The To Do ListAubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed) tries to get a different kind of education before college in the comedy movie The To Do List.

Plaza plays Brandy Klark, the class of 1993 valedictorian who feels like she’s missed out on much of high school because she was too busy studying. Before she goes to college, Brandy wants to get educated about sex and makes a to do list.

When she realizes she’s out of her league, she solicits her best friends, older sister (Rachel Bilson, TV”s Hart of Dixie) and burnt-out boss (Bill Hader, Men in Black 3) for help, and gets assistance from two horny misfits: an orally challenged classmate (Donald Glover, TV’s Community) and grunge-singing doofus (Andy Samberg, Celeste & Jesse Forever).

The R-rated movie was only released in limited theaters, grossing $3.5 million. Critics gave it mixed reviews, with New Yorker‘s David Denby calling it “good-natured and raucous,” but Empire Magazine‘s Olly Richards saying the film’s “a muddle.”

Both the DVD and Blu-ray contain these special features:

  • deleted scenes
  • commentary with first-time feature film writer/director Maggie Carey (TV’s Funny or Die Presents) and Bill Hader, her real-life husband
  • a gag reel called “The Re-do List”
  • and two featurettes:
    • “Maggie Carey: Directing Her To-Do List”
    • and “Dirty Mouth,” which highlights all the naughty words or phrases in the film in one raunchy montage
  • digital copy through UltraViolet.
