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.

Carey may not be a household name, but you may have seen her works on NBC’s Parks and Recreation and Funny or Die.
