TRAILER: Topher Grace's "Take Me Home Tonight"

PLOT: Follow an aimless college grad (Grace) who pursues his dream girl (Palmer) at a wild Labor Day weekend party. He, his twin sister (Faris) and their best friend (Fogler) struggle with their burgeoning adulthood over the course of the night.

CAST: Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer (The Sorcerer's Apprentice), Chris Pratt ("Parks & Recreation"), Demetri Martin, Michelle Trachtenberg ("Gossip Girl")

VERDICT: Where has Topher been? Even though he appeared in Spider-Man 3, Valentine's Day, and Predators, I feel like the last time I saw him was in 2004's Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. He's not the traditional choice for a romantic lead, but he plays indecisive dork so well that roles like this seem made for him. What sets this one apart from the others, though, is that this film has the hilarious inadequacies of the 80s, two comedic actors (Faris and Fogler) have his back, and there are some genuinely funny parts in this trailer. I don't think I'll ever get the sound of him rapping "Straight Outta Compton" out of my head.

Release Date: March 4
