I will admit that my tertiary education days were not wild, well that is you don’t count that one time we suspended a nerd from a balcony by his ankles. I’d love to say that I’m just referencing a Revenge of the Nerds movie here, but no, we really did that. Now nerd-hanging is a very time consuming endeavour, but luckily we also had IRC where you can learn some things you wish you could immediately unlearn.
Back in 1993, people weren’t quite so (un)lucky, which is why Aubrey Plaza has to learn everything, like the weird English custom of teabagging, the hard way. And when I say hard, I’m apparently talking about Bill Hader.
“The To Do List” is a comedy about close friends and a special summer project, loosely inspired by the real-life adventures of first-time writer/director Maggie Carey. Set in 1993, valedictorian Brandy Klark wants to shed her uptight image before college, so she assembles a to do list of all the “activities” she missed out on in high school. Quickly realizing that she’s way out of her depth, Brandy solicits her best friends, older sister and burnt-out boss for their help and advice. If the group is going to complete the list by September they’ll need plenty of imagination and very open minds.
The To Do List will be doing a kegstand in theatres on July 26, 2013.
