      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It has a charming sweetness about it, but Take Me Home Tonight is neither funny nor original enough to live up to the comedies it evokes.

      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: B- Feb 18, 2012 Full Review Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness Pap in service of wistfulness about a time period now thoroughly mocked to death. Rated: C- Sep 12, 2011 Full Review Philip French Guardian Not a journey to the end of the night that I'd recommend. May 15, 2011 Full Review Brent McKnight The Last Thing I See "Take Me Home Tonight" isn't anything original. However, that doesn't stop the movie from having some big laughs and a certain charm that does actually make you nostalgic for this kind of film. Rated: B- Jul 13, 2020 Full Review John Hanlon Big Hollywood This unfunny comedy isn't worth leaving home for. Rated: 0.5/5 Jun 30, 2013 Full Review Will Leitch Deadspin Just a standard, dull pseudo-teen comedy that just happens to take place in the '80s. Rated: D Jun 23, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Luis L Great movie! Idk why it's has a low score. People are insane to not like it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Cork B The elements of an 80s nostalgia rom com are all there... and yet... it doesn't quite gel. I think this comes down to this movie is shallow and pointless at its heart. Grace, while I don't think he is a bad actor, has a snarky understated presence that just comes off as unlikeable. The friend is an amoral moron. The sister and her problems are at best pointless rich people problems. And the love interest... oh dear lord. Aside from the horrible Lucas-style love dialogue, she comes across as a gold digging alpha-chaser. Maybe this movie is for all the fraternity and sorority jerks that can't find love no matter how much of an asshole they are? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Big B I thought this film is a very good time. Perfect? No but being a teenager in the mid to late 80's it brings great memories from this era in time. Great music, mall shopping and good times with friends. A great watch!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/22/23 Full Review Michael T It was a bit awkward getting started. I was debating turning it off about 30 minutes in, but then it started picking up. Is it original or different? No. The characters get more likeable as it goes on and the situations and performances are funny enough to carry it along. Dan Fogler as the best friend is hilarious. I laughed quite a bit. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Frank D Not funny or fun. Fake "zaniness". Gen Z humor=awkward and stupid. The cast and soundtrack couldn't redeem this poorly written dungheep of a flick. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/26/23 Full Review Laura R Your average "losers are winners and winners are losers" story, nerd hero gets the girl and all... People traumatized by the USA high school experience might enjoy it. I only watched it for Anna Faris and was really disappointed Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
