Take Me Home Tonight Blu-Ray Review



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 clim 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 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.

Review: Take Me Home Tonight is one of the first leading man roles for Topher Grace since he left 'That 70s Show' years ago.  He has appeared here and there, but overall he's been under the radar.  This film is a hark back to a more innocent time when movies were just absolutely fun and insane.  It reminds me of some of the films from the 1980s and for that, we love Take Me Home Tonight.  The plot is cliche, the ending is predictable, but its a great ride.

The special features include: Deleted Scenes, Cast Get Together, Music Boombox, Take Me Home Tonight Music Video, Theatrical Trailer, TV Spots.
