Movie Review: Post Grad

Post Grad has a cute premise that is actually relevant to what is probably happening to a lot of college grads - at least a lot more than in other years. It centers around Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) as she graduates college, lands the dream interview and finds the dream apartment. That's in the first 5 minutes of the movie. Of course the "plan" starts crumbling otherwise there really wouldn't be a movie... You can google the rest of the plot if you're really interested, but if you didn't land the dream job from the dream interview, you can pretty much guess that hilarity is supposed to ensue as she is forced to move home as she continues to look for employment.

Let me start off by saying I really wanted to like this movie more than I did. Really wanted to. I mean I REALLY loved the players: Alexis Bledel, Michael Keaton, Jane Lynch and Carol Burnett (who really should have written more of her own lines). I don't know if it was the script or the editing, but I left that movie theater feeling like I was missing something.

It is a "cute" movie, but people, save your money and Netflix it.
