Take Me Home Tonight (Dowse, 2011) - 80s comedy with Topher Grace and Anna Faris

Follow an aimless college grad who pursues his dream girl at a wild Labor Day weekend party. He, his twin sister and their best friend struggle with their burgeoning adulthood over the course of the night.

Green Band Trailer;
<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5gYL9znVmGs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Red Band Trailer;
<object id="vid_4d4b12c83831c808e7000010" class="ign-videoplayer" width="480" height="270" data="http://media.ign.com/ev/prod/embed.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://media.ign.com/ev/prod/embed.swf" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><param name="flashvars" value="url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2011/02/03/take-me-home-tonight-red-band-trailer"/></object>



Oddly, the green band trailer has me more interested in the film than the red band, but the cast is what is really selling me on this flick.
Topher Grace
Anna Faris
Dan Fogler
Chris Pratt
Michelle Trachtenberg
Michael Ian Black
Michael Biehn


Not a fan of the 'Best. Night Ever.' tagline, though.

I was interested when I saw the green band, but the red band definitely sold me. Looks like the film actually has some heart, and very glad it doesn't settle for bland PG-13 humor.

Looks like it could be amusing, but the fat guy from Fanboys is annoying as shit.

Let's hope Topher doesn't remember what time 5:00 is.

Looks funny. I agree with the tagline. Best.Night.Ever is not 80's at all.

I think both trailers look great.

Never heard of this movie before this thread and now my ticket is as good as purchased.

Hey now, if the movie took that kind of turn it could be a great dark comedy.

this is that scee just in case people wonder about it.

guess you really hate the movie...anyway...

I don't think his performance was bad. Seems like it's what needed to be called for considered how the character was developed for that film, with that...it was kind of obvious that his character was a killer of some sorts considering that I don't think Predators fuck up on something like that. I also don't think Predators was awful. It was just...a remake of Predator, which is good and bad..considering how awesome Predator is. I thought it was entertaining for the most part....except for some of it's obvious weak points in plot and anything related to Fishburne's character. Bring on the sequel...

Wow, this is an obscure reference even Dennis Miller wouldn't get.

I'm a sucker for this kind of movies plus you got an Eddie Money song, Chris Pratt and Angie Everhart topless.

The Super Bowl spot made it look lame, but the red band trailer sold me, even though the green band gave more plot insight. I don't care for Topher Grace, but the image of him rapping to NWA is so outrageous you can't help but laugh.

Just FYI: This movie was shot nearly four years ago.

... and called Kids of America.

Since this is being released by Rogue/Relativity theatrically, it should be apart of their Netflix package dead, so I'll just wait to watch it until then.

Ah, so that explains why Anna Faris' face doesn't looked jacked up in this. When I saw the trailer I was wondering how she got her semi-old face back.
