After four years at M.I.T., Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) doesn't know what he wants to do with his life, and after nearly four years of sitting on a shelf, 'Take Me Home Tonight' isn't sure what it wants to be, either. Is it a knowing tribute to the "one crazy night" romps of the '80s? Is it an introspective coming-of-age dramedy that just happens to be set in the same era? The film starts out with big hair, skinny ties, and hit song after hit song after hit song, eager to capitalize on every possible pop-culture signpost early on before settling into a slack rhythm of sitcom setpieces interrupted by stale emotional conflict.
