...a coming-of-age tableau that is neither inspirational nor uplifting.

I know this world of trying to find a job after college. I tried my hand at entertainment journalism, which is crazy. This movie does not represent the humor in the job search. It was laughable what's out there and what I didn't get.

Bland but certainly not awful, 'Post Grad' will commence quickly to the rental shelf.

Aims for the quirkiness of Little Miss Sunshine and misses by a mile.

It's a harmless movie that could have been even better if they made Michael Keaton the main star.

Considering the waste of time, comedic talent and film-financing, it flunks.

Post-Grad finds Alexis Bledel sinking into the quicksand of typecasting, playing nearly the same role she perfected during seven seasons as the ambitious Rory on Gilmore Girls.

The makers of Post Grad managed to squander a promising and timely concept -- relative scarcity in the job market -- by turning in a screaming dud of a comedy.

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.

I've slogged my way through worse films than Post Grad, but what it lacks in sheer awfulness it more than makes up for in utter pointlessness.

The only thing that works in this film is Zach Gilford, otherwise it feels like a bad mashup of two screenplays, with a terrible life lesson.

A sweet romantic comedy that would be better suited as a TV movie rather than big screen fare

Critic's Notebook

The film seems predisposed to come across as dated and nonspecific as possible.

As edgy and thought-provoking as a Sarah Palin campaign rally, though with nowhere near the same amount of laughs.

it's not the supporting cast that makes this movie suffer. It's the main characters... they're self-centered, whiney and utterly abrasive people

Alexis Bledel plays a Ms. Sunshine who's fresh out of college and unable to find work, and thus -- conveniently for the uninspired makers of this dismayingly conservative dramedy -- she's temporarily bunking back home

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 better things.

Excessive niceness may be an unfair charge to lob at a movie, but Post Grad is so swaddled in good intentions that it's like taking a very short journey cushioned on all sides by air bags. That are stuffed with cotton candy.

The story that writer Kelly Fremon wants to tell in Post Grad -- recent college grad strikes out at finding a job, moves back home with her wacky family and finds true love -- is pretty tired.
