Product Description

Eternal optimist Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) has the most brutal of wake-up calls when she graduates from college and can't find a job, forcing her back home to live with her oddball family. Frustrated and confused about how her life is supposed to turn out, she soon realizes that her longtime platonic best friend is the only one who makes everything in her crazy life make sense.

Amazon.com

Alexis Bledel brings all of her Gilmore Girls adorability to bear on Post Grad. Brand-new college graduate Ryden Malby (Bledel) has her future all mapped out--but when she loses her dream job with a publishing firm to her long-time school nemesis, she has to move back in with her family. Here the movie comes alive, because her family is played by such old pros as Michael Keaton, Jane Lynch (co-star of numerous Christopher Guest comedies), and Carol Burnett. All of them get to wallow in entertaining eccentricities that pretty much steal the movie away from Bledel. Not because she’s a bad actress--on the contrary, she’s quite charming--but because the problems she faces don’t amount to much. She has to hold some jobs that she doesn’t like and she has to choose between the handsome indie-rocker/law student who’s always been in love with her (Zach Gilford, Friday Night Lights) and the handsome Brazilian infomercial director who lives across the street (Rodrigo Santoro, completely unrecognizable from his role in 300). We should all have such problems. Post Grad, much like Ryden herself, succeeds in the engaging moments of character goofiness and haphazard incidents, but doesn’t really know what it wants to do with itself when it grows up. --Bret Fetzer

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.

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!

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.

I didn't have high hopes for this movie but I was bored one night and decided to check it out. It actually turned out quite enjoyable. Although a bit cheesy, it had a pretty cute story and several parts I laughed out loud at the humor. "What'd I tell you about licking people's heads" "To not to" I'm sure it wouldn't be everyones cup a tea but I, as well as other people, found it quite entertaining. The supporting cast (her family) were crazy, funny and lovable. The only negative thing I have to say is everyone else in the movie was a better actor than Alexis Bledel. She's a cute girl but has no dimension outside of her character off gilmore girls. But still the same, I enjoyed it!

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.

We just kept looking at each other and saying, "Why?" Which isn't that bad- movies can be weird. But they were trying to be so funny throughout the whole movie- everything was just all over the place.
Alexis was adorable- the acting wasn't really that bad- it was just too much forced humor. You kind of have to force humor when you throw in running over cats, belt-buckle fraud, grandmas testing out coffins, homemade go-cart racing, guacamole infomercials, stealing ice-cream trucks...see what I mean? And we're suppose to care about a love story amidst all of this? It was just distracting.
Alexis finally lands her dream job (that we don't really get a sense that she doesn't enjoy in the slightest), and her Dad tells her he's proud that she's throwing it all away and moving without warning to a guy who blew her off.
You can't really sympathize with her love interest because the first time he lets her know he loves her (finally- after all these years of pining for her), he's mad and then stalks off. When she finally has this puzzle piece that he loves her and she realizes she loves him too- she goes after him in a totally vulnerable way and he blows her off? So she has to go after him again? Really? More like he's a loser who should have told you he loved you sooner or started jumping for joy when you told him you felt the same way.
Such a waste of time...
