The movie was originally called "The Handjob", but the title needed to be changed because the production would have trouble securing locations for the film since people thought they were shooting a porn movie. See more »

Sex is a big deal, but it's also not a big deal. Don't get me wrong, it's a big deal. But it doesn't have to be such a big deal.
No. No, it doesn't.
I guess what I mean is, sometimes sex is just sex.
Yeah, sometimes sex is just sex.

"The To-Do List" is an entirely raunchy, breezy coming-of-age comedy that is anchored with a solid, fearless performance by Aubrey Plaza.
It's an "American Pie" race-to-lose-your-virginity tale that is not only surprisingly sweet, and at times smart, but also pleasantly positive about sex - filtered through a unique female voice and fresh perspective on age- old genre tropes. It's free of the snickering, juvenile gross-out attitudes of the "Pie" films.
The film is uneven, wanders a bit, and sometimes plays like a series of SNL sketches than a full-on film, but is, on occasion, laugh-out-loud funny.
It should get some more love and attention when it arrives on home video & PPV where it is sure to gain a word-of-mouth following.
