“..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]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
