The most interesting thing about 'The To Do List' is the fact that Aubrey Plaza isn't a very good actress. No, I shouldn't say that - she isn't what we expect. Truthfully, I don't know if there is another performer quite like her on the scene. She is sardonic and snide, but then incredibly vulnerable. Neither this nor that. She is, dare I say it, something of an individual. More strikingly, she is, at times during 'The To Do List,' among the more accurate portrayals of young womanhood in mainstream American cinema.
This may make 'The To Do List' sound like some sort of heavy film, but believe me, it isn't. It's business model is to do for 'American Pie' what 'Bridesmaids' did for 'The Hangover.' It is meant to be a lewd, but still charming exploration of first sexual encounters from a woman's point of view. "Sex is a big deal, but it's also no big deal," is the surprisingly lucid thesis at the heart of this movie. And, in line with that contradiction, 'The To Do List' is a good movie, but it's also not a good movie.

Before she goes to college, a virgin overachiever decides to make a list of all the sexual activities she wants to bang out by summer's end.
Last night at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, something happened that was surprising even by the usually-unpredictable ceremony's standards. As Will Ferrell accepted his Comedic Genius Award,'Parks and Recreation' star Aubrey Plaza interrupted him, tried to steal away the award, and created her very own controversial Kanye Moment, getting kicked out of the show by MTV producers. Watch the drama unfold after the break!

Aubrey Plaza plays the deadpan but adorable April Ludgate on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation,' and you may have first taken notice of the actress in Judd Apatow's 'Funny People' (in which she is a funny person, obviously), but in today's Way Back When, we take a look at Plaza's roles before she became famous.
You may know actor Mark Webber from indie flicks like 'Good Dick' and 'Broken Flowers,' and the not-so-indie 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,' but Webber has been slowly making his way behind the camera in recent years.

This isn't your typical to-do list with laundry and groceries and getting your hair figured out. Nope, Aubrey Plaza's 'The To Do List' features a very different, very naughty sort of list. Check out this red band trailer for the film, which hits theaters on Valentine's Day next year.
