Consensus: The To Do List may play things disappointingly safe given its rather daring premise, but writer-director Maggie Carey's sure hand -- and Aubrey Plaza's performance -- keep the laughs coming.

Not since the schmaltzy Bucket List has there been a more blatant example of checklist comedy than the ultra-raunchy The To Do List.

The To Do List settles for surface and cartoony rather than deep and heartfelt.

Mixing Gloria Steinem and gross-out gags with messy aplomb, first-time writer/director Maggie Carey has created a landmark romcom.

It's good-natured and raucous, with many scenes that are just sketched but a few that are truly funny.

By proudly wearing its "otherness" (a word I use ironically) on its sleeve, The To Do List feels fresh and strange and wondrously new. It shouldn't, but it does.

Above all, The To Do List announces the arrival of Aubrey Plaza, movie star, with a role that takes full advantage of the awkward persona she's now best-known for.

Many of The To Do List's jokes have this first-draft, is-that-all-there-is? quality.

"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.

Ultimately, "The To Do List" settles for being intermittently amusing, never living up to the promise of its talented cast.
