The good news is that, after something like a year of promotion, The To Do List, the teen sex comedy from writer/director Maggie Carey starring Aubrey Plaza, is out this week. The bad news is, it’s not very good (in short: too long, too formulaic, only intermittently funny). But don’t worry — Aubrey is great in it, as she is in pretty much everything. And if you decide to take a pass on this one, we’ve done a bit of a Funny or Die dig to find some of her funniest moments that you might not have seen.
The great Jeff Garlin (who plays Plaza’s dad in the wonderful Safety Not Guaranteed) wrote and directed this absurd two-minute quickie co-starring Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon). It is, as most things are at that length, a one-joke premise. But watch as the joke is stretched out as long as is humanly possible, and then longer, and then a few seconds beyond that.
