The To-Do List Director: Maggie Carey
Screenwriter: Maggie Carey
Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Rachel Bilson, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg CBS Films | 3 Arts Entertainment
Rated R | 104 Minutes
Release Date: July 26, 2013
Set in the summer of 1993, Maggie Carey‘s The To-Do List stars Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Safety Not Guaranteed) as an awkward, overachieving high school senior who attempts to lose her virginity before going away to college.
The To-Do List is a raunchy high school sex comedy in the “Let’s Get Laid!” tradition of films like 1982’s Goin’ All The Way, The Last American Virgin, and Porky’s. What’s refreshing about this slice of ’90s nostalgia is how it approaches the coming-of-age / end-of-innocence story from the female perspective.
Plaza plays Brandy Clark, a bookish valedictorian who can’t escape the ridicule of her too-cool classmates for being a goody-good. She decides to create a to-do list (in her Trapper Keeper!) of sexual experiences to get her up to speed before fall semester starts. Brandy enlists the help of best friends Wendy (Sarah Steele) and Fiona (Alia Shawkat), and the guidance of her skanky sister Amber (Rachel Bilson), to come up with a checklist of activities including French kissing, hickies, motor-boating, and all sorts of odd jobs.
The trailer for The To Do List opens with Aubrey Plaza sarcastically pitching that the film is not like any ordinary rom-com that generally finds an ensemble cast playing through a stale plot. A few seconds later into the trailer and we start to see that she isn’t lying at all. The first red band trailer for Maggie Carey‘s The To Do List has arrived online and it has a chance to be one of the best comedies of 2013. So check out the NSFW red band trailer below.
