The movie subverts expectations, and not in a good way, by seeming in a dither about its own identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 13, 2013
This is comedy with zero pulse.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 13, 2013
The tone is uneven, the central romance is unconvincing and it's disappointingly low on actual laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 13, 2013
The themes are important, even if in this Hollywood laundering they are sloshed about in love suds and clattered by uneven comedy spins.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 12, 2013
A perfectly serviceable, star-led romance, Admission is also proof that some actors are just fun to watch in anything (which here extends to the supporting cast as well as the leads).
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 11, 2013
The staggeringly unconvincing dynamic between the central characters not only leaves Fey and Rudd helpless, it ensures the whole movie is effectively rudderless.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 11, 2013
Admission is disappointing rather than disastrous but it's desperately lacking in spark and individuality.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 11, 2013
These truly are dark and terrible times if we are forced to accept the elitist problems of an Ivy League college admissions officer as shameless fodder for a romcom.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 10, 2013
Yet another movie where a life is portrayed as unfulfilled unless the heroine has been down the Pampers aisle.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 9, 2013
Occasionally charming but mostly bland fare from Weitz, despite the reliable cast. About A Boy remains the best showcase of his talents.

The tone and story lack such solidity. Opportunities for moments between Portia and Jeremiah go wasted.

It's Tomlin who snatches laughs with her feminist doyenne, who's horrendously doctrinaire yet perversely likable. She has the passion and outrageousness the movie needs.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 13, 2013
With Fey's name attached, you expect more than yet another Hollywood film that puts an over-eager career woman in her place.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
April 25, 2013
It isn't a world beater, but this gentle and heartwarming understated comedy had better not be Rudd and Fey's last as co-stars.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 11, 2013
On entering adulthood.
April 3, 2013
A running theme of parenthood, by nature or nurture, extends "Admission" beyond its broader comedy of mismatched-or missing-romantic partners, sight gags and punch lines.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
March 29, 2013
Fey's usual self-deprecating wit and charm only sporadically rise above the plot mechanics.
March 29, 2013
Everywhere you see Tina Fey she is hilarious - except in this movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
March 28, 2013
Admission never gives its world-class players the opportunity to do anything but sit on the sidelines while the film goes in circles, trying to find a consistent tone without ever getting out of its own way.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.2/10
