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.
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 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.
Biedel made this film at the height of her popularity; it was exceptionally unprofitable and negatively recieved, and her lack of starring roles since then is primarily due to this. I write very few reviews; but Amazon attempting to present this as a popular or well-recieved work, or even all that recent (it was made, widely ridiculed and horribly bombed four years ago) is tantamount to fraud.
