    Does Carey go too far? Duh. But why gripe when you can't stop laughing? show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    Like the fumbling around of first-time sex, The To Do List has its enjoyable moments but doesn't exactly feel like a peak experience. show more

    The To Do List is sex-obsessed, to be sure, but it's a chick flick, too. And in what it says about women (or girls) and men (or boys) and what they want, maybe it's a movie for us all. show more

    Everyone thinks sex is easy to do, but that doesn’t mean they’re good at it. The To Do List is exactly that type of movie, one that thinks a sex-obsessed version of a John Hughes comedy by its very nature is hilarious. It’s not, but there are still some things to like here. show more

    Justin Lowe The Hollywood Reporter

    Making a convincingly assured feature debut, TV and web series writer-director Carey's script nails the raunchy-sweet tone required to bring off this R-rated teen-centered comedy with remarkable charm and relatability, mining a rich vein of girl-centered sexual curiosity and experimentation "loosely inspired" by personal experience. show more

    Much like Brandy, “List” tries and tries and tries to get the job done, but frankly, the satisfaction only ever comes in spurts. show more

    I’d like to see a sequel about her freshman year at college, please. There were still a few items on that list left unchecked. show more

    The To Do List is a funny movie, but only if you’re not easily offended. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    In its exuberantly smutty way, The To Do List is a revolutionary development: a teen sex comedy where the girls get to play nasty and the boys stand around looking vaguely terrified. show more

    A couple of hours used up. I\'m surprised it has a 64% critic score.... I just hope that the teens ********** this movie would use better discretion with their lives.

    This movie was deplorable. The biggest waste of money...We walked out soon after it started. The sexual aspect of the movie was disgusting!

    It wasn\'t funny and had a ridiculous plot - need I say more? A huge waste of talent that just showed up to collect a paycheck!
