By Rich Heldenfels Published: September 30, 2013

The official word on "The To Do List," with Aubrey Plaza; 53 percent on Rotten Tomatoes:

Easy A meets Superbad in the raunchy and irreverent comedy THE TO DO LIST, available Nov. 19th on Blu-ray(tm), DVD and digital from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film is written and directed by Funny or Die veteran Maggie Carey and features an ensemble cast, including Aubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed, TV's "Parks and Recreation"), Johnny Simmons (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Bill Hader (TV's "SNL"), Alia Shawkat (TV's "Arrested Development"), Scott Porter (TV's "The Good Wife"), Rachel Bilson (TV's "Hart of Dixie"), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick Ass 2), Andy Samberg (Grown Ups 2), Donald Glover (TV's "Community"), Connie Britton (TV's "Nashville") and Clark Gregg (The Avengers, Iron Man). In this all-star film, Type A overachiever (Plaza) comes up with a "to do list," featuring all the risqué extra-curricular activities she missed out on in high school and wants to complete before starting college. Hilarious bonus features on both the Blu-ray and DVD include deleted scenes, commentary, a gag reel, a.k.a. "The Re-do List," as well as two featurettes. The "Maggie Carey: Directing her To-Do List" featurette highlights the director's personal connection to the film and the comedic talent starring in it, and the "Dirty Mouth" featurette is a big, raunchy montage of some of the film's key moments. 

Synopsis: 

Class of '93 valedictorian Brandy Klark (Aubrey Plaza) wants to get "educated" before she goes off to college, so she assembles a "to do list" of all the sexual activities she missed out on in high school. Quickly realizing that she's way out of her league, Brandy solicits her best friends, older sister (Rachel Bilson) and burnt-out boss (Bill Hader) for their help and advice. As Brandy crams for her sexual finals, a supporting cast of horny misfits- an orally-challenged classmate (Donald Glover), a grunge-singing doofus (Andy Samberg) - eagerly offer their assistance and shocking mayhem ensues...

Written and Directed by Maggie Carey, THE TO DO LIST was produced by Jennifer Todd, Brian Robbins and Sharla Sumpter Bridgett. The executive producers are Mark Gordon, Maggie Carey, Bill Hader, Tracy McGrath, Greg Walter and Tom Lassally.

The official word on "Girl Most Likely," which has Kristen Wiig but a 19 rating on Rotten Tomatoes:  

Shattered dreams lead to laugh-out-loud moments in Girl Most Likely, arriving on Digital and Video on Demand October 22 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film will be available on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital HD UltraViolet) and DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) two weeks later on November 5. Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) leads an all-star cast in this hilarious, warmhearted comedy about a once-promising playwright who returns home to her wildly unpredictable mother and a house full of oddballs to try and get her career – and life – back on track. The film features Golden Globe winner Annette Bening (Best Actress in a Motion Picture, The Kids Are Alright, 2010), Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary), Darren Criss (TV’s “Glee”) and Bob Balaban (Moonrise Kingdom).

After her career and relationship both hit the skids, Imogene (Wiig) is forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric family, including her gambling-addicted mother (Bening) and her mom’s oddball new boyfriend (Dillon). Adding further insult to injury, her bedroom is being rented out to a pop-star impersonator (Criss). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family along with her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be strong enough to get the hell away from them.

 From the directors of American Splendor and The Nanny Diaries, Girl Most Likely arrives on Blu-ray Disc and DVD with bonus materials that consist of multiple featurettes, including a “making of,” deleted scenes and a gag reel and will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
