TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT (15) CAST: Topher Grace, Dan Fogler, Anna Faris, Teresa Palmer PLOT: Matt Franklin (Grace) is a brainy graduate who doesn't know what to do with his life and is working in a video store (it's the 1980s). In walks Tori (Palmer), the girl he was in love with at school, but he pretends to work in banking like her. To impress her further, his best mate Barry (Fogler) 'borrows' a sports car.

GOOD POINTS: We've seen rather too many of these '80s comedies - Hot Tub Time Machine did it better - but any film with Duran Duran and Dexy's Midnight Runners on the soundtrack can't be all bad. I admit to laughing at a stunt in the opening scene, but then it was downhill all the way. Literally, during the quite exciting 'riding the ball' final. BAD POINTS: Fogler is intensely annoying, even more so when Barry takes cocaine - he makes Jack Black look talented. Faris is underused as Matt's twin and it's basically just not very entertaining.

SHOULD I SEE IT? I would stay home tonight rather than see this.
