An 18-year-old goody two-shoes (Aubrey Plaza) resolves to become sexually experienced before going away to college, setting out on her mission as though preparing a science-fair project. This raunchy teen comedy is novel insofar as it recasts familiar gross-out gags from a female perspective; otherwise it’s basically an American Pie knockoff, complete with predigested life lessons and telegraphed set pieces about sexual embarrassment. The other gimmick is that it takes place in the early 90s, so there are lots of dumb jokes about VHS tapes and other outmoded technology. The cast features many familiar faces from network TV, including Bill Hader, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Donald Glover, Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, and Rachel Bilson; Maggie Carey directed her own script.
