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

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's good-natured and raucous, with many scenes that are just sketched but a few that are truly funny.

It's refreshing to see a movie aspire to a little more than just raiding the cliche bin.

Plaza proves she can handle heading up a movie and doing something different than playing the smoky, punk alt girl fantasy

ScreenRant

Several story and comedy beats are derivative, but scenes of thoughtful insight are frequent enough for The To Do List to offer more than just brainless laughs.

Film Threat

The To Do List is not just a hard R sex comedy, but also an important player in film diversification.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

While the movie is loaded with lewd attempts to shock, the most radical thing about The To Do List is that it is a sex-positive, strongly female take on the Losing It genre...

Vulture

By proudly wearing its "otherness" (a word I use ironically) on its sleeve, The To Do List feels fresh and strange and wondrously new. It shouldn't, but it does.

CultureCatch

Director Maggie Cary, instead of raising the bar of farce to the heights, has lowered it to the depths of the pigsty. She's proven that the gals can roll about in the mud just as well as the guys can, but to what end?

Hilarious, but teen sex comedy has lots of raunch, drinking.

Carey's celebratory approach to bawdy one-liners marries form with content.

Even when the jokes don't land, the sheer likability of the cast keeps the audience engaged.

The film is raunchy, but not vulgar, and until an unnecessarily preachy climactic moment, very funny.
