This unfunny comedy isn't worth leaving home for.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5

Just a standard, dull pseudo-teen comedy that just happens to take place in the '80s.

Ten years too late -- for the movie, the actors playing the roles in the movie. It's "Hot Tub Time Machine" without the time machine or the hot tub. Or the fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

Pap in service of wistfulness about a time period now thoroughly mocked to death.

This 80s-nostalgic comedy relies too much on its big hair and bright clothes and not enough on getting inside the head of its characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

As enjoyable as the soundtrack and general nostalgia of this film is, it just doesn't rise above wannabe status.

...a better-than-expected bit of '80s nostalgia...

A tonally uneasy mish-mash of stale slapstick and na´ve representations of drug use.

Eddie Money deserves better than this.

[Director] Dowse's film is so formula that it is aimlessly predictable...

Grace is particularly wet, lacking the charisma or the charm to pull off the shy nerd-at-heart routine needed to convince you he could actually win the girl of his dreams.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Not a journey to the end of the night that I'd recommend.

This 1980s-set comedy was shot in 2007 and has been sitting on the shelf ever since. The damn thing's so old it's almost retro twice over.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

So bad, it's almost good... if certainly not great.

80s nostalgia as a thing is so ten years ago... just about the time that the 33-year-old Topher Grace would have been the right age to play [this] just-out-of-college, I-dunno-what-to-do-with-myself whiner...
Derek Malcolm

It's a dispiriting mess throughout.
| Original Score: 1/5
David Edwards

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Like a lot of fun nights out, you might enjoy it but won't remember a thing.

Who ever thought we'd care?
