The To Do List

Rated  R / 1 hr 44 min / Comedy - Romance

 What is it about? 

A high school valedictorian, who has always done everything right, gets booed off the stage during her speach at graduation.  She is tired of being called a "loser" because she is a virgin.  She decides to make a to do list of all of the sexual acts she wants to participate in before she goes away to college.  The only problem is that she doesn't know what most of them are.

You will like it if... 

You like teenage comedy or romance movies.  Flipped comes to mind.  I also really like Aubrey Plaza who plays the main character in the movie.  I would recommend Safety Not Guaranteed to see more of her work.  This one is more of a comedy than either of those movies, and it has some hilarious moments.  If they hadn't set this up as being a movie that takes place in the early 90's it wouldn't have worked.  Teenagers today have access to the internet and all of it's glory holes. This movie may not resonate with some, but I found it to be entertaining throughout even if only mildly so at times.
