      • May 23, 2013

        A sadly uneven movie that falls apart with its schlocky third act, and completely undoes (1) a relatable story about an exemplar of the generation of children told they were wonderful for their entire lives (only to discover upon leaving college that they're only as wonderful as their peers), (2) a charming (if cliche) romantic plot, and (3) borderline hilarious supporting character work by Michael Keaton, as the heroine's dad. The way the character gets out of her bind is entirely based on a series of coincidences, and it's all-too convenient to seem meaningful or even plausible. A friend said to me that she felt when watching this that in the end, the main character should have failed. I completely agree; had she failed, but retained some sliver of success or learning from the journey, the film could have been a winner. As it is, though, it seems to be yet another surprising, promising slice-of-life chewed to pieces by the Hollywood pap machine.

        A bland concoction on the surface about the difficulty of life after the certainty of college (hence the title), noticeably buoyed by the much-better-than-the-material cast. But even their efforts fail to raise much interest in the sugarcoated Disney-esque proceedings.

        Matt Saracen is in this. He's awful in it because this movie is awful, but he is there and he is cute.

        Yet again another comecy romance that gets going good then fails completly in the last act, the plot of the guy best friend who has always loved his best girl mate is ever present here, and annoyed me badly and got in the way, her story would have been interesting enough.
