If you like going into your Richard Tiffany Gere and Christopher John "Topher" Grace (together at last!) buddy movies unspoiled, try avoiding any upcoming promotional material for "The Double," because the trailer that has debuted over at Apple has no qualms about sledgehammering its various plot turns into your consciousness with all the subtlety of a massive, unexpected coronary. The film -- which is not that Jesse Eisenberg/Richard Ayoade Dostoevsky adaptation you’ve been hearing about -- pits two of Hollywood’s dullest acting talents against each other in what appears to be a ludicrous combination of Michael Mann’s “Heat” and Sally Field’s performance in “Sybil.”

Generally, when a film sits around as long as "Take Me Home Tonight" (formerly known as "Kids In America") has (filming wrapped way back in 2007), the perception is that it's a road apple. But as Topher Grace related in December, it was actually the film's wanton approach to drugs that caused the hold up.

When a film sits on a shelf waiting to get released, the general consensus is that it's a stinker. With filming wrapped way, way back in 2007 for "Take Me Home Tonight" (known at the time as "Kids In America"), and as each year passed with no news of a release date, we pretty much figured it was a misfire and the studio was simply waiting to dump it with an early winter no man's land of a release date or straight-to-home video. And then we saw the trailer. And to our pleasant surprise it looks like a lot of fun, and speaking with MTV, executive producer and actor Topher Grace reveals that the film's delay had to do with some dicey drug scenes, not necessarily the quality of the film.

Ah, Suncoast Video. The one-time suburban staple of home video rentals is no more, but it lives on in "Take Me Home Tonight" a 1988-set comedy that seems to giving a big, huge nod to the '80s films of John Hughes.
