M'eh. Things to Do had its moments that were interesting and funny and charming. But largely, it was slow-paced and didn't seem to go anywhere. The revelations of the main character seem to come out of nowhere. The backstory of the character is largely irrelevant, as were many of the plot points. And while there is some character development, the main character was just so dull that you hardly noticed when a relationship was built.
Vaguely reminiscent at times of cult classics like Office Space and Napoleon Dynamite yet retaining a deadpan sensibility all its own, Things to Do works more effectively as a pure comedy than as a story of personal growth.
I absolutely loved this movie. An independant Canadian film that features great underground Canadian Indie music as well as a great plot combine to make it very under-rated. It starts off tragic, but procedes into very comedic, at times very random. See it.
Underrated and awesome. Full of indie-movie cliches, but I forgive them of most of 'em. Borrows heavily from "The Graduate" and "Eagle vs Shark". The soundtrack is the best of the year. A much better soundtrack than the overrated "Juno" one.
It starts out pretty stupidly. Kind of early at 24 to have a list of "Things to do", but among the things these two do is skydive, hold a prom, collect balls off the school roof, etc. -- all in the search of the meaning of their lives.
