“..wide-ranging genre appeal could see this teen comedy reach break-out proportions..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..unfortunately, wastes its opportunity and its talented players for a teen farce that's both unfunny and unsexy..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
4 of 5

“..this movie is smarter and better acted and just plain funnier than most of its predecessors in the my-first-time genre..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
“..quick and messy, fitfully pleasurable, full of promise but not quite adept at getting everyone off..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
“..outrageously funny highs amid lots of so-so filler, but stays buoyant and likable throughout thanks to the winning presence of "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza in the lead..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3.5 of 5

“..one of the best comedies of the year and one that may surprise just how easily it keeps the laughs in you coming..”
by David Crow [Den of Geek]
2.5 of 4

“..it's just one of the inspired choices that subverts the typical gender roles and declares that boys don't need to be the only ones having fun in an ultra-crass comedy..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
2.5 of 4

“..in that, "The To Do List" is neither supergood nor superbad, but passable doesn't exactly raise the bar..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..does Carey go too far? Duh. But why gripe when you can't stop laughing?..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

LATEST REVIEWS

UNFINISHED BUSINESS :

“..a jumble of half-baked ideas, none particularly interesting..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

CHAPPIE :

“..Blomkamp's ideas feel depleted this time, dulled by repetition and other cinematic droids that stretch from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey to Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

FAULTS :

“..Winstead is one of the most intuitive actors of her generation, and though her impressive range is easy to spot, it's her elasticity that makes her so rewarding to watch..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN :

“..Sam Worthington and Jim Sturgess are solid as two of the four kidnappers, but Swedish director Daniel Alfredson pushes the caper button too many times..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OCTOBER GALE :

“..the material is not exceptional, but Ms. Clarkson always is. She's that rare actress over 50 who seems to land a lot of the juicy roles her younger competitors covet..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
