    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    One raucous night, one raunchy party, "American Graffiti filtered through "Dazed and Confused" and the Shermer High films of John Hughes. show more

    Every last joke in the movie - verbal gags, visual gags, musical cues, camera moves - is crushingly literal. show more

    As a raunchy romantic comedy or an homage to the 1980s, Take Me Home Tonight is hardly worth a one-night stand. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Nostalgia for the '80s - big hair, Madonna, cocaine, big hair, Duran Duran, more cocaine - is all well and good. Unless it's practiced with the charmless ineptitude of Take Me Home Tonight. show more

    Ultimately, the characters are props in a movie about popped collars and Ray-Bans, rather than the other way around. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Michael Dowse's aggressively unfunny film which seeks the lowest common denominator in nearly every scene. show more

    Take Me Home Tonight isn't nearly as much fun as the '80s actually were. Even worse, it's less fun than most '80s comedies were - and that's bad. show more

    Completely unoriginal, sure, but watchable and even likable. show more

    Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    Hits most of the markers of a flashback film but not enough of the beats. show more

    Take Me Home Tonight must have been made with people who had a great deal of nostalgia for the 1980s, a relatively unsung decade. More power to them. The movie unfortunately gives them no dialogue expanding them into recognizable human beings. show more

    really entertaining movie and had its moments for comedy as well. Also introduced a rather good looking actress to the scree who looks a lot like Kristina stewart

    This movie is surprisingly good.It's funny. I liked the"ride the ball scene" Only problemi s Grace(whom I ususally cannot stomach) is about ten years too old for the part. Same is true to some degree of Faris,************ wowed audiences in Yogi Bear 3-D !!! A fun, mindless movie!!

    I really have to question the critics, as I feel this movie was one of the best movies I have seen in the past 2 years. I would highly recommend this movie to friends and family.

    Take Me Home Tonight is a familiar story with a few new twists of it's own. Great cast , most memorable is Dan Fogler as the friend with limitless enthusiasum. Favorable audience reaction throughout the film, Teresa Palmer and Topher Grace make it entertaining and likeable.
