12.16.10 by BJSprecher
Actor Topher Grace famously lampooned the 1970s as the star of the hit TV series That '70s Show, and now he's prepared to do the same thing to the '80s as the star of Take Me Home Tonight (formerly Young Americans), a new nostalgia comedy from '70s Show writers Jeff and Jackie Filgo.
Take Me Home Tonight tells the story of three friends on the verge of adulthood who attend an out-of-control party one night in the waning days of the summer 1988. The neon-tastic first poster for the movie was recently released and now the official synopsis and trailer for the movie are also online.
Here's the synopsis for the movie, being directed by Michael Dowse (Fubar).
Recent MIT grad Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) should be working for a Fortune 500 company and starting his upward climb to full-fledged yuppie-hood. Instead, the directionless 23-year-old confounds family and friends by taking a part-time job behind the counter of a video store at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. But Matt's silent protest against maturity comes to a screeching halt once his unrequited high school crush, Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer), walks into the store. When she invites him to an epic, end-of-summer party, Matt thinks he finally might have a chance with the girl of his dreams. With his cynical twin sister Wendy (Anna Faris) and best friend Barry (Dan Fogler), Matt embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime evening. From stealing a car to a marriage proposal to an indescribable, no-holds-barred dance-off, these friends share experiences that will change the course of their lives on one unforgettable night in the Go-Go '80s.
