Go Behind the Scenes With the Cast of Take Me Home Tonight in New Featurette
03.02.11 by BJSprecher
Director Michael Dowse's (Fubar) long delayed ode-to-the-'80s comedy, Take Me Home Tonight (formerly Kids in America), will finally arrive in theaters this Friday after languishing for nearly four years in post-production. To help promote the movie, the principal cast members—Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, and Chris Pratt—recently got together to drink some beers and reminisce about the making of the movie in this new behind-the-scenes featurette that includes never-before-seen footage from the movie.
Take Me Home Tonight was written by That '70s Show writers Jeff and Jackie Filgo. Here's the synopsis:
Recent MIT grad Matt Franklin (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 (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 (Faris) and best friend Barry (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.
