Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) has a master plan. Graduate college, get a great job, hang out with her best friend (Zach Gilford) and find the perfect guy. But her plan spins hilariously out of control when she’s forced to move back home with her eccentric family. By the time she lands her dream job, Ryden realizes it’s meaningless without the man of her dreams...and the people she loves. Michael Keaton, Jane Lynch (“Glee”) and Carol Burnett co-star in this offbeat romantic comedy that proves you can still end up on top, even when your life is turned upside-down!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A lightweight, unambitious comedy, Post Grad features fine actors that can do little with its middling, uninspiring script.

Gilmore Girl stars in upbeat, teen-friendly comedy.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this lighthearted Alexis Bledel comedy is on the milder side for a PG-13 -- expect some swearing (including a few "s--t"s and one "f--k") and some social drinking, making out, and discussion of an STD. But otherwise it's sweet, if formulaic. The story attempts to address some “serious” topics -- identity, the transition between college and “the real world” -- but it doesn’t get too deep. It has a feel-good message, though that message is ultimately a little muddled: Does the perfect boyfriend really trump real-life concerns like keeping a job you worked so hard to get?
