Critic Reviews

It's a screwball comedy. It's also, I have to say, a feel-good movie that made me smile a lot.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
After watching Post Grad, you may wonder whether Hollywood will ever stop making generic comedies with zero tolerance for originality.
Village Voice
In 2009. Vicky Jenson's live-action debut is as cartoonish as her work on "Shrek," and that's OK for the comic bits. The rest seems like a remarkably cynical cross-breed—for all demographics, but, ultimately, for none.
An innocuous -- to the point of blandness -- look at the "hardships" of a recent college grad.
As fiction characters go, Ryden seems as dull as they come, making it hard to muster much sympathy for her plight.
Ostensibly a comedy, and a feeble and innocuous one at that, Post Grad is one of those what-were-they-thinking?
When a film whose cast includes Michael Keaton, Jane Lynch, Fred Armisen, Craig Robinson, Demetri Martin, and the now rarely seen Carol Burnett can’t scare up more than a smattering of laughs, the patient was never meant to live in the first place.
Miami Herald
An annoying, tedious little film.
Timing’s everything in comedy, so perhaps Post Grad would have seemed peppier prior to the Great Recession; circa now, this comedy feels like a cynical stroll through the unemployment lines awaiting today’s class of seniors.
Bland to the point of pointlessness.
