Post Grad tells the story of the tribulations of a recent graduate unable to land a job. Critics give it poor grades:
- Star Alexis Bledel “works her Gilmore Girls charm to the hilt, but no amount of cerulean-eyed sparkle can transcend this level of thudding mediocrity," writes Jeannette Catsoulis in the New York Times. It’s “a weightless dramedy directed without a single imaginative shot or fresh idea.”
- In USA Today, Claudia Puig says the film “doesn’t even reach hackneyed sitcom status,” calling it “a collection of unfunny, insipid and predictable vignettes in search of a movie."
- But Roger Ebert, writing in the Chicago Sun-Times, found it a welcome relief. “Sometimes you get out of a movie and feel like you've just worked a desperate overnight shift on the homicide detail. You get out of this film, and you have a good feeling.”
