Consensus: A lightweight, unambitious comedy, Post Grad features fine actors that can do little with its middling, uninspiring script.

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.

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.

With a formulaic plot and uninspiring dialogue, not even Mr. Mom can help the film stay afloat.

A sadly uneven movie that falls apart with its schlocky third act, and completely undoes (1) a relatable story about an exemplar of the generation of children… More

Matt Saracen is in this. He's awful in it because this movie is awful, but he is there and he is cute.

Very, very and very predictable movie. Nothing special. Something you can skip without regretting.

It was ok, but not something I'd care to watch again.
