Movie Review: The To Do List

Writer/director Maggie Carey’s ’90s-set The To Do List (C-) is radical only in its gender-bending-premise of a young female character being the one looking to lose her virginity come hell or high water. Alas a wooden central performance by Aubrey Plaza and a sloppy structure that just doesn’t deliver on enough laughs thwarts this limp episodic comedy. Despite its occasional charms, this carnal clap-trap is definitely not a keeper.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
