Anyhow suddenly Brandy becomes convinced she has to learn all about sex because after all, college is really where boys and girls start seriously dating, and she’d better know what she’s doing in advance.
Quickly realizing that she's way out of her league, Brandy solicits her best friends, older sister (Rachel Bilson) and burnt-out boss (Bill Hader) for their help and advice.As Brandy crams for her sexual finals, a supporting cast of horny misfits— an orally-challenged classmate (Donald Glover), a grunge-singing doofus (Andy Samberg) —eagerly offer their assistance and shocking mayhem ensues…Poehler, of course, enlisted Plaza, Ansari and fellow UCB vet Ben Schwartz for her seven-season NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.” UCB has grown with the careers of the performers it inspired, opening another theater in New York and two in Los Angeles.Though Plaza goes far beyond comedy for her performance in FX’s “Legion” — a role Vulture called “the most terrifying performance on TV” — her skills as an improviser are obvious.A winning lead performance by Aubrey Plaza and a script that doesn't treat its characters or its audience like morons help buoy director-writer Maggie Carey's The To Do List. Weary of the nonstop torrent of teasing her "condition" has inspired on the part of her classmates, friends, and older sister (Rachel Bilson), Brandy revises her to-do list until it consists solely of sexual acts, many of which she can't even define (most are also far too raunchy to print on a family website--what the movie lacks in nudity, it more than makes up for in profane language), that she plans to engage in before heading off to college.
The setting is mid-'90s Boise, Idaho, where Plaza's Brandy Klark is a model student at her high school: senior valedictorian, perfect grades, headed to Georgetown in the fall. Her summer job as a lifeguard trainee at the local public pool provides plenty of candidates to help her on her quest; although she fully expects to be deflowered by the studly, guitar-playing Rusty Waters (Scott Porter), she's only too eager to use Cameron (Johnny Simmons), the one guy who actually cares about her, and various others to check off the other items on her list.
Plaza listed them for us in the video above, and damn. Were Plaza and her old cohorts part of a secret laboratory designed to incubate comedy genius? They studied and performed together at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, an underground stage that extended beneath a Gristedes grocery store in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
It was famously founded by an original UCB team that included “Veep” star Matt Walsh and “Saturday Night Live” vet Amy Poehler.
Nor is the movie in general either as funny or as interesting as that predecessor.
I would describe it as “mildly amusing, and fairly harmless”Cute indie comedy that has a solid cast and some laugh out loud moments.
