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. The other option is to not mock the decade, but rather embrace it, tell a story that speaks to the setting but is accessible beyond it. It's harder to do, but Michael Dowse's Take Me Home Tonight seems to be aiming for the latter.
Relativity Media has released 11 new clips from 80s-set comedy that not only show off it's four leads, played by Topher Grace, Anna Farris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer, but also the stellar supporting cast as well. It's pretty hard to go wrong when you have the likes of Lucy Punch, Demetri Martin and Michael Ian Black providing some of the back-up power. Sadly you don't get to see any of Michael Biehn doing his thing here, but after showing up in the music video a couple weeks back he gets a pass.
Check out the clips below.
