    This film was better than I was expecting based on the negative reviews of others. It was dumb in some ways, but not in others and it was acted well enough that it never felt dumb while I was watching it. I liked it.

    This is a romantic comedy that stars Topher Grace, Teresa Palmer, Dan Fogler, and Anna Faris. I do not understand why this movie was set in 1980’s because it could have been easily set in modern times and it would have not made any difference. The jokes in the film are not particulary funny or original in any way. The story is also old and has been used in many movies before this one, so why should people go and see this film? i can not answer that because I am still asking myself why I went and saw it. This film should have gone straight to DVD and it is meant to be seen only when you are very bored and have nothing better to do.

    Based in the late ‘80s, take me home tonight is a comedy film starring Topher Grace, Dan Fogler, and Anna Faris. All three of these actors are great on their own in their respective films, but coming together in this movie made me like them even more. Fogler and Grace play friends who don’t know what to do with themselves after college. They turn to drugs and alcohol to help them figure out what to do. The movie is set all in one night and is very fast paced. The movie really reminded me of Hot Tub Time Machine, which I thought was just ok. This movie really takes the ‘80s to the limit. They squeezed a lot of characterizations out of the ‘80s, including the corny music. This is just a great, light-hearted comedy.

    Take Me Home Tonight is a comedy starring former That ‘70s Show star Topher Grace. The movie is set in the late ‘80s and is set around a couple of post-college guys who are going through an existential crisis. The drug and alcohol fueled antics make the movie absolutely hilarious. One of my favorite parts of this movie is the music. All of it is from the ‘80s, which is one of the best eras for music. The chemistry between Grace and his costar is great. They seem like they would be friends in real life. Grace plays a romantic underdog in this film, which he does very well. His comedic chops are there as proved by the long run of That ‘70s show. The theme of the movie is trying to figure out what to do with one’s life after college, a theme that is absolutely timeless. Overall this is a great movie that I suggest everyone see.

    Another period comedy that does not work and I wish I did not waste me time and money on this film. The storyline has been used so many times before and the director of this film did not even try to make it fresh in any way. I thought I at least will enjoy the music because I love corny 80’s music, but this film failed me in that department as well. None of the characters in the film know what they want and the film does not give the audience a reason to care. I thought that the jokes were not funny and very far in between. In conclusion, do not see this film.

    What a terrible film this was. I feel like I have to warn others about this disaster and hopefully you will listen and stay away from this film. Topher Grace who plays the main character and he is also a producer of this film screwed up big time and , in my opinion, he should have left this film on the shelves or better yet he should have destroyed it. It is a shame because i actually really like Topher and i do think he is a talented young man. The film is so unoriginal and it is completely not funny. Dan Fogler was so unbelievably annoying in this film and every time he came on the screen I wanted to physically hurt him. Overall, this film is terrible and the characters in the film behave so dumb, i wish i have stayed home and saved my money.

    Take Me Home Tonight is a comedy film set in the late ‘80s starring Topher Grace from That ‘70s Show. I think it is funny that he was a star in a show about the ‘70s and now he is making a movie about the ‘80s. I really did enjoy this film and Topher did a great job in it. I totally believed his character was from the ‘80s. The movie did well in recreating the ‘80s from the hair to the clothes to the dialogue. The music was definitely my favorite part and I will be downloading all of the songs I heard in the movie. Grace’s costar was Dan Fogler, who is a comedian and has been in a ton of low-budget comedies over the years all of which I have loved. He was also very funny in this film. The movie was fast-paced and very funny and it was a joy seeing all of the ‘80s stuff brought back to life. I would definitely suggest this film and even might go see it again.

    Hey, look how huge that cell phone is! Whoa, it's a video store! Wow, pastel clothes! Ha, they're snorting coke! At this point, we get it. The 80's were a garish, overly selfish time with bad clothes and gigantic technology. Take Me Home Tonight is just another in a long line of comedies that think placing the action in that decade will make things more entertaining. News flash: it doesn't.
    Topher Grace continues his streak as "most promising That 70's Show cast member who squanders his talent" playing Matt Franklin, an MIT grad working at a video store. When he's invited to a party by his unrequited high school crush, he grabs his obnoxious friend for a night of drug fueled craziness. It's a pretty straight forward story: guy tries to get girl of his dreams. Just hang a bunch of neon on it and you've got Take Me Home Tonight.
    Maybe this movie would have been funny a few years ago. In fact, it WAS made a few years ago; four to be exact. It has that feel of a movie that's been on the shelf for a long time. The jokes fall flat, the direction smashes you over the head, and the performances (especially by the annoying Fogler) are over the top. It's just more proof that as funny as brick sized cell phones are, they don't make a movie.
