At the heart of the problem with this movie are matters of logic and cogency.
April 1, 2013
The many strands of this amiable yet overstuffed romantic comedy don't hang together, though each, on its own, has a modest charm.

What is most distressing about Admission is that it serves as further evidence that Tina Fey, despite her dominance of the small screen, has not yet mastered the big one.

This is certainly an interesting idea, though the movie is badly handicapped by Fey, who must venture beyond her usual snippiness into scenes of genuine poignancy and proves unequal to the task.

Granted, this is not automatic laugh-riot material, nor should it be, but didn't Fey recognize how hackneyed it all is?

If Fey ends up making movies as good as this one over the next few years, television's loss will have been cinema's gain, for real.

Admission has some funny moments and it has some poignant moments. Unfortunately, the film never seems quite able to determine what its focus should be. This results in a movie that never quite clicks.

While Rudd and Fey may not have the most fiery on-screen chemistry, they're always enjoyable to watch. I'd call this one a rainy-day rental.

Tina Fey and Paul Rudd are Hollywood's comedy sweethearts... But while the film gets high scores, it's not passing with flying colors.

It pains me to lay this problem at the feet of the leads, of whom I am, independently, quite fond. They are both likeable, and I'll even grant them some chemistry, but their characters' situations become too serious for the performances they deliver.
