Take Me Home Tonight Reviews
03.04.11 by REELZ
Shot four years ago, when it was called Kids in America, the rebranded Take Me Home Tonight has finally made it to theaters. Was it worth the wait?
"...set in the summer of 1988 ... it does possess a certain backward-glancing innocent appeal."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...a reasonably watchable immersion..."
— Stephen Holden, New York Times
"As a raunchy romantic comedy or an homage to the 1980s, Take Me Home Tonight is hardly worth a one-night stand."
— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Please take the time to see Adventureland, a great coming-of-age comic romance set in 1987. Especially if you haven't seen it. Take Me Home Tonight, believe me, you've already seen."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"[Topher] Grace and his collaborators set out to make a typical '80s sex comedy and succeeded all too well; most of the movies they're paying homage to weren't very good, either."
— Nathan Rabin, Onion AV Club
"...an aggressively unfunny film which seeks the lowest common denominator in nearly every scene."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
