this movie. First Im a huge fan of Topher Grace since That 70s Show and In Good Company. (BTW In Good Company). He gives an excellent performance and along with the rest of the quality cast, the acting is just incredible.
Summary: 3 grads from 1984. The best friend, Barry Nathan (Dan Fogler) is a car salesman straight out of high school. The twins, Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) and Wendy Franklin (Anna Faris). Matt is a graduate from MIT and the best employee at Suncoast Video.
Summary: This movie started out slowly, but about 20 minutes in really started to kick off. To start, 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 is like reliving your favorite 80s film

Summary: If you didn't know any better, you'd actually think you were watching an 80s movie with Take Me Home Tonight. While not delivering the strong emotional depth of a John Hughes film, it still possesses the same qualities in its zany humor, incredible retro soundtrack and at its heart as Matt Franklin...
Summary: Take Me Home Tonight was much better then I thought it was going to be, now don't get me wrong, from seeing the trailers I wanted to see this film and was excited to. The film itself has much the same feel as Superbad, two friends on an epic one night quest and one focusing on "the girl".
Summary: A classic tale of unrequited love and a second shot at that love ala John Hughes complete with a hero that lies to get his foot in the door then has to make a complete jackass of himself after being honest blows up in his face, a goofy misguided sidekick, and a fantastic 80's soundtrack.
Summary: There was an attempt to follow up That 70s Show with a disastrous and thankfully short lived That 80s Show. This should have been it. Fast Times at Ridgemont High is the first name that comes to mind when one thinks of the 80s movies about kids in high school/college.
Summary: I saw this at a screening today and I enjoyed the movie. I thought that all the leads did a good job, especially Topher Grace and Teresa Palmer. They had some good chemistry, and Topher does a good job of playing an uncomfortable guy at times in the movie...
