Rated PG-13 for some sexual references
|Take Me Home
For first time writer-director Sam Jaeger, “Take Me Home” is a fairly enjoyable cross country trip and romantic comedy that follows the same basic rom-com, buddy travel story ideas while producing some high caliber performances from unknowns Jaeger and his real-life wife Amber. Traveling from New York to Los Angeles, the characters do enough to hold one’s attention while giving fake taxi cab rides or arguing about how they’ll get money or whose fault it is that the cab broke down. Ultimately relying on a healthy balance between recycled ideas and some unique additions of its own, Jaeger does produce a successful first endeavor into film-making.
