Chicago Tribune

The material may be formulaic, but the spirit of the piece is friendly.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
It's a screwball comedy. It's also, I have to say, a feel-good movie that made me smile a lot.

Boston Globe

A disjointed patchwork of zany character sketches lacking in coherence and credibility.

A harmless, aimless, mildly funny and thoroughly predictable comic-romantic piffle.

Dismayingly conservative dramedy.

An innocuous -- to the point of blandness -- look at the "hardships" of a recent college grad.

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...

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Ostensibly a comedy, and a feeble and innocuous one at that, Post Grad is one of those what-were-they-thinking?

Post Grad is a collection of unfunny, insipid and predictable vignettes in search of a movie.

We are meant to think they are all delightfully and amusingly eccentric (characters). Actually, they're just creepy

POSTGRAD - deserves a failing grade. Rating: 44 out of 100. (Based on advance VIP press preview)

By MOVIES REVIEWER
This excruciatingly bad 1.5hr dramedy stars Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel. Director Vicky Jenson who excelled with SHREK, failed with POSTGRAD. I'm so glad that I did not pay to see this...

Saw this Screeening.

By lolo86
The preview does this flick no justice. It will be on the summer hot list for films. Its like Little Miss Sunshine. Its will blow up. Trust me its a must see....

Some good laugh out loud moments

By mattman2900
While I'm not too sure the story makes sense, the acting by Michael Keaton and Carl Burnett is purposely over the top and chaotic, and Burnett's comedic timing is still there. Alexis Bledel's blue...

A skinny latte of a movie

By RandytheMovieFan
Light, frothy, very predictable and mostly bland, this movie has a couple of enjoyable moments including a cat funeral that had me laughing out loud. Alexis Bledel lights up the screen, but whether...

Post Grad

By Sentimentalmoviebuff
I really enjoyed Post Grad. Alexis B. is funny & warm, and her character in this movie reflects this. I really appreciated the fact that the writers didn't have her jump into bed with either of the...

“POST GRAD” – Job-Hunting becomes frustratingly hard for people in QUIRKY families Rating: 7.5 of 10 stars.

By jimchudnow
This romantic comedy is surprisingly WELL-DONE, funny (in a non-sleazy way) & ENJOYABLE. Ryden (ALEXIS BLEDEL) is a new college graduate who’s dying to get a job at the top publishing company in Los...

Post Grad is NOT a funny movie, actually in the end your actually like, what was that?

By thesilentcat4
Post Grad was very poorly made. It wasn't exactly the actors fault it was bad, they were alright, yet the filmmakers made some horrible decisions. The movie is supposed to be about Ryden, yet the...

Stupid Movie

By SMFroelich
Yet another Alexis Bledel movie with her in the same role that she plays in every other movie and tv show. Very light hearted, girly flick with a very predictable plot and over emphasis on none...

Its pretty okay.

By saxophone4ever
I thought this movie however predictable, was fairly funny. On a scale from 1-10 this movie is probably a 6.5. I wouldn't pay over 7 bucks for it. Either wait for it to go to a cheaper theatre or...

waste of money

By clip51
If you think dead cats are funny, you will love this movie. There should be a rating symbol for "distressing for animal lovers."...
