Ultimately, "The To Do List" settles for being intermittently amusing, never living up to the promise of its talented cast.

Despite the sometimes childish sight gags, what salvages the movie is a refreshingly adult attitude toward the messy matter of sexuality.
August 18, 2014
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
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.

"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.

October 30, 2013

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.

October 4, 2013
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.

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.

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