The To Do List
In case you missed the memo (called Sex and the City), we ladies like our sex comedies as raunch as the next guy. And The To Do List, this weekend’s entry into the “losing it” subgenre of sex comedies, is just the kind of raunch we love most — not too graphic or demeaning, just enough to make you not want to watch next to your parents. If, like the movie’s control freak valedictorian Brandy Klark (Aubrey Plaza), you don’t want to enter the theater without doing your homework first, read on for the 10 essential things you should know about this weekend’s new release:

Sound the alarms, beat the drums, and for goodness sake make the popcorn! The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are coming on SUNDAY APRIL 14TH AT 9 PM. Let’s hope the all-caps got your attention.

This time we’re going to be speaking with Aubrey Plaza and Scott Porter about their staring roles in The To Do List!
Guys, this is looks good. Like Mean Girls good. Immediately following the announcement that it would premiere February 14, 2013, the To Do List trailer ticked off all the things we want to see in a teen movie. Things like Bill Hader, Donald Glover, Alia Shawkat, Rachel Bilson, and skorts. Most importantly, the To Do List has Parks and Rec‘s Aubrey Plaza as the goody-goody nerdlinger protagonist, who tries to put some notches on her belt before going off to college…with hilarious consequences! It goes without saying there will be hilarious consequences, right? So go on and watch the (sort of NSFW) trailer. It perfectly fulfills all our teen comedy needs. Needs like:
