The romantic part of the comedy is provided in the love triangle between Ryder, her loyal friend Adam who is very much in love with her, and the sexy next-door neighbour David.
So watch how Ryden moves back to her parents house after her dreams fall apart, and slowly rebuilds herself and her dreams. The comedy is light and easy to watch and like. Alexis Bledel is great as Ryder and the chemistry between her and Zach Gilford, who plays Adam is believable. This type of genre really suits Alexis Bledel, and she is definitely one of the reasons this is a great film. The other actors are no unknowns either and keep the story going with their weird little ways. Michael Keaton and Carol Burnett do well as the weird parents.
This is definitely a movie to watch with a boyfriend or girlfriend, or just to get a bunch of girls together for a movie night. So get that Post Grad dvd, get the popcorn popping, and sit back and relax!
