Maggie, I Wish I’d Never Seen Your Film: “The To Do List”

Predictably, characterization means nothing in a movie as unspeakably raunchy as Maggie Carey’s The To Do List (2013).  Not a trace of insight arises about why the valedictorian virgin here (Aubrey Plaza) decides to experiment with every form of erotic gratification known to man except for gay stuff.  Indeed, none of the major characters is fully believable.

I did get a few laughs from this poorly plotted mess, but everything in it still blurs into one big dirty joke.  In Tulsa, The To Do List lasted no more than two weeks and was never even shown in the second-run, dollar theatres.  Somehow audiences knew to stay away.
