Plot Outline:

Portia Nathan, a by-the-books Princeton admissions officer on the fast-track to promotion finds herself bending the rules when a visit to an alternative school ran by an old college friend presents her with Jeremiah - a gifted young man who may very well be the child she gave up for adoption years before. Her job may be at risk, but her life has never been as rewarding. -- Chris Kavan

Like all Tina Fey movies, it's hilarious. However, like many Paul Rudd movies, it's a little too ridiculous to be taken seriously. But all in all, it's not a bad movie.

Admission review

Princeton University admissions officer Portia (Tina Fey) meets a sympathetic John Pressman (Paul Rudd). He highly recommends a special student named Jeremiah Balakian (Nat Wolff). The love angle felt rushed the the overall premise just too impossible to happen. It has some heartfelt moments about giving chances and searching for the "truth" the conclusion just seems incomplete in a way after all Portia has gone though. The build-up for the theory of John if Jeremiah was just wasted and had no real evidence. Not enough to make it funny and just not a convincing romance between the leads. Fey and Rudd had onscreen chemistry and the soundtrack was fair. Overall, an average rom-com worth viewing just to see how admission department of an ivy school works and how they deliberate their.

Admission (2013) Portia (Tina Fey) is an admissions officer for Princeton University, who is up for a promotion.

When she visits a small alternative school, at the behest of a former classmate (Paul Rudd), she discovers a secret that she had hoped would forever be forgotten. This is one of those films that you really want to love but you end up just sort of liking it. The biggest problem with this film is the lack of chemistry between Fey and Rudd, as you just never quite see the attraction between the two. I also did not like the ending to this film, as Fey’s character does something so wrong that it makes you uncomfortable to witness it. The supporting cast, ...

It's like Date Night - great actors, but I also have a feeling the film itself is only going to be average - I'm saying a rental on this one.

I will see this movie as a big Paul Rudd fan. As a movie fan, I think this looks like a dud.
