    Exclusive: Teresa Palmer Talks 'Take Me Home Tonight' & Her Return To Drama In 'Say Nothing'

    Though it finally hit theaters this weekend, "Take Me Home Tonight" had a bumpy road there, sitting on the shelf for a few years due to the heavy drug content in the film. However, actor and executive producer Topher Grace fought for the film, mega-producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer from Imagine Entertainment came in and encouraged Grace to keep the cut he wanted and he got the final boost of approval from Ryan Kavanaugh, the CEO of Relativity Media who released the movie. But the wait hasn't hurt the film as it boasts an array of talent -- Grace, Anna Farris, Chris Pratt among the ensemble -- whose profile has only gone up in the interven...

    In Theaters: 'The Adjustment Bureau,' 'Rango,' 'Take Me Home Tonight,' 'Beastly'

    It's Friday, and we've finally shaken off the contact high we got from James Franco at the Oscars. We had to snag some uppers from Anne Hathaway just to get through the week (somehow the footage of her rehearsing the Jessie Spano "I'm so Excited" scene has yet to hit the web). Has everyone recovered from that annual weird-fest? It's like they try and make it more bizarre every year. But it's our tradition, and we have to keep watching. Thank you all for reading the liveblog, and commenting. We woke up to anxiety dreams that after the regular Oscars, there was another, completely different Oscars to liveblog. Not that we don't love it, we just...

    Review: 'Take Me Home Tonight' Travels To The '80s But Doesn't Bring Back The Laughs

    Maybe going into "Take Me Home Tonight" expecting something like a John Hughes movie was completely delusional, but when your 80s-set movie is less "Just One of the Guys" allure and more like the second-rate "Can't Hardly Wait" wannabes that flooded the late-90s/early-00s, well, we can't help but call bullshit. If you're gonna set your comedy in that decade, it's gotta have certain characteristics, not just video tapes and poofy hair -- here its something akin to a downloadable "skin" for an MP3 player. A period piece isn't just costumes and clever art design, it has to feel like that moment through in writing, acting, direction, etc -- it es...

    'Take Me Home Tonight' Soundtrack A Solid '80s Mixtape But Curiously Missing Eddie Money

    Even though it has taken a few years to get into theaters, "Take Me Home Tonight" doesn't carry the stink of shelved film, but instead looks like a funny, foul R-rated comedy, and with the setting of the film firmly in the 1980s it naturally has the soundtrack to match.

    Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'Take Me Home Tonight' Is The R-Rated '80s Movie You Always Wanted

    Generally, when a film sits around as long as "Take Me Home Tonight" (formerly known as "Kids In America") has (filming wrapped way back in 2007), the perception is that it's a road apple. But as Topher Grace related in December, it was actually the film's wanton approach to drugs that caused the ho...

    Topher Grace Says Rampant Cocaine Use Reason For 'Take Me Home Tonight' Release Delay

    When a film sits on a shelf waiting to get released, the general consensus is that it's a stinker. With filming wrapped way, way back in 2007 for "Take Me Home Tonight" (known at the time as "Kids In America"), and as each year passed with no news of a release date, we pretty much figured it was a misfire and the studio was simply waiting to dump it with an early winter no man's land of a release date or straight-to-home video. And then we saw the trailer. And to our pleasant surprise it looks like a lot of fun, and speaking with MTV, executive producer and actor Topher Grace reveals that the film's delay had to do with some dicey drug scenes...

    Watch: 'Take Me Home Tonight' Confirms That It's Incredibly Lame To Work At Suncoast Video

    Ah, Suncoast Video. The one-time suburban staple of home video rentals is no more, but it lives on in "Take Me Home Tonight" a 1988-set comedy that seems to giving a big, huge nod to the '80s films of John Hughes.
