Another Reason for the Take Me Home Tonight Delays

In March, after nearly four years of delays, Take Me Home Tonight (formerly Kids in America) will hit theaters. The film's time in limbo has long been blamed on tangled deal-making between Relativity Media and Universal, but Topher Grace, star and co-writer of the film, says that the studio was also wary of scenes portraying eighties-era twentysomethings doing loads of blow. "You can't do a movie about Prohibition without alcohol, and you really can't do a movie about partying in the '80s, at the age these kids are, without showing cocaine use," Grace told MTV. According to the actor, Relativity eventually understood the drug's place in the story and helped ensure the film's completion.
