Above all, The To Do List announces the arrival of Aubrey Plaza, movie star, with a role that takes full advantage of the awkward persona she's now best-known for.

Ultimately, "The To Do List" settles for being intermittently amusing, never living up to the promise of its talented cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The Improper Bostonian

Despite the sometimes childish sight gags, what salvages the movie is a refreshingly adult attitude toward the messy matter of sexuality.

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

One more overly crude teen comedy
Stephen Silver
November 27, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

What Culture
October 30, 2013
The jokes are frequent, rapidly fired, and often sharply written, featuring crude sexual dialogue about everything imaginable from masturbation to states of sexual arousal.

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

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.

Uneven and with a pretty even hit:miss gag ratio, there is still not-for-Nan fun to be had here.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The List
October 4, 2013
It has heart and intelligence to offset its more raucous moments and looks destined for cult appeal.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
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.

I didn't believe any of it.

The great Audrey Plaza is let down by weak material in this mirthless female-centric gross-out comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Matthew Turner
October 3, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
