Here’s one thing you can count on. Any time a common piece of everyday life lingo is translated into a film, it’s going to be a chick flick you probably don’t want to see. Marketing executives seem to think that women will respond to movie titles with the name of cute little novelty names. They’re pretty smart people, so they’re probably right. Still, this Aubrey Plaza flick The To Do List could’ve been called High School Girls Trying to Get Laid Before College and then girls would not have to drag their boyfriends to go see it when it’s out in theaters. Just saying.
Nevertheless, a chick flick always does bring out the chicks, and that’s a good thing, like the film’s lead Aubrey Plaza, along with her buddy Rachel Bilson and ever perky Jennette McCurdy. You could do worse at your home movie night than having these three lovely ladies running around your digs. Enjoy.
