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

The uncertainty of post-college life is a potential gold mine of interesting material, and this movie avoids nearly all of it.

Post Grad is a Devil Wears Prada without the devil, a Reality Bites without any bite -- and not much reality, either.

Post Grad isn't funny, surprising, or insightful enough to provoke more than a ho-hum reaction.

The greatest actress in the history of drama couldn't make first-timer Kelly Fremon's sow's ear of a screenplay into a sow's ear sandwich, much less a silk purse.

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.

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.

Even with its appealing cast ... most of the time Post Grad just coasts along, flat as a mortar board and as forgettable as a ... oh, I forgot already.

Post Grad is all about what happens after you get your diploma, but the movie itself doesn't even earn an E for effort, let alone make the grade.

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

Burnett even offering one of her best comical acts could not save the lousy uninspired script.

I would like to take this occasion to lodge a complaint. There is no valid reason, none in the observable universe, why mainstream romantic comedies must adhere to the same script.

A homogenized piffle about the "ordeal" of a middle-class college grad momentarily without a job.

Critic's Notebook

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

Comedies like I Love You, Beth Cooper and My Life in Ruins have already set a very low bar for Fox ... Post Grad still finds room to lower that bar even further.

Often drags and falls flat as a stale, contrived drama and painfully unfunny comedy with forgettable, cardboard characters.

A movie that never quite succeeds in capturing a generation adrift.

Post Grad heaps more bad on top of the bad that it has already delivered until all it can do is wallow in its own cliche, wondering why even the teenage girls in the front row of the theater -- the very girls that should be lapping its message up -
