A floundering MIT graduate sends out the '80s with a bang after being invited to an end-of-summer bash by his former high school crush in this nostalgia-flavored comedy starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, and Dan Fogler. Matt Franklin (Grace) has just graduated from MIT, but he's content to spend his days stacking the shelves of his local Suncoast Video instead of going to work for a Fortune 500 company. Meanwhile, his sarcastic twin sister, Wendy (Faris), knows he can do better, and his best friend, Barry (Fogler), has a wild streak the size of the Mississippi River. When Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer) happens into the video store one day and strikes up a conversation with Matt, he compulsively lies about having a job at Goldman Sachs. Incredibly, Matt and Tori hit it off, and she invites him to join her for a massive summer blowout. The opportunity of a lifetime finally within reach, Matt arrives at the party in style, intent on sweeping Tori off her feet. Later, somewhere between the stolen car and the epic dance-off, Matt, Tori, Wendy, and Barry realize that this is the night they will still be thinking about when they're old and gray, and the neon-drenched '80s are just a distant memory.

Though it definitely had it's moments and a great ending, I honestly expected a little bit more from the producers of That 70s Show. There were some really funny moments in this and the ending was great, I would probably chose to watch an episode of That 70s Show over this on an average basis, but the movie is at least worth a watch though. There is some worthwhile stuff in the movie, and the actors were pretty good in it. I'd say overall it's pretty average, but do at least give it a watch if you like these actors and comedy.

Topher Grace developed this story so that could tell you a little bit about the style of humor. This one didn't blow me away, but mainly because the character of Grace's best friend was so over the top it was just too abrasive for me. Everything else, though...very enjoyable. If you like the "sweet nerd pining over the hot girl and finally getting her" storyline, this film is for you.
