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

When Brandy tells Fiona that Fiona missed the turn, Brandy points forward and continues to point forward. If Fiona had missed the turn, they would have already passed it, so Brandy should be pointing backwards. 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.

A throwback to 1980s sex comedies that has a bit of charm and a few laughs, but just not enough of either. Parks and Recreations' Aubrey Plaza stars as a high school graduate who is sick of being a dorky virgin. She makes a list of sexual experiences and attempts to get through them all before she heads off to college. The film has a fine cast. Besides Plaza (who, I must say, looks far too old to play 18 at this point; I know no one else is 18, either, but most of the others are more convincing), we have Johnny Simmons as the dorky, handsome boy who crushes on her, Scott Porter as the hunky older guy after whom she lusts, Alia Shawkat and Sarah Steele as her best friends, Rachel Bilson as her older sister (whose fiancé, Adam Pally, who was one of the funniest people on television in Happy Endings, is completely wasted), Bill Hader as her boss, Andy Sandberg as a grunge rocker and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Donald Glover as a couple of other guys who went to high school with her. I like all of these people, and most of them have a good moment or two, but there's nothing hilarious. The film is set in 1993, and it's fun to feel my own youth being pandered to.
