OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 47 moviegoers:
TEENS:The 19 reviews are mainly from females and three-quarters of them loved "Post Grad." Most of the rest rated it as "Good/Average," which is decent.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The one male rated it average, as did two of the three females. One female loved it. Three reviews aren't really enough to be very accurate/useful.
ADULTS:Just over half of the females enjoyed "Post Grad" very much. Many of them loved it. However, quite a few only rated it as "Good/Average," which is a bit disappointing. A couple of the males loved it, one rated it above average, but most only rated it as "Good/Average," which is a bit low.
Ryden Malby (Bledel) had a plan. Do well in high school, thereby receiving a great college scholarship. Now that she's finally graduated, it's time for her to find a gorgeous loft apartment and land her dream job at the city's best publishing house. But when Jessica Bard (Reitman), Ryden's college nemesis steals her perfect job, Ryden is forced to move back to her childhood home. Stuck with her eccentric family – a stubborn do-it-yourself dad (Keaton), an overly thrifty mom (Lynch), a politically incorrect grandma (Burnett), a very odd little brother (Coleman) – and a growing stack of rejected job applications, Ryden starts to feel like she's going nowhere. The only upside is spending time with her best friend, Adam (Zach Gilford) – and running into her hot next-door neighbor, David (Santoro). But if Ryden's going to survive life as a post grad, it may be time to come up with a new plan…
