Aubrey Plaza gets a backdoor warning in a new clip from The To Do List
Aubrey Plaza is the female version of Michael Cera. She has a very specific character that she can do exceptionally well, but she’s probably not going to stretch too far beyond that. In THE TO DO LIST, she’s playing the same character she plays on ‘Parks and Recreation’, which is the same character she played in SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. And like Cera, I really like the character Aubrey Plaza has established and I’ll see her in anything. This film has been in the can for a while, but it’s going to get a chance in theaters later this month. To get you ready, they’ve released a clip below. And no, it’s not nearly as dirty as the title suggests. THE TO DO LIST stars Aubrey Plaza, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Rachel Bilson, Clark Gregg, Johnny Simmons, Alia Shawkat, Sarah Steele, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader and Donald Glover. Maggie Carrie directed the film from a script she wrote and it’s set to finally hit theaters on July 26th.
THE TO DO LIST official synopsis: “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.
