Ho-hum stuff.

Like festive icing on a plain vanilla cake, a fun cast and offbeat humor hugely increase the palatability of Post Grad.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Alaina O'Connor
TV 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...

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.

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.

Heat Magazine

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.

Trevor Johnston

The film is never flat-out terrible - just thoroughly bland.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
David Edwards
Daily Mirror (UK)
January 5, 2010
While there's little to hate, there's almost nothing to like in a film this anodyne. The jokes aren't funny, the performances are middling and the storyline predictable.

Independent (UK)

Post Grad is trying to reproduce the wackily dysfunctional manners of family life that made Little Miss Sunshine a hit, but hasn't the charm, the jokes or, significantly, the nerve.

Nicholas Barber
Independent on Sunday
January 5, 2010
It's not a bad topic for a comedy, especially in the current economic climate, but the film-makers don't have the faintest idea what to do with it.
Matthew Turner

January 5, 2010
A badly written, poorly directed and frequently excruciating comedy-drama that squanders both its talented cast and its potentially interesting premise.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall
January 5, 2010
A corny script and lifeless direction undermine what could have been a potentially enjoyable coming-of-age film about a young woman who thinks she has her life sorted out. Despite the talented cast, the film can only barely generate a smile.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

It's of note chiefly for giving likeable performers not one worthwhile thing to do between them.
