THE TO DO LIST is a US teen comedy about a high school graduate who makes a 'to do list' of sex acts she wishes to perform before going to college. It is rated 15 for frequent strong sex references, strong language and sex.

In one scene the young graduate masturbates a man, without any explicit detail. After this, she appears to have some semen on her hand. In another scene she is interrupted whilst performing fellatio. Again, no explicit detail of the sexual act is shown but she subsequently spits what appears to be semen from her mouth. There are some other strong sex scenes, without any nudity or strong sexual detail. For example, a couple are shown 'dry humping' on the floor.

The film contains over thirty uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'). There is also moderate and mild bad language.

THE TO DO LIST also contains some soft drug use and alcohol abuse when teens are shown playing drinking games. There is some smoking which is neither glamorised not promoted.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
