Take Me Home Tonight- July 27th

Take Me Home Tonight (2011)
English- Comedy
Rated “R”
Runtime- 97 min.
dir. Michael Dowse
 

I was hoping for a fresh take on a young people’s comedy with a 1980’s flair.  What it ended up being was just a regular, bland comedy that happens to take place in the 80’s.

Story/Writing: 1/2

Topher Grace plods around as the same unlucky guy he plays every movie.  A big party comes up, and he gets another chance with his high school crush.

Acting: 1/2

Everyone does their part in the tried and true formula, but it doesn’t ever get off the ground.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Typical.  It’s almost like this movie was actually made in the 80’s because of all the methods that were used.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Again, fairly average, but I did like the effects used on the soundtrack to give it a period feel.

Misc: 1/2

VERDICT: 6/10

Side-note: Yes, I know I’m really behind right now.  I’m working to catch up, so just stick with me.  I have a personal goal of completing this, so believe me when I say that I’m going to finish.  That said, sacrifices will have to be made, including a very streamlined review format (probably 150 words or less), and an entire month of easy to watch movies.  Thus, I am now declaring November to be “Jimmy Bond Month”.  During this span, I’ll be watching every single James Bond movie, as well as similar movies from the period.
