Post Grad Reviews

Leah Rozen
People Magazine

Like festive icing on a plain vanilla cake, a fun cast and offbeat humor hugely increase the palatability of Post Grad.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Its plot developments are safe and predictable, but the things Post Grad does well suggest it could have been more than just another middling romantic comedy.

It should be popular fare at slumber parties for diligent girls well into the next decade.

Alexis Bledel is miscast as an oddball in Post Grad, but the rest of the movie has oddity aplenty.

In Post Grad, although screwiness abounds, I was wishing there were a bit more rule-breaking.

The Proposal and The Ugly Truth only wish they had some of the charm of unpretentious diversions such as Bandslam or Post Grad.

A feel-good movie that made me smile a lot.

Without Alexis Bledel, this pic would be a TV sitcom. With her, merely passable.

Ho-hum stuff.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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

Director Vicky Jenson has a sitcom script on her hands and proceeds accordingly.

It acts like the audience knows nothing about how humans behave or find jobs or keep them or have romantic relationships or exist in families.

Director Vicky Jenson has infused Post Grad with all the subtlety and substance of a garden-variety sitcom...

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

There's certainly a lot of material there but none of the comedy works in any way at all and Keaton is a dead zone at the centre of the film.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

Vicky Jenson's attempt at a go-getting romcom is a tragic underachiever on the com front: the rent-a-quirk characters feel like a Little Miss Sunshine tribute act gone wrong.

he try-hard quirkiness and clunky screenwriting starts to grate after just a few minutes. By the final act, it's not unlike having bamboo splinters inserted under your fingernails.

A clumsily scripted, misfiring affair.

The level of humour is summed up by the scene where a dead cat is buried in a pizza box.

This lame family-centric comedy desperately wants to be Little Miss Sunshine but ends up - by virtue of the bizarre cast of unfunny characters - like Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

One bland, listless slog.
