Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Take Me Home Tonight

Matt runs into his highschool crush Tori in the video store that he works at and pretends to be a trader to impress her. She invites him to a party where he goes with his bestfriend Barry and his sister Wendy. Barry "borrows" a Benz from the dealership he works at to take to the party, and finds some drugs in the compartment. Later they move to a party in Beverly Hills upon the invitation of Tori where Barry gets compromised into a wild threesome with an older couple. Meanwhile, Tori and Matt reminisce about old times, hit it off, and they have sex. Meanwhile, Wendy, having just been proposed to by her cheesy boyfriend is having second thoughts. When Matt comes clean to Tori about not being a trader, she hates him. Matt and Barry leave and then get into a car accident and run into Matt's strict police officer dad. The dad is very disappointed with Matt and tells him to shape up and do something with his life. Matt then returns to the party and pulls a death-defying stunt and survives. He and Tori make-up. Wendy calls it off with her boyfriend. Barry ponders going back to college. After a wild series of events, the three call it a night and go out for breakfast.

Best part of story, including ending: It's a current movie but it's set in the 80s so it's a throwback to the teen comedies of that time.

Best scene in story: The trampoline truth or dare scene.

Opinion about the main character: Matt is just figuring his life out and one night to impress the girl of his dreams pushes him to become a better guy.
