Take Me Home
Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
There's a fantastic soft-rock soundtrack by whoever the hell Bootstraps is, but that's about the only really nice thing I can say about this indie movie. It's built on two dusty old romantic-comedy conventions that it stubbornly refuses to freshen up: The couple who bicker numerous times before realizing they're growing close, and the fledgling relationship built on an unnecessary lie that would cease to be an issue if the lying party would just come clean about it. It feels like a product of a screenwriting class: Not bad exactly, with a few clever moments even, but not especially worth seeing.
