The To Do List review

A salty, raucous but honest female take on Superbad , starring Parks And Recreation standout Aubrey Plaza. The omens were good, but writer/director Maggie Carey drops the ball with a script that’s both meandering and mean-spirited, not to mention laughter deficient.

Plaza is miscast as Type A honours student Brandy, who puts together a pre-college sexual bucket list with the help of her more liberated sis (a game Rachel Bilson).

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.
