Spider-Man 3 should have launched Topher Grace onto the A-list. But then people saw the movie. He’s been laying lowish these last few years, and now ready to return to what he does best… previous decade-based comedy. This time the “That 70’s Show” star is taking on the 80’s with Take Me Home Tonight. He plays a recent MIT grad whose unsure about his future. Naturally, he takes a job at Suncoast Video while figuring himself out. Until the day his high school crush walks in to buy a copy of Cocktail. She invites him and his loser friends to a party. What happens next? Decade-specific hijinx, of course.
Hmm… expensive education, arrested emotional development, video store knowledge. I think the logical next step is for Topher’s character to get a job at Screen Junkies.
