New Release: Take Me Home Tonight DVD and Blu-ray

Take Me Home TonightFollowing a dismal run in theaters, comedy Take Me Home Tonight was released on DVD and Blu-ray on July 19, 2011, from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

That 70s Show star Topher Grace is in the 1980s for this movie. He plays an MIT graduate who, disgusted by the materialism around him, has quit his high-paying job to work as a clerk at a Suncoast video store. He pursues his dream girl (Teresa Palmer, I Am Number Four) at a Labor Day weekend party, with his twin sister (Anna Faris, Yogi Bear) and best friend (Dan Fogler, Love Happens) in tow. Chris Pratt (TV’s Parks and Recreation), Michael Biehn (Terminator), Lucy Punch (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger) and Michelle Trachtenberg (TV’s Mercy) round out the cast.

Despite opening in more than 2,000 screens in March, Take Me Home Tonight grossed only $7 million and left theaters in a hurry. Judging by the trailer (see below), the R-rated movie looks like your standard party comedy.

Take Me Home Tonight Blu-ray boxThe best part might be the 80s soundtrack, with songs by Duran Duran, Yaz, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, Motley Crue and others, and they’ll be included on a “Music Boombox” feature on the DVD and Blu-ray.

Here are the rest of the special features on both formats:

  • seven deleted scenes
  • “Cast Get Together”
  • “Take Me Home Tonight” music video

The Blu-ray also has a downloadable digital copy of the film.

The DVD is priced at $29.99 and Blu-ray at $39.99.
