Don’t go to The To Do List expecting a comedy genre-buster along the lines of Bridesmaids. Rather it’s more of a one-joke repeater set in the hot Boise, Idaho, summer of 1993. — Linda Barnard, Toronto Star


Does Carey go too far? Duh. But why gripe when you can’t stop laughing? — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The To Do List” is a romantic comedy with no romance and little comedy, but with an ugliness of spirit that’s surprising and unrelenting. — Mick La Salle, San Francisco Chronicle

“The To Do List” doesn’t reinvent the wheel; we all know the “summer that changed everything” trope. But it’s startling when you realize how rare it is to see a girl chasing sexual experience so doggedly – and with such a lighthearted tone. — Sara Stewart, New York Post

When I first wrote the headline for this review, I accidentally wrote, THE DO-DO LIST. I have never been so right. — Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central

First time feature writer/director Maggie Carey has crafted a genuinely funny and refreshing female teen sex comedy. — Alicia Malone, IGN Movies
