Who doesn’t love cinema from the 80s? Aside from Cole Abaius I mean. The decade is a movie genre unto itself and filled with films that could have only been made in that very specific time. More than just about any other decade films from the 80s are instantly recognizable by their attitudes, wardrobes, and degree of female nudity. Luckily for those of us you who weren’t alive in the 80s Hollywood occasionally returns to the scene of the crime and makes a film that hopes to recapture that poppy magic. The most recent example is the ensemble comedy Take Me Home Tonight starring Topher Grace, Dan Fogler, Anna Faris (in a rare non-ditzy role), and the lovely Teresa Palmer. (Demetri Martin also steals every scene he’s in.)
Take Me Home Tonight hit shelves today, and we’ve got three brand new DVDs to give away! How can you win? Simple… there were thousands of movies produced during the 1980s, but not all of them are perfect representatives of their time-frame. Tell us in the comment section below which 80s film is the most iconic of the decade and why.
As always the contest is open to US residents only ages 18 and up. Be sure to leave an email address associated with your comment is correct as that’s how we’ll notify the winner. Contest ends July 25th! Good luck!
The official synopsis and trailer are below.
Take Me Home Tonight follows three friends on the verge of adulthood who attend an out-of-control party in celebration of their last night of unbridled youth. Starring Topher Grace (“That 70’s Show,” Predators), Anna Faris (The House Bunny), Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four), Take Me Home Tonight is a raunchy, romantic, ridiculous and raucous ride set to an awesome soundtrack of timeless rock and hip-hop hits.”
