QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: In 1988, four young twenty-somethings muddle through a night of intense partying while unsure of where they are headed in life.
PLOT:
On one night in 1988, four young twenty-somethings will party hearty unsure of what the rest of their lives will bring when they wake up - if they wake up - the next morning. Matt Franklin (TOPHER GRACE) has graduated from M.I.T. with an engineering degree. But he has found that he hates engineering. So he has returned to his California parents' home and now works at a video store. His twin sister, Wendy (ANNA FARIS), has decided to buy a condo with her vapid boyfriend, Kyle (CHRIS PRATT), but she has also applied to the Creative Writing Master's program at Cambridge. The mail has just come, and there is either a rejection or an acceptance letter.

Matt, meanwhile, has a chance meeting at the mall with his dream girl from high school, Tori Frederking (TERESA PALMER), who has also recently graduated college with a finance degree. To impress her, Matt lies that he is employed at Goldman Sachs. He gets his slacker friend, Barry (DAN FOGLER), to come along with him to a party Tori will be at. Barry, recently fired from his car salesman job, decides to go to the bash in style and steals a Mercedes convertible from his former employer's lot.

What follows is an evening of partying, drinking, recreational cocaine use, cops, '80s music dance-offs, and (of course) intense decision making.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens will be drawn to the film with its young cast and naughty, R-rated thrills. Younger teens may hear of the debauchery on display throughout and may want to see it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language, sexual content, and drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
