Though parts of this trailer for Post Grad are predictable and a little cheesy, overall it's way more endearing and adorable than I had anticipated. Alexis Bledel plays Ryden Malby in this sentimental comedy that explores the scary/exciting challenges of graduating college and not having everything fall right into place. She lives with her parents, hangs out with her longtime guy friend Adam (Zach Gilford), and vies for the same jobs as countless other early 20-something hopefuls — and repeatedly faces rejection, causing her to wonder what her future will actually look like. Michael Keaton plays Ryden's father, Jane Lynch is involved somehow, and Rodrigo Santoro appears as a handsome older guy doling out life advice.
Post Grad (previously known as The Post-Graduate Survival Guide) opens August 21. To watch the trailer,
