Pin It

Tedious, predictable, pretty good 

Post Grad has all the weary tropes you've seen before, but manages to work a silly streak to success.

Type-A college grad Ryden (Alexis Bledel) comes up short in the job market, moves back in with her parents and generally learns that life and relationships and stuff are really hard. It's pretty tedious and predictable, I know, but Post Grad has the good sense to fill out its wan storyline with zany and droll supporting turns, courtesy of comedy heavy-lifters Michael Keaton, Craig Robinson, Demetri Martin (more spirited in his tiny cameo here than in the entire running time of Taking Woodstock) and the hyperventilating combination of Carol Burnett and Jane Lynch. Post Grad is slight, but its silly streak makes it enjoyable.
