80's Zany Humor, An Awesome Retro Soundtrack and a Little Heart thrown in Makes this,
This review is from: Take Me Home Tonight [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)I thoughouly enjoyed this film. I found all the characters to be perfectly cast as I followed them through this crazy night of partying, mischief and self discovery. This homage of a film pays its dues to the great, seems to not have a plot at all, but still is very entertaining and sentimental. Topher Grace cannot find himself, Dan Fogler loses himself, Anna Faris is stuck in between pleasing herself or her soon to be fiance, and Teresa Palmer finds a guy who has liked her since high school. The comedy does not lighten up during the film, but does mix a well amount of sentimental feeling to it which in my opinion makes the film stand out more than it would've if it just were goofy and over the top.
The blu ray version of the film looks great in general. Colors are strong, and pores on peoples' faces are seen. There is a digital copy of the film that comes with the blu ray. The film is a moderate 97 minutes which goes by quickly and actually leaves you wanting more, or at least I could have had another 10 minutes. Luckily this film has a decent amount of special features. They range from 7 hilarious deleted scenes that should have been added to film, a cast get together featurette, theatrical trailer, take me home tonight music video and an awesome music boombox featurette that includes 12 great 80's songs including "straight outta COmpton", "video Killed the Radio Star", "kickstart my heart", "let my love open the door" and " dont you want me".
Personally, if you ask me...I'll say buy it. As soon as I finished watching it once I came to conclusion that I would not hesitate to watch again. It definitely is a feel good movie and I felt it did just that...put me in a good mood and had me thinking about those classic 80's movies.
Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.
