The To Do List Reviews

Austin Trunick
Under the Radar

This raunchy teen comedy more than earns its R-rating ... but it does so with a lot of heart.

Movie Habit

One more overly crude teen comedy

EntertainmentTell

The film gives these people just about nothing funny to do, and it's full of both gross-out gags that don't connect and dialogue that isn't especially funny.

Painfully awkward encounters ensue, with Plaza handling it all with her deadpan elegance.

"The To Do List" is another one of those films that begs the question of how the writer ever thought it was a good idea.

What Culture

The jokes are frequent, rapidly fired, and often sharply written, featuring crude sexual dialogue about everything imaginable from masturbation to states of sexual arousal.

Shadows on the Wall

While it's too gentle to be a classic, it's still worth a look.

Observer [UK]

Writer/director Maggie Carey's clodhopping coming-of-age yarn merely proves that terrible teen movies are now a source of equal-ops embarrassment for both genders.

Sky Movies

Uneven and with a pretty even hit:miss gag ratio, there is still not-for-Nan fun to be had here.

This is London

Maggie Carey's feature film debut is full of lazy shots, duff lines and dodgy acting. But it also contains fresh ideas and hilarious gags.

The List

It has heart and intelligence to offset its more raucous moments and looks destined for cult appeal.

October 4, 2013

A cast of familiar and frequently funny TV notables makes The To Do List a sweet prospect, but this tepid, oddly pitched teen comedy is unlikely to get anyone off.

Little White Lies

The great Audrey Plaza is let down by weak material in this mirthless female-centric gross-out comedy.

Enjoyable teen sex comedy that gains points for its female perspective and features both strong comic performances and a decent script, despite some of the gags being a bit hit-and-miss.

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

The To Do List is an American teenage sex comedy set in 1993, which may have been the last year in which any of the cast members could have convincingly passed for a teenager.

Even as this comedy strains to be goofy and transgressive, it catches us by surprise simply because it dares to explore first-time sexual experiences through female eyes.

Emma Dibdin
Total Film

Carey drops the ball with a script that's both meandering and mean-spirited, not to mention laughter deficient.
