Consensus: It has a charming sweetness about it, but Take Me Home Tonight is neither funny nor original enough to live up to the comedies it evokes.

Anna Smith
Time Out

It's an amiable but slow slice of nostalgia: think 'Hot Tub Time Machine' meets 'Superbad' - without the big laughs.

It's formulaic at best - and even that formula isn't always thought through.

John Hanlon

This unfunny comedy isn't worth leaving home for.

This low-powered, amiable, stunningly unimportant movie is essentially one long, noisy party (set in two houses).

Tom Long
Detroit News

Drinking jokes. Sex jokes. Wild antics. Sincere looks. Nothing goes on here that hasn't gone on -- and gone on better -- in other movies.

Just a standard, dull pseudo-teen comedy that just happens to take place in the '80s.

"Take Me Home Tonight" is not a bad movie. In fact, it's pretty good. It's just unnecessary.

A dirge of a comedy...

Tribune News Service

Ten years too late -- for the movie, the actors playing the roles in the movie. It's "Hot Tub Time Machine" without the time machine or the hot tub. Or the fun.

This film sucked. I mean I didn't expect much, so I guess I'm not too disappointed. The overall film was really unoriginal, predictable and cheesy.… More

It's got some funny scenes. Pretty decent movie IMO.
