QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A 1990s era high school graduate sets out to experience all sorts of sexual activities, including losing her virginity, before heading off to college.
PLOT:
It's 1993 and Brandy Klark (AUBREY PLAZA) has just graduated from her Boise, Idaho high school. Despite being the valedictorian, she's perhaps best known for still being a virgin, something not lost on her more sexually experienced best friends, Fiona (ALIA SHAWKAT) and Wendy (SARAH STEELE).

When her older sister, Amber (RACHEL BILSON), informs Brandy that her upcoming freshman year at Georgetown will be "one big sexual pop quiz," the high school graduate scraps her pre-college to-do list and replaces it with a progressively escalating list of sexual activities she wishes to experience before her first day of college, even if she doesn't yet know what some of them mean.

And where better to start than the various boys who work at the local swimming pool -- managed by Willy (BILL HADER) -- where she gets a summer job as a lifeguard. Among them is her best friend and fellow incoming Georgetown freshman, Cameron (JOHNNY SIMMONS), who secretly confides in his best friend, Duffy (CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE), about his attraction to Brandy. There's also Derrick (DONALD GLOVER) and a brief interlude with a visiting rock singer, Van (ANDY SAMBERG), but she has her ultimate sight set on hunky college student Rusty (SCOTT PORTER) being the one to deflower her.

With occasional sexual advice from her mom (CONNIE BRITTON) but far less from her conservative judge dad (CLARK GREGG), and being egging on by her friends and sister, Brandy starts plowing through her long list of sexual activities.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
A sex comedy told from a girl's perspective could be enticing to curious kids of both sexes.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive strong crude and sexual content including graphic dialogue, drug and alcohol use, and language - all involving teens.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
