Take Me Home Tonight is a much deeper, dramatic movie than most give it credit for. And it's also a hoot, too - largely thanks to Dan Fogler and the amusing cameo appearances.

Refreshingly, for a comedy of any decade, the characters are all likable, particularly Grace who gives his best performance since 2004's overlooked rom-com In Good Company.

This film succeeds (just barely) not by poking fun at the '80s but by embracing the charm of its endearing lead actors.

"Take Me Home Tonight" is not a bad movie. In fact, it's pretty good. It's just unnecessary.

The film isn't much, but for those of us who appreciate anything '80s, it's a perfectly painless nostalgia trip.

A film that succeeds (but just barely), not by poking fun at the decade of leg warmers, big hair, and even bigger cell phones, but rather by embracing the charm of its endearing lead actors.

It's not high art. It's not going to move you to save the world. But if you like films from that era, you'll be laughing your ass off.

The movie's carried by Topher Grace and Teresa Palmer who, in addition to being incredibly likable, seem to have real chemistry together.

It won't make anyone want to go back to the 80's, but it might make them want to see Grace's next film.

Dowse achieves a level of sincerity and comic bite that transcends the efficient but sometimes painfully obvious screenplay.

The movie is easily enjoyable, but it's also a mindless comedy with fewer laughs than one might expect after viewing the well-edited trailer.
