Take Me Home Tonight, aside from being a really shitty Eddie Money song (wait – is there such a thing as a good Eddie Money song?) that makes me want to put a gun to my head, is also the title of a forthcoming return-to-the-80s comedy starring the affable and lovable Topher Grace (Predators) and Anna Faris (Yogi Bear). As a side note, Take Me Home Tonight also stars Teresa Palmer, whom I am seriously crushing on after watching the not-as-crappy-as-I-assumed summer popcorn flameout, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. You should go rent that movie just to see Miss Palmer. She is all sorts of lovely.
Alas, I digress.
Take Me Home Tonight centers around three recent college grads – Grace, Faris and Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury) – and the question they, and everyone else, face: What should I do with the rest of my life? Things get a little complicated when Grace, who works at a video rental store, tells Palmer that he works for Goldman Sachs. This looks like Hot Tub Time Machine with a sizeable porton of rom-con and a pinch of drama. Based on the cast, I really want this to be a great movie, but past experience tells me I’m probably smoking crack holding out for hope this will be both commercially and critically praised.
Check out the trailer and let me know if this is something you’d want to see when it hits theaters on March 4, 2011.
