Audience Reviews for Take Me Home
Not the best, but it certainly had it's appeal. The movie has a slower pace, but sometimes these are the best kinds as it allows us to focus more on the characters themselves.
This is a road movie about a broke evicted cab driver that drives a women with a troubled and crumbling marriage from New York City to San Diego. How do you think this story progresses? Yes, exactly like that. Story written using Road Movie Form A (RMF-A). Still, the movie works, and the right chemistry between the actors are there. They are husband and wife off-screen, so a nice little working vacation for them. Nothing complicated, no avant garde, just a plain story everyone will like. If you have itch for a road movie, this is it. You won't be disappointed.
Suffering from an emotional collapse caused by catching her husband cheating on her and news that her father just suffered a heart attack a continent away, Claire(Amber Jaeger) gets in a cab and tells the driver, Thom(Sam Jaeger, of "Eli Stone" & "Parenthood" who also wrote, directed and produced), a broke and just recently homeless photographer, to drive. The following morning, after she gets over the shock of them being near Pittsburgh, she negotiates a fee for him to drive her the rest of the way to San Diego. That works out well until she loses her purse. With a movie that starts off with as many cliches as "Take Me Home" does in the road movie department, it is kind of hard to overcome them. And then you have the giant lapses of logic like Claire's not wanting to fly even for her seriously ill father(although it is implied later that some reticence on her part might be understandable) and Thom's taking Claire's instruction to drive literally, in a straight line instead of around Central Park, then you have a seriously lost cause. On the other hand, the movie does have its moments and a sort of labor of love vibe, so it is hard to seriously hate it either.
Take Me Home Quotes
|Claire Barrow:||Flying is a lot safer than driving.|
|Thom Calvin:||That depends on who's doing the driving.|
|Lynnette Colvin:||"It's understandable, he was a hard man to know. I mean he didn't believe in second chances, what's done is done. I don't buy that. We can change. We do change. We don't have to take our regrets to the grave like he did. We can be free of all of that. We don't die inhaling, we exhale, we leave it all behind."|
