  • A high-school valedictorian makes a list of all of the sexual acts she wants to try before college, and seeks out the right partners to help expedite her sex education in this semiautobiographical comedy from writer/director Maggie Carey. The year is 1993. Brandy Klark (Aubrey Plaza) is the brainy teen who's always home studying while her friends are out partying. Now, as graduation looms, she starts to realize just how much fun she's been missing out on. Of course Brandy's grades are impressive, but how is a girl who's barely even kissed a guy supposed to handle the freedom of college life? In order to get a leg up, Brandy compiles a list of all of the erotic extracurricular activities she's missed out on and attempts to cross them off one by one. When the task proves more demanding than the previously chaste teen had anticipated, she rounds up a crew of her closest friends to help undertake some hilariously unconventional college prep. Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Rachel Bilson, and Andy Samberg co-star.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Plaza's deadpan comic timing...is ideal for the role....Maggie Carey has conceived a comedy with a fresh, no-nonsense lead character..."
    USA Today

    "Director/writer Maggie Carey's choice of era adds pop-nostalgia snap to her Gen-X twist on the kind of lusty antics that are usually the purview of male cinematic debauchery..."
    Roger Ebert

    "This movie is smarter and better acted and just plain funnier than most of its predecessors in the my-first-time genre, no matter which sex is losing what."
    New York Times

    "Liberated from her signature snark, Plaza tackles the awkwardness of fledgling foreplay with screwball abandon."
    A.V. Club

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Maggie Carey scores a smashing feature debut as writer and director ....By serving the raunch straight up and, best, making it about a girl."
    Rolling Stone

    "This maximum-raunch sex comedy stays buoyant and likable throughout thanks to the winning presence of Aubrey Plaza in the lead."

    "Aubrey Plaza, from PARKS AND RECREATION, has fierce, dark popping eyes that she uses to make Brandy obsessive, romantic, and angelic." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Maggie Careys feature debut boasts a crack ensemble cast, led by Aubrey Plaza, that evocatively captures the carefree elation of youthful summer romance. "
    Hollywood Reporter
