Take Me Home Tonight Synopsis

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 Mattís 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 í80s.

Weekend Box Office: Rango Rocks, The 80s Don't Weekend Box Office: Rango Rocks, The 80s Don't
This weekend was a good one for cartoon chameleons, not so much for fans of the 80s. Computer animated Rango banked $38 million for an easy number one. While that's only a start against its $135 million budget, it's a far better turn out than that 80s movie enjoyed. Topher Grace's Take Me Home Tonight only managed to pull in $3.5 million officially giving it the lowest opening for a wide release film for the year so far. The debut was so weak, it didn't even make the top ten, opening at eleventh place just behind month-old Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

4 Reasons Critics Are Wrong And Take Me Home Tonight Is A Must See 4 Reasons Critics Are Wrong And Take Me Home Tonight Is A Must See
Take Me Home Tonight is, without question, one of the ten best comedies that will be released this year. It has heart, skillful camera work and more than a couple of big laughs, but thereís a good chance youíll see none of that because so many of my fellow critics have mistakenly decided itís terrible.

Watch The Stars Of Take Me Home Tonight Reminisce About The Making Of The Film Watch The Stars Of Take Me Home Tonight Reminisce About The Making Of The Film
In the time that I've been doing this job, one thing that I've learned is that movie making can be a lot of fun. With the right chemistry between those involved and a proper atmosphere, being on a set can be an absolute blast. Because everyone is having fun both on screen and off, this goes double for comedies, and certainly looks like it was in play during the making of Take Me Home Tonight.

Watch 11 Minutes Of Take Me Home Tonight Watch 11 Minutes Of Take Me Home Tonight
There are two distinct ways to make a period-set comedy. The first is to go broad, making fun of the smaller things that people liked in previous decades but seem ridiculous now. A perfect example of this kind of film is last year's Hot Tub Time Machine, which was chock full of gags about giant cell phones and big hair.
