There's a good, snappy screwball comedy buried somewhere in the movie, but director Michael Dowse can't unearth it.

Take Me Home Tonight is pretty similar to Hot Tub Time Machine, playing for the same silly Eighties laughs but never quite getting them.

Disappointing comedy that coasts along thanks to a likeable performance from Topher Grace but ultimately falls down thanks to some poor writing, a lack of decent jokes and a wasted supporting cast.

It's an amiable but slow slice of nostalgia: think 'Hot Tub Time Machine' meets 'Superbad' - without the big laughs.
April 16, 2011
A formulaic romantic comedy that underutilizes its likable stars and fails to effectively capitalize on the character of the era.

You'll leave the theater mildly entertained and not too sleepy.

Moral: Parachute pants and Wang Chung are not enough.

A serviceable adult romp about a Night That Changes Lives Forever, 'Take Me Home Tonight' is a raunchy glance back at the '80s.

Tonight better left to yesterday.

... a basically inert rehash of the standard wild-all-night-party-that-changes-everything-with-nonstop-nostalgic-oldies-on-the-soundtrack movie ...

This low-powered, amiable, stunningly unimportant movie is essentially one long, noisy party (set in two houses).

Take Me Home Tonight, sadly, plays like something that's perennially stocked in the remainder bins at Suncoast Video.

A venal, mindless, and aggressively chintzy movie.

This one misses on just about every angle - plot, characters. laughs. Well at least the soundtrack is good.

I still can't think of a reason why this couldn't have been set in the present.

The 1988-set film "Take Me Home Tonight" grows on you in spite of that lazy pop-song title and an opening 15 minutes that may be the worst I've seen in ages.
March 6, 2011
A well-acted but forgettable 'Hot Tub Time Machine' clone for the post-college set (and without the time travel.)
March 5, 2011
Movies keep getting worse. Hall Pass was awful. Drive Angry made Hall Pass seem like Gone With the Wind. Take Me Home Tonight makes one yearn for Drive Angry.
March 4, 2011
...it's an even more plastic, hollow and underwhelming experience than actually living through 1988.

Works better when it pauses in between its shallow gags and observes the angst of the recent college graduate.
