A behind the scenes featurette for the upcoming comedy Take Me Home Tonight has landed online. Directed by Michael Dowse, the film stars Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, and Chris Pratt. The comedy is set in 1988 and features a recent MIT grad (Grace) who makes a move on his high school crush (Palmer), steals a car, and embarks on numerous other misadventures all in the course of one night. While it very well may have a lot more going for it, I plan on catching the film for no other reason than its nostalgia-ridden 80s soundtrack. Here’s to hoping A-ha’s classic “Take on Me” makes an appearance.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. Take Me Home Tonight hits theaters next week on March 4th.
Here’s the featurette [from Apple]:
As the summer of 1988 winds down, three friends on the verge of adulthood attend an out-of-control party in celebration of their last night of unbridled youth. Starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, DanFogler and Teresa Palmer, Take Me Home Tonight is a raunchy, romantic and ultimately touching blast from the past set to an awesome soundtrack of timeless rock and hip-hop hits.
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.
