4.0 out of 5 stars relatable! 30 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
as a recent graduate, Ryden's situation is completley relatable and for that reason I enjoyed the movie! Sure, it's not the best movie in the world and it won't be winning any awards but as far as light hearted (rom)coms go it was sweet and funny!

2.0 out of 5 stars Post-student life... 10 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Contrary to some reviews, 'Post Grad' is by no means a terrible film. In fact, it has the potential to be rather a good one. Alexis Bledel puts in a characteristically strong performance as Ryden Malby, a young woman torn between dreams of her perfect job at a publishing company, the interests of a handsome neighbour, and the companionship of her childhood friend, Adam (Zach Gilford). Factor in the well-handled tender moments between Ryden and Adam, and there's all the makings of an interesting, moving film. Unfortunately 'Post Grad' never achieves the right balance. The film moves around far too fast, moving between tense, emotional scenes and daft family happenings, in a way that makes the film feel jerky and awkward. Things in 'Post Grad' never have the chance to settle or develop like they could do, before the tone is shifted; usually to some improbable scenario involving Ryden's rather annoying father. The film's zipping pace also means that none of the film's central issues really get the time they deserve. The twists and turns in Ryden and Adam's relationship are rushed over, and due to this, it's hard to really engage with either character, or their relationships. Equally, 'Post Grad''s comedic side leaves rather a lot to be desired. Gone is the nicely understated touch of Ryden's more personal moments, and instead the viewer is left with cats being run over, characters stepping in poo, and other such formulaic 'comedy'. For fans of Alexis Bledel, her performance here will make 'Post Grad' worth a watch, and in honesty, there are far worse films to pass the time with; it's just a shame 'Post Grad' didn't have some smarter jokes, a bit more time on developing its plot and characters, and a few less stereotypically 'batty' relatives breaking up the plot. Otherwise, I imagine I'd be sitting here giving it 3 or 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun film 7 Oct 2010
By pbv
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this film because I love Gilmore Girls and wanted to watch it because "Rory" (Alexis Bledel) is in it. It's not the best film, but it is good fun to just switch off and not have to think about anything for a while.
Alexis' chracter is relatble as she is going through a situation many gradutes are and for the most part is likeable, other than at times her treatment of her friend who is clearly in love with her.
It is somewhat predictable, but tthen again most films these days are. There was a bit near the end that I didn't see coming suprised and annoyed me, but other than this I thought it was a good film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Saved by Alexis Bledel 11 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
Post Grad is a 2009 romantic comedy film starring Alexis Bledel, Michael Keaton, and Jane Lynch (Glee), about a recent LA college graduate who moves back in with her family while she figures out what she wants to do next. It is directed by Vicky Jenson.

Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel 'Gilmore Girls') graduates from college in the middle of the late-2000s recession and is forced to move back in with her parents, because her dream job has been given to her college nemesis Jessica Bard (Catherine Reitman). Ryden and her best friend Adam (Zach Gilford) must find a job for Ryden before she loses hope for her future dream as an editor of a big publishing company. But will sudden feelings for her long time friend interfere with her dreams?

I think Alexis Bledel is a delightful actress, always watchable. In my view, she pretty much carries this movie.
Ever since seeing him be horrendously rude in an interview, I can't cope with Michael Keaton, especially in a 'nice' role like here, but this is a personal view.

Overall, I would set expectation levels to 'modest' here.

Perhaps the best audience (as indeed another reviewer seems to confirm) will be grads starting to look themselves for work out there and learning just how hard it is right now.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Unfortunately “Post Grad” did little business on this side of the pond. So it's not surprising to see that a ‘UK’ BLU RAY of it is AWOL. I say this because the American 20th Century Fox version is REGION A LOCKED – so it will not play on UK machines unless they’re chipped to be ‘all regions’ (which few are). And given its mixed reception - perhaps its not surprising there's no variant for us to have.

Until someone sees fit to release it on a REGION B title - this is another move denied us by Region Coding…

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good film 24 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A film completely relevant to this day and age. Not being able to get the perfect job straight after university sound familiar? Well this film shows you the emotional side of that, and different ways to combat it. Ultimately it teaches you to never give up, and to not give up on family and friends too. And to use all the resources you have. A highly recommended film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sexism ... alive and kickin' in 2012.
Apart from being trite, poor written and about as romantic as a baked potato, the message this movie sends to young women is doom laden.

Don't follow your own dreams. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and romantic
This is perfect for all Alexis Bledel fans, because it see's her in a character that is similar to Rory in the Gilmore Girls. It is a good film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Alexis - yes, film - no.
As much as I love Alexis Bledel I was struggling to finish watching this film. It's just so incredibly dull... The script was O.K. but the storytelling quite dreadful. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars oh oh
If you keep dogs you may end up stepping in this movie. Some directors should show some consideration and poop and scoop
