Cast overview, first billed only:


Brandy Klark (Aubrey Plaza) has just graduated from high school where she excelled in every subject, except real-life sexual education. When her older sister tells her how important it is to be experienced, Brandy writes out a sex to do list for herself for the summer. Her friend Cameron might be the perfect guinea pig while she sets her sights on the popular and sexy Rusty Waters as the ultimate end goal. But once feelings get in the way, it becomes much harder for Brandy to check off the remaining items on her sex to do list. Written by napierslogs

Good material but...
3 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's 1993 in Boise, Idaho. Brandy Klark (Aubrey Plaza) has just graduated from high school as the straight laced valedictorian and a virgin. She has a loose older sister Amber (Rachel Bilson), frank mother (Connie Britton) and an embarrassed father (Clark Gregg). Cameron (Johnny Simmons) is her nerdy friend who is in love with her. Fiona (Alia Shawkat) and Wendy (Sarah Steele) are her slutty best friends. She gets convinced by her sister that she needs to lose her virginity before going to college. She wants to lose it to hot guy Rusty Waters (Scott Porter). So she makes a sexual to-do list. She's working at the pool managed by Willy (Bill Hader) for the summer where Rusty, Derrick (Donald Glover) and Cameron are working.

This is a fine inappropriate coming of age movie from writer/director Maggie Carey. My biggest problem is actually Aubrey Plaza. She's too old to play a teenager. She also plays very sarcastic which takes away from the character. I think either Alia Shawkat or Sarah Steele would be better fit. They have a more innocent persona which would work much better for the character. Aubrey's whole act is low energy sarcasm. It's a better fit for a sarcastic bitter friend with a heart like 'Parks and Recreation'.
