I don't understand the low reviews! I loved this movie, and people seemed to have completely missed the point of the movie. The movie wasn't about life after college, it was about life in general and how there is no certain plan for life, you just have to go with the flow, i loved the crazy family, it would really be boring if the family was just like alexis character wouldn't it! I thought this film was so endearing and held me to the end! I agree it was all over the place but it wasn't hard to follow unless you're stupid. I thought this movie was funny but i felt they weren't trying to be funny, it just was. I really liked the message of this movie, people are so busy trying to make life fit into their little plan that they are missing the fact that this is life, it's happening while you're busy trying to make things happen that just aren't meant to be. Give this movie a try if you liked whip it, martian child, new york minute, uptown girls. I guess people just have different tastes in movies but i really enjoyed it!

I'm not sure why this movie didn't turn out better - it had a great cast and a good storyline. Dealing with what happens after you graduate from college and before your adult life begins is a tricky time period. This movie half heartedly addressed this along with other issues, the other half went for cute romance. The end result? It was too all over the place and ended up a slightly less then average movie.

I liked all of the characters except for the cheesy south american soccer player across the street but hey, his type exists. The female lead (Ryden) is part of a goofy but lovable family of self titled losers: Michale Keaton was the father full of losing money propositions, the mother was low key and the younger oddball brother was cute but the family star was Carol Burnett as the wacky grandmother. Enter the love interest who has been Ryden's best buddy all through college but would like to be more. I'll sum up the movie for you: guy follows girl around like a puppy even after he is kicked a few times, gets mad and goes away, girl realizes what she had and runs after him - the end.

Given all the talent you would think that the movie would work but it falls apart despite some good scenes (anything with Carol Burnett or the derby race). Perhaps different editing would have made all the difference? I cannot recommend this movie unless you are die hard fans of the actors.

Ryden Malby had it all figured out. Make good grades in high school, get a great college scholarship, keep the scholarship, graduate, and then work at the best publishing company in LA. Only things don't go quite as she planned. Instead of getting the job, she ends up unemployed and living with her crazy family once again.

Crazy is NOT an understatement.

Add on to that, a hot Brazillian neighbor and Adam, a guy who's been her best friend since freshman year, yet wants to be more. That's the plot.

The plot, while all over the place, works well for this movie. You're not sure what scheme one of the Malbys will come up with next. Will it be her father's plan to make a fortune online selling belt buckles or perhaps her grandmother (played by the ever amazing Carol Burnett) wanting to take a look at caskets? There's always something going on, with Ryden and her love life, or lack thereof, at the center of it all.

This movie defintely takes you for a ride. One that I really enjoyed.

Having been to college and experienced the post grad feeling I expected a movie that would hit home and be a successful film that all college grads could relate too. I was truly disappointed.

The previews and trailers told a different than what the real movie conveyed. In fact the trailers are far better and in fact had they just made the movie a short and to the point film it would've been a greaat success with 5 stars.

I felt that the relationship between the main character Ryden and her platonic best friend Adam (I think it was) was not seriously developed. The family was just weird which didn't seem to make any sense with the thesis of the movie. In fact during the "featurette" the screenwriter had no prior experience of writing scripts and even admitted to not know a thesis until later in the process.

Instead of trying to tell several different stories and relationships they should've just kept it simple to the point and to a central theme about life after graduating. It was a real downer and I could not recommend this movie unless you borrow it from a friend.

Post Grad was a look and what a college graduate goes through after learning that her dreams are not turning out quite as she expected. She would never believe that she was going to find herself in her parents house again doing jobs that weren't even close to her major. In the end, she learns that having the dream job isn't everything she thought it would be and that her relationships with people are more important.

I was disappointed in the ending as I felt it was very illogical and that it overturned everything that the first part had been promoting. I won't spoil it for anyone how hasn't seen it.
Also, I felt that some of the scenes were unnecessary for the overall plot line.
