TRAILER WATCH: Aubrey Plaza Tries to Swipe Her V-Card for a Hot Blonde Fella in THE TO-DO LIST

I often feel like Aubrey Plaza has been in a number of films I've seen before, but she has yet to really stand out to me in any of them. But I have to admit her deadpanned *blank face* is perfection. So much so that I think if Sara Gilbert is too busy doing "The Talk" and all, Plaza would be my second choice to voice Daria in an updated animated movie based on the hi-freakin-larious MTV cartoon from the '90s (which has yet to happen but I have been willing it to for YEARS).

Plaza has a whole new opportunity to wow me-and other audiences--in the upcoming raunchy comedy, THE TO-DO LIST, directed and penned by Maggie Carey (mostly known for writing a few of the "Funny or Die Presents..." episodes on TV). The gist: 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.

Before you get to the trailer below, you should know that these "activities" are really all about performing various sexual acts so that she no longer comes off as a prude. That said, the clip is pretty bawdy but Plaza's deadpan really sells it as she fixates her intentions on a certain blonde fella with washboard abs from the pool. Plus, Stefon Bill Hader is in it and he always rules. Rachel Bilson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Andy Samberg and Connie Britton also appear in the film.

Take a look at the trailer below and share your thoughts below in the comment box.

It could be the light comedy film you're looking for this summer, that isn't titled This Is The End. THE TO-DO LIST hits theaters July 26th.
