Tina Fey and Paul Rudd star in this hilarious and heart-warming comedy about the unexpected detours we encounter on the road to happiness. Year in and year out, Princeton admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) has lived her life by the book. But during her annual recruiting trip, she finds herself reconnecting with a former college classmate, free-spirited teacher John Pressman (Rudd). As she bends the entrance rules for one of his very unconventional students, Portia puts at risk the future she thought she always wanted, and finds her way to a surprising and exhilarating life she never dreamed of having.

No I don't know either but they managed it some how. I love Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, chuck in a bit of Lily Tomlin and Michael Sheen and what have you got? A complete waste of talent, that's what.

The story starts slow and stays slow. There are some funny bits, some shiny bits of solo brilliance, but these aren't enough to hold the rest of the plot together. As usual anyone with a British accent is either bad or untrustworthy - and gosh isn't that film device a bit worn out now?

Anyway, this is a waste of good acting talent and that's a sad thing.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 9 July 2013
Format: DVD
Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) is an honest aggressive admissions person for Princeton. The beginning of the film establishes her character and perfect life. She visits a school in New Hampshire, near where she was born, to make a presentation. Her reception was a bit unusual and at times confrontational. John Pressman (Paul Rudd) runs the school and wants one of his exceptional students, Jeremiah (Nat Wolff) to attend Princeton.

Portia's mother is played by Lily Tomlin, who I thought was dead because I don't watch a lot of TV shows. She proves to be quite the character, like something stolen from John Irving. It appears that Jeremiah may be Portia's biological son she gave up for adoption. This creates numerous humorous, "That was weird" moments as her life has just been turned inside out.

Perhaps the oddest thing about the film is that the writers seemed to have placed New Jersey and New Hamshire near each other as the characters are constantly and without much effort driving back and forth between the two, sometimes twice a day.

This is a romantic comedy with an emphasis on comedy. It is a feel good film, but not a tear jerker. A film Tina Fey can use on her resumé.

Parental Guide: 1 F-bomb. No nudity. Off screen implied sex.

I thought admission would just be another comedy, nothing great, just a bit of fun, especially given the two main actors. Don't get me wrong I love Paul Rudd and Tina Fey, they just tend to be in a particular type of film, this was very different from what I was expecting.
I don't want to say too much about the plot as I could spoil it but I felt there was quite a heartfelt story and the setting was original and interesting.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes Tina Fey or Paul Rudd, don't expect big laughs though, It's deeper than that, though I did laugh out loud a few times.

A really enjoyable film. I had to watch it in one sitting, which for me is the sign of a good story line as I wanted to see how it would unfold (although being a formulaic romcom I probably knew anyway). Tina Fey is not only a good actress and comedian but attractive to watch. A nicely done story, you won't be disappointed if you are looking for a typical film of this genre.

I was so looking forward to watching this but was let down! I couldn't even be bothered to watch til the end which is unfortunate as I really like these 2 actors a lot. However I will go and watch some 30 Rock and a couple of Paul Rudd movies to compensate and remind myself that they can be very funny, just not in this film.

I just love Tina Fey and she is good in this. Paul Rudd has not always excelled in some movies (This is 40!!) but is pretty good in this.

Cannot believe how bad this movie was. Two of my favourite actors wasted on a terrible script. What on earth was the takeaway from this movie?
The plot twists were ultimately pointless.
