It's not often a film comes along that's just as much fun to watch with your parents as it is to watch with your partner or friends, but Admission is just that sort of film.

... a wonderfully entertaining comedy with good pace and sparkling performances...

Teen-friendly comedy has laughs but is uneven.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

It's mostly harmless, but also pretty lifeless.

"Hey, look who's here," the film says excitedly as Rudd and Fey routinely attempt to make a stale screenplay humorous, "Why aren't you laughing at them?"

These guys could make taxes seem charming. Pair them up romantically and surround them with a competent three-act screenplay and the rest takes care of itself.

Katharine Hepburn used to specialize in supercompetent women who get their comeuppance and learn to be "womanly." Is this a lesson that still needs teaching?
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Tina Fey and Paul Rudd are terrific. So is Lily Tomlin. The acting and chemistry works but this rom-com's story does not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 22, 2013
It's nothing that will knock your cinematic socks off and the performers clearly aren't stretching much, but it's charming and pleasant enough to keep the pic from failing. (Complete Content Details for Parents also available)

Admission offers two appealing leads, a gaggle of potentially strong themes and, well, that's about it.

Tina Fey once again excels at portraying a modern woman beset by very modern struggles and expectations.

You'll be glad you enrolled.

This would be a good movie for a parent to watch with a high-school-age child facing down the college admissions slog-it's mildly snarky but resolutely uncynical.
March 22, 2013
Some films are electric - Admission settles for alternating current.

When in doubt, ma'am, just ask yourself: What would Tina Fey do?
Full Review | Original Score: B
March 22, 2013
In their central roles, Rudd and Fey have a natural, unforced chemistry. John and Portia are cute as buttons, but they're also goofy, confused and flawed people.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 22, 2013
The comedy doesn't seem very funny when real emotional damage is inflicted, and the drama doesn't work when the set-ups are so hard to justify in a real world context.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
March 21, 2013
The romance between Tina Fey and Paul Rudd is by far the most conventional and least interesting thing in the otherwise pleasantly articulate "Admission."

If Admission was a college application, it would be rejected, but only after the application fee had been deposited.
