In Post Grad, the Gilmore Girls’ bright-eyed Alexis Bledel plays a Ms. Sunshine who’s fresh out of college and unable to find work (let alone her dream job in publishing), and thus — conveniently for the uninspired makers of this dismayingly conservative dramedy — she’s temporarily bunking back home with her wacky-lite family. (Carol Burnett fills the crackpot oldie role usually offered to Alan Arkin.) Friday Night LightsZach Gilford has the dull honor of playing a loving guy waiting to be loved back. More laziness: Life in the publishing biz is depicted, natch, as a soul suck. C
