Writer/director Maggie Carey's "The To Do List," opening next month, is a comedy concerning a dweeby virgin (Aubrey Plaza, basically a female Max Fischer) who decides to become sexually experienced before leaving for college. Thankfully, it doesn't shy away from the dirtiness of old school sex comedies (informed, somewhat, by its 1993 setting) and the entire movie is a wild, oddly sweet coming-of-age with an emphasis on the coming. For just how raunchy this movie can get, a new red band trailer gives you a good idea. Get More »
Aubrey Plaza is well on her way to becoming a national treasure. Her portrayal of April Ludgate, whose hipster sarcasm and stoicism hides a big, huge heart, is one of the best things about "Parks and Recreation." She's making quite a name for herself in the world of indie film, too, with acclaimed turns in last year's "Safety Not Guaranteed" and good buzz on this summer's "The To Do List."
Accolade-givers are taking notice of her talents as well, as she's being honored this week at CinemaCon in Las Vegas with the Breakthrough Performer of the Year award. And then there's that stunt she pulled at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards that left even Will Ferrell at a loss for words ... truly, there's no predicting where — or what — this lady will do next.
You know what? Aubrey should continue her takeover of Hollywood by remaking every movie ever made. Well, at least five, anyway. You've got to start somewhere. See below.
Well, that was unexpected. It seems like Aubrey Plaza, star of TV's "Parks and Recreation" and the upcoming "The To-Do List" checked one very unique task off her list last night: Stage-bombing Will Ferrell in the middle of his acceptance speech for the Comedic Genius Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
Attendees were just as surprised by the unscripted moment as audience members and Ferrell himself.
Tonight's MTV Movie Awards got the tweeters tweeting — mostly to make fun of everybody, but whatevs, that's cool.
Fat Amy Rebel Wilson at the helm, zingers were bound to be zung. And zung they were. And they were. Who caught the lion's share of the interwebs' special brand of vitriol?
Well, since it's Hollywood, no one was safe, so we'll let you decide. Here are the some of the snappiest e-snaps of the night! Who said it best? Get More »
While the "Anchorman" star was making the A-listers in the room LOL with his speech, the "Parks and Recreation" star — with the name of her August film "The To Do List" scrolled across her chest — jumped onstage and tried to wrestle the statue out of his hand. While it seemed like it may have been a gag, MTV News can confirm that the moment was anything but planned. Get More »
In the August movie, Plaza plays a high school student wanting to check some sexual life experiences off her bucket list before graduating and hitting the college dating scene. Somewhere along the way, she spends some of the film, well, loving herself, and she had to go into a bit of a fantasy world in order to shoot the self-love scene in front of the movie's crew.

If this doesn't get you to invest in a frosty cold can of pineapple juice, we don't know what will.
MTV's Sneak Peek Week continued as Aubrey Plaza and Scott Porter introduced an exclusive clip from this summer's must-see romantic comedy, "The To Do List."
Featuring an all-star comedy cast including Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Sarah Steele, Rachel Bilson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Scott Porter, Andy Samberg, Connie Britton and Clark Gregg, "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 Clark 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. "The To Do List" will hit theaters on Aug. 16.
Check out the clip above and be sure to stay tuned all week for more sneak peeks of your favorite movies of the summer, and don't forget about the MTV Movie Awards, starting at 9 p.m. Eastern on Sunday!

'80s pop star Kylie Minogue has already been cast (we're assuming as the mom, which makes us feel old). [The Wrap] Get More »
