Recent college graduate Ryden Malby (Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel) has just survived four years of higher education, but when she's forced to move back into her childhood home, the stress of dealing with her eccentric family, landing a job, and finding the right guy leaves her with precious little time to ponder where her life is truly heading. Shrek and Shark Tale's co-director Vicky Jenson takes the helm for a comedy co-starring Michael Keaton, Carol Burnett, Zach Gilford, and Rodrigo Santoro, and produced by Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock in collaboration with Joe Medjuck and Jeff… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Vicky Jenson has a sitcom script on her hands and proceeds accordingly."
‑ Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader
"Bledel brings a sweet, steady presence, but this sort of minor project is a step backwards. It's high time she graduated on to bigger and better things."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Ho-hum stuff."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"It acts like the audience knows nothing about how humans behave or find jobs or keep them or have romantic relationships or exist in families."
‑ Dave White,
"Vicky Jenson's attempt at a go-getting romcom is a tragic underachiever on the com front: the rent-a-quirk characters feel like a Little Miss Sunshine tribute act gone wrong."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Post-Grad finds Alexis Bledel sinking into the quicksand of typecasting, playing nearly the same role she perfected during seven seasons as the ambitious Rory on Gilmore Girls."
‑ Joe Coscarelli,
"Excessive niceness may be an unfair charge to lob at a movie, but Post Grad is so swaddled in good intentions that it's like taking a very short journey cushioned on all sides by air bags. That are stuffed with cotton candy."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Like festive icing on a plain vanilla cake, a fun cast and offbeat humor hugely increase the palatability of Post Grad."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Director Vicky Jenson has infused Post Grad with all the subtlety and substance of a garden-variety sitcom..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"he try-hard quirkiness and clunky screenwriting starts to grate after just a few minutes. By the final act, it's not unlike having bamboo splinters inserted under your fingernails."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Alexis Bledel plays a Ms. Sunshine who's fresh out of college and unable to find work, and thus -- conveniently for the uninspired makers of this dismayingly conservative dramedy -- she's temporarily bunking back home"
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The story that writer Kelly Fremon wants to tell in Post Grad -- recent college grad strikes out at finding a job, moves back home with her wacky family and finds true love -- is pretty tired."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"With a formulaic plot and uninspiring dialogue, not even Mr. Mom can help the film stay afloat."
‑ Alaina O'Connor, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"There's certainly a lot of material there but none of the comedy works in any way at all and Keaton is a dead zone at the centre of the film."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"A clumsily scripted, misfiring affair."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
