You Might Just Be Glad You Did!!
It all starts with a little white lie. At least this is how the best and worst night of Matt Franklin’s(Topher Grace) life began. A recent MIT graduate, who can’t decide on a career choice, takes a job at the local DVD store. One day his high school crush Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer) shows up to rent a DVD and he tells her that he’s a banker, thus begins the web of lies. That night Matt attends a wild party with Tori and things, as they always do, get wild. Matt must decide if he wants to come clean and be honest, or live a lie but have the girl of his dreams. Take Me Home Tonight has some redeeming qualities, and some not-so-redeeming qualities. On a positive note, the music is akin to that of The Wedding Singer, where every 80’s song that comes on you can’t help but belt out the lyrics and only wish that the whole song would play instead of just a snippet. Next, is Topher Grace who despite the fact that he is co-starred by Teresa Palmer and Anna Faris, completely steals the spot light. His acting was dynamic and captivating and frankly his was the only acting that didn’t lack talent. The rest of the cast, though they are all beautiful, their acting was too forced. But as a whole Take Me Home Tonight really wasn’t that bad. I went into the movie thinking I’d see a light-hearted, mediocre plotted romantic comedy, and that’s exactly what I got. I took it home, and so should you!
Motherly Advice: I had my filters set on medium and was glad because Take Me Home Tonight, was packed with as many expletives as humanly possible. So much so that I had to pay very special attention to the conversation that was being said in between so I knew what was happening. Also there was one sex scene that you’ll see Teresa Palmer’s top half in just her bra. I’m sure you’ll avoid this scene altogether if your sexual content and nudity filter is on most though. You’ll also see a few short scenes involving drugs and alcohol. Because of the content of this movie I would recommend ages 17 and up.
Trisha-Glad to be over that “post-graduate” find yourself phase!!
