The To-Do List tells a story we’ve all seen before: nerdy kid about to go off to college, wants to lose virginity before the summer’s out to keep from looking like a big loser in front of all the cool kids at college (note to 18-year-olds: in my experience, there are no cool kids at college). The twist this time is that the main character is a GIRL (*Home Alone face slap*), played by Aubrey Plaza, and the film’s set in 1993. By the way, where were all these girls when I was about to go off to college? Probably banging 24-year-olds. Never mind.
Starring Aubrey Plaza, THE TO DO LIST follows the story of Brandy Klark (Plaza), a Type-A, overachiever who comes up with a “to-do list” featuring all the risqué extra-curricular activities she missed out on in high school and wants to complete before college. Rachel Bilson, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Scott Porter, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Johnny Simmons, Sarah Steele and Alia Shawkat co-star in the film. Written and directed by Maggie Carey.
