Set in 1993, valedictorian Brandy Klark wants to shed her uptight image before college, so she assembles a to do list of all the "activities" she missed out on in high school. Quickly realizing that she's way out of her depth, Brandy solicits her best friends, older sister and burnt-out boss for their help and advice. If the group is going to complete the list by September they'll need plenty of imagination and very open minds.
Comedy - This is a very raunchy sex comedy that is actually centered around
and targeted toward young women. Aubrey Plaza is the lead, but there
are a number of recognizable faces in choice supporting roles.
Nonstop sex talk, sexual situations, and language make the film
completely inappropriate for kids.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; over 30 S-words; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Lots of sex without nudity. VIOLENCE: None. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, including by teens; marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant verbal and physical sex gags; gross-out humor.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good There's nothing sweet or innocent about this particular teen comedy but the crudeness results in smiles and laughter, not grimaces, and that makes all the difference.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average Just place 'The To Do List' under the category of a fling rather than a classic.
Washington PostFull Review Above Average The one thing 'The To Do List' lacks is emotion. Carey is wise not to let the movie get bogged down by too much drama,...
NY PostFull Review Very Good This deliciously raunchy coming-of-age tale, the feature writing/directing debut of comedian Maggie Carey, sees Plaza hitting her leading-lady stride as nerdy, Hillary Clinton-worshiping high school valedictorian Brandy Klark.
