So, here’s the deal: I heard about The To Do List years ago and thought the premise sounded interesting. Fast forward a few years, the trailer came out, I wasn’t all that interested anymore. But it turns out that my initial excitement was well deserved, because I really fucking liked this movie.
A movie about a young woman taking control of her sexuality? Without regret? Without after school special consequences? While still maintaining a strong relationship with her female friends? Am I dreaming?
It’s insanely raunchy and surprisingly hilarious without losing heart. There’s a killer early 90’s soundtrack. It was WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY A WOMAN!!! These are all the things I need right now in this testosterone saturated summer, and you need them too. So go see it. Please? If only to see Audrey Plaza spit jizz out of her mouth?
The To Do List (2013):
Sex is a big deal, but it’s also not a big deal. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a big deal. But it doesn’t have to be such a big deal.
