Topher Grace is a product of the 80s in the trailer for Take Me Home Tonight

At first glance, the 80s-set comedy TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT seems to have a few things going for it: Topher Grace, attractive ladies (including the barely seen Michelle Trachtenberg), some NWA, Michael Biehn, and the inherent hilarity of the decade's gaudy garb.

But upon closer inspection, it looks like a fairly generic romcom that you might have watched... back in the 1980s. Your mileage may vary, or just make you think of LICENSE TO DRIVE.

The synopsis: 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, Dan Fogler 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.

Extra Tidbit: I used to think the lyric in the titular Eddie Money song was "Just slap Ronni's ass." Which doesn't make sense, but when do any misheard lyrics?
