<i>The To Do List</i>: Sex and the Single High School Girl

Since the pop culture nostalgia wheel spins in 20-year cycles, the wave of '90s nostalgia we're currently experiencing has arrived right on schedule, with such period remnants as the Backstreet Boys, Boy Meets World and even House Party washing up on our 21st-century shores to appeal to that era's now grown-up teenagers and whatever offspring they may have since spawned. Maggie Carey's feature filmmaking debut The To Do List cannily capitalizes on the "We Love the '90s" trend, setting viewers down in the bygone year of 1993 and telling a story that's essentially a female-driven version of the end-of-the-millennium hit, American Pie with Aubrey Plaza in the Jason Biggs role as the last American virgin who spends her senior year of high school pursuing an independent study in sex education.
