As the summer of 1988 winds down, three friends on the verge of adulthood attend an out-of-control party in celebration of their last night of unbridled youth. Starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer, Take Me Home Tonight is a raunchy, romantic and ultimately touching blast from the past set to an awesome soundtrack of timeless rock and hip-hop hits.

Recent MIT grad Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) should be working for a Fortune 500 company and starting his upward climb to full-fledged yuppie-hood. Instead, the directionless 23-year-old confounds family and friends by taking a part-time job behind the counter of a video store at the Sherman Oaks Galleria.

But Matt's silent protest against maturity comes to a screeching halt once his unrequited high school crush, Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer), walks into the store. When she invites him to an epic, end-of-summer party, Matt thinks he finally might have a chance with the girl of his dreams. With his cynical twin sister Wendy (Anna Faris) and best friend Barry (Dan Fogler), Matt embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime evening. From stealing a car to a marriage proposal to an indescribable, no-holds-barred dance-off, these friends share experiences that will change the course of their lives on one unforgettable night in the Go-Go '80s.

Take Me Home Tonight was released March 4th, 2011.

        Not a bad cast, but I'm not sure how I feel about another 80's Show . . . err . . . movie :P

          ROFL @incmob... exactly what i was thinking!!!

          i was stoked about this when i read the synopsis - classic 80's movie plotline (even though the poster doesn't look 80's at all - looks like a bad spoof movie about clubbing, not the 80's), but that trailer was awful. did they really rock "straight outta compton" by NWA??? that song wasn't released until late 1988 and even then it didn't gain much notoriety until 1989 b/c no one would play it on radio stations and there were not mass sharing venues (ala Facebook and twitter) then. i digress...

          this looks like it had potential, but they should have taken 1980's notes from, oh i don't know, actual 1980's movies! or even Hot Tub Time Machine which at least got the era right!

                so was this written by someone in their early 20's, directed by an 18 year old, and starring 20 something year olds, that have no clue of what 1988 was like... i guess if you have a soundtrack of songs set in that era (oh yeah... take me home tonight was a hit from...1986 and not many were listening to it by 88 btw) you can have a movie set in that era. I agree @TheCourtNessMonster that i could not see one person in that trailer with 80's hair. count me out on this one.

                  Um, not sure.


                  • moviegeek • 5 years ago

                    ...No clue what I just watched. Was it supposed to be funny? Touching? Satire? I'm confused :P


                    • chickflick • 5 years ago

                      it looks ok, but why would you have a movie set in 1988 and not want every prop and style to emanate that period? The bathroom...with the mini backsplash tiles? That wasn't even invented until like 5 years ago. The hair is too sleek. Again, 80's was perms. Not silky sleek. Get with it.

                        Where the hell did all theses spammers come from. First IGN, and now Movieweb. They keep hitting all the major websites. Anyway back on topic, the movie looks pretty decent.

                          Yeah, I like it.

                            Poster looks like the one in "hairspray"
