Becky and I went to see Take Me Home Tonight last night at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The MovieFone website at Take Me Home Tonight describes the movie as follows:
“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…”
Take Me Home Tonight is another comedy that looked like it could be pretty good from the Previews, however that was not the case. They showed almost all of the funny parts of the film in the Previews and they really were not that funny. The acting was pretty good, couple of the characters were interesting and the majority were totally ridiculous. The story itself was really lame about a guy who wants a girl from High School and for some reason after going to MIT has put his life on hold because he doesn’t know what he wants to do, except get the girl he had in High School who doesn’t know he exists.
Why this film had to take place in the 80’s we do not know? It didn’t make a great deal of sense, it was not very funny and was “strange” at best. They probably should have just made a movie about the boy wanting the girl and falling in love and kept all the other nonsense out of it. It tried to be a romantic comedy and failed at both. I would have to say this film is a rental at best. Becky really didn’t like it at all.
