The To Do List Review


Very Good

Even as this comedy strains to be goofy and transgressive, it catches us by surprise simply because it dares to explore first-time sexual experiences through female eyes. And Aubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed) brings her usual sardonic wit to the lead role, merrily offending the more timid moviegoers while making more adventurous fans wish the film went even further.

Plaza plays Brandy, who graduated at the top of her Boise high school class. But with that goal achieved, she wonders if she neglected to prepare properly for university social life, so she makes a summer to-do list of sex-related tasks leading, hopefully, to losing her virginity to the hunky guitar-strumming lifeguard Rusty (Porter). She works with him at the local swimming pool along with her nice-guy best pal Cameron (Simmons), who's of course secretly in love with her. But as Brandy works through the list with the help of her friends (Shawkat and Steele) and her experienced big sister (Bilson), she starts to worry that her emotions are getting in the way.

Thankfully, writer-director Carey refuses to let this turn into a romantic slush-fest, keeping the encounters jagged and often very funny. The script is packed with hilariously squirm-inducing conversations about sex, many involving Brandy's far too helpful mother (Britton). Although her dad (Gregg) and her loser boss (Hader) understandably don't want to know. Meanwhile, when the local guys (Glover and Mintz-Plasse) find out about Brandy's list, they are sure to tick off a few items themselves, as does a visiting rock star (Samberg).

The To Do List - Green Band Trailer


Brandy Clark is a smart, high-achieving though particularly naive high-school graduate whose finding the prospect of a new life at college daunting. Tired of being relentlessly teased for her sexual inexperience, she compiles a list of bedroom adventures she would like to have before beginning her first year as a freshman. However, trying to catch-up with her friends becomes a shame-filled rollercoaster as she attempts to seduce handsome, floppy-haired lifeguard Rusty Waters who she met at her first college party. She manages to lose her head, as well as her top, as she discovers that there's more to having trysts with guys than just getting physical as the much more confusing emotional side comes into it. The question is, will she survive her first year at college, or will this new world of passion and parties drive this straight-laced girl crazy?

The To Do List Trailer


Brandy Clark is an ordinary high school senior who finds herself suffocated under the pressures of pre-college life. As a sexually curious virgin, she is determined to explore the world of bedroom pleasures before starting her first year at college. From the most bizarre to the most unpleasant and unimaginable, she is resolute that she will experience every sexual adventure she's ever heard of and makes a long, colorful list of everything she hopes to err. 'achieve' in the short time she has left as a senior. Locating willing participants doesn't prove too difficult with many members of the opposite sex on a similar quest to her, and her new found promiscuity proves a lot for her anxious parents to handle.

This hilarious new romantic comedy is not like regular Valentine's Day flicks; it's frank and explicit with no room for censorship, just like a normal pre-college teenager. 'The To Do List' has been written and directed by Maggie Carey in her first feature length movie and its set to be released bang on time on February 14th 2013. Prepare to cover your ears and eyes as you venture into that world you thought (and hoped) you'd long forgotten. 

Starring: Connie Britton, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Bilson, Andy Samberg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Alia Shawkat, Clark Gregg, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Scott Porter, Nolan Gould, Donald Glover, Adam Pally, Sarah Steele & Lauren Lapkus.

Excellent
Writer-director Holofcener cleverly keeps the emotions gurgling right under the surface of this engaging interpersonal comedy. It's more about smiles than laughing out loud, but the superior cast members get terrific characters to play with.

Kate and Alex (Keener and Platt) are socially active New Yorkers, supporting charities and trying to help their feisty teen daughter (Steele) understand what's important. But Kate's beginning to feel guilty about their work; they buy furniture from families with recently deceased relatives and resell it at a profit. This is taken to the extreme as they wait for their aging neighbour (Guilbert) to die so they can annex her apartment, and Kate and Alex struggle with how to interact with her very different granddaughters (Hall and Peet).

Kate and her husband Alex own a trendy furniture store on Fifth Avenue; the products they buy come from estate sales. This is just the start of one of the many problems Kate is developing with her way of life. Materialism seems to have become a big part of her life and it also appears her way of life has rubbed off on her teenage daughter. Trying to balance a work and homelife with her husband is also taking a toll - not to mention their old next door neighbour whose flat they want to develop.

Spanglish Review


Excellent
In the world of James L. Brooks' Spanglish, the human act of communication is in a shambles. A deteriorating American family, presented with a pleasant sadness, moves through each day short on personal fulfillment and miles apart emotionally. The result is often uncomfortable and completely gratifying.

Adam Sandler and Téa Leoni, actors best known for their comic energy, build the foundation for this awkward clan using more dramatic skills than comedic. They are John and Deborah Clasky, married, parents of two, living high on the hog, but completely unhappy opposites. As their emotional distance lengthens, enter Flor (Paz Vega), the new family maid, an assured Mexican immigrant who speaks not one word of English. With Flor's presence, and that of her bilingual daughter Cristina (Shelbie Bruce), the language gap widens. But will the communication gap ever close?

Spanglish Review


Weak

The fact that "Spanglish" is narrated through the contrivance of a college application letter is typical of the calculating, false tone of writer-director James L. Brooks' latest Oscar-baiting human-condition dramedy.

This letter, written by a teenager girl (Shelbie Bruce) who tells the story of her immigrant mother's honor and determination, is all too carefully measured with pangs of empathy, familiarity and humor -- which may make for a well-written essay but feels manipulative and wholly deliberate on film.

Beginning with a flashback set in Mexico, the girl's mom sneaks the two of them across the border and becomes a rift-healing, down-to-earth, "no hablo inglés" Mary Poppins maid for a harried yuppie family in upscale Brentwood.
