The To Do List


Bonnie Osborne / CBS Films

Directed by: Maggie Carey
Written by: Maggie Carey

The jokes are raunchy and the characters wear skorts, but what is quietly revolutionary about this comedy is that it’s about a teenage girl (!) who wants to have sex (!!) but who isn’t about having a magical first time (!!!). All she wants is to have a pleasurable experience the first time she has intercourse, which is a refreshing approach. Nothing about the young female protagonist (played with a meticulous straight face by Aubrey Plaza) changes just by dint of having had a penis in her vagina: a revelation. —AL
