  • Eric Kohn

    In "Adventureland" and this summer's "The Way Way Back," disillusioned teens have worked through their issues in the weeks leading up to college by taking on quirky summer jobs. However, Carey's wacky sensibilities retain a notably fresh quality by using the same framing device as an excuse to bat around one funny idea after another. The story transcends the derivative scenario through a noticeable lack of verbal censorship.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    This movie is smarter and better acted and just plain funnier than most of its predecessors in the my-first-time genre, no matter which sex is losing what.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    I’d like to see a sequel about her freshman year at college, please. There were still a few items on that list left unchecked.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A summer-adventure comedy, and its tone is fairly synthetic, yet it gets major props for giving us the first movie heroine who is clueless and easy in such a hardcore way.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    Making a convincingly assured feature debut, TV and web series writer-director Carey's script nails the raunchy-sweet tone required to bring off this R-rated teen-centered comedy with remarkable charm and relatability, mining a rich vein of girl-centered sexual curiosity and experimentation "loosely inspired" by personal experience.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Maybe someday there will be a better commercial comedy about a girl taking charge of her sexual education, but for now, this is the only one we’ve got, and it’s a filthy-fun charmer.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Anything men can do women can do dirtier, funnier, fresher, since distaff raunchiness shows no signs of going stale and isn't contained to Melissa McCarthy.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The To Do List is sex-obsessed, to be sure, but it's a chick flick, too. And in what it says about women (or girls) and men (or boys) and what they want, maybe it's a movie for us all.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The movie is pleasingly vulgar and, although there's no nudity, the whole thing is about sex.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The To Do List is a funny movie, but only if you’re not easily offended.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Does Carey go too far? Duh. But why gripe when you can't stop laughing?

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    In its exuberantly smutty way, The To Do List is a revolutionary development: a teen sex comedy where the girls get to play nasty and the boys stand around looking vaguely terrified.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Cory Everett

    What really sets this film apart from nearly every other teenage sex comedy ever made, from "Porky's" to "American Pie" to "Superbad," is that this isn't about some dude trying to get laid.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    So many “lose my virginity over the summer” comedies, from “American Pie” to “Superbad,” “Can’t Hardly Wait” to “Girl Next Door.” But aside from the hilarious “Twilight Saga,” how many have told that torrid tale from the girl’s point of view? The To Do List is a summer romantic comedy dedicated to rectifying that imbalance in a single stroke.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • David Denby

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

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The To Do List feels fresh and strange and wondrously new. It shouldn’t, but it does.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    This is definitely a formula movie, lovingly and even obsessively so, made by someone who obviously enjoyed “American Pie” and numerous other raunchy-sweet teen sex comedies of the ’90s, and wished they existed for girls. Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    This rare femme-centric addition to the loss-of-virginity canon (dominated by the likes of “Porky’s,” “Risky Business” and “American Pie”) hits its fair share of outrageously funny highs amid lots of so-so filler, but stays buoyant and likable throughout thanks to the winning presence of “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza in the lead.

    Variety Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The film’s as clumsy yet earnest as a nervous first-timer, groping gracelessly in the dark for ecstasy and meaning.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Like the fumbling around of first-time sex, The To Do List has its enjoyable moments but doesn't exactly feel like a peak experience.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    A certain sloppiness prevents The To Do List from entering the female coming-of-age pantheon of "Sixteen Candles," "Clueless" and "Mean Girls." Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The one thing The To Do List lacks is emotion. Carey is wise not to let the movie get bogged down by too much drama, but Brandy’s scientific approach to losing her virginity makes her seem almost robotic. That being said, it’s an amusing twist that the most emotional characters are Cameron and Brandy’s father.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    There’s plenty of talk about sex — even from Brandy’s supportive mom (Connie Britton), who offers her lubricant — but not much nudity or consequence. In The To Do List, sex is just another dubious achievement to outgrow.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Uber-raunchy but pretty interesting as sex comedies go.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    Our teenage years are so overwrought with emotion; not to put them in play at all makes Brandy feel like little more than a cipher for Plaza’s deadpan dark humor. And that’s pleasurable enough for a quick fling, but hardly the foundation of a lasting relationship.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Like first sex, writer-director Maggie Carey's debut feature, The To Do List, is quick and messy, fitfully pleasurable, full of promise but not quite adept at getting everyone off.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • William Goss

    Much like Brandy, “List” tries and tries and tries to get the job done, but frankly, the satisfaction only ever comes in spurts. Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This thin, floppy comedy never quite became the high-spirited summer sex romp it clearly set out to be. I haven’t quite figured out yet why The To Do List doesn’t work, when so many elements within it seem to.

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Writer/director Carey clearly has some talent, and she and Plaza deserve credit for never pulling their comedic punches. They’re all in. Problem is, it’s mostly a bluff.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The To Do List is neither supergood nor superbad, but passable doesn't exactly raise the bar.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    There's a potentially innovative teen comedy in here somewhere, but it's surrounded by one that's much duller.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    There’s a strain of gross-out humor—most bodily fluids make cameos—that doesn’t mesh well with the rest of the movie. But more bothersome is a tendency The To Do List shares with its heroine: mistaking checking items off a list for progress.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    Essentially the film aims to trade in the awkwardness of teen sexuality, but too often settles for the gross-out gag instead.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Emma Dibdin

    There are moments of sweetness and spontaneity with her BFFs (Alia Shawkat, Sarah Steele) but not enough to fill the hole where the film’s soul should be.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    A few laughs.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Maggie Carey, the writer and director, has plenty to say about life on the cusp of womanhood, but never quite works out a way to make her points without getting her characters to recite them verbatim.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    It’s too busy pleasing itself with lame references to (among others) Eddie Vedder and Hillary Clinton that suggest the film believes old stuff is funny because, you know, it’s old.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Everyone thinks sex is easy to do, but that doesn’t mean they’re good at it. The To Do List is exactly that type of movie, one that thinks a sex-obsessed version of a John Hughes comedy by its very nature is hilarious. It’s not, but there are still some things to like here.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The To Do List is a romantic comedy with no romance and little comedy, but with an ugliness of spirit that's surprising and unrelenting.
