It is neither a broad comedy nor a dopey rom-com; it's actually, surprisingly enough, a seriocomic drama in something resembling the Alexander Payne mold, a slightly eccentric examination of flawed people doing their very best.

A romantic dramedy about a passionate erudite oddball woman with her own life? Hooray!

An engaging cast holds our interest even when this rom-com meanders down unnecessary sideroads and dips into corny sentimentality.

We generally expect more wacky humour from Fey and Rudd than this comedy, which is packed with perhaps too-smart dialog and a lot of warm sentiment.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Everywhere you see Tina Fey she is hilarious - except in this movie.

A comedy, but a serious comedy.

What it [arguably] lacks in passion, Admission makes up for nicely in heart with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd at their light dramatic best.

Fey is flawless as a stickler for rules, order, and over-rehearsed patter whose desperation to maintain an even keel at all times results in puckishly inappropriate behavior when things start to fall apart

When Admission is over, you're left with the feeling that you've seen something whole, complete, and enjoyable - albeit not all that memorable.

Once Weitz makes up his mind, 'Admission' finds its voice as a drama in time to reach a satisfying conclusion.

[Weitz] wrings out solid humor from Portia's comic struggles to balance her professionalism with her newly unearthed maternal instincts.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
Kam Williams
March 22, 2013
An alternately comical and thought-provoking cautionary tale that's every bit as hilarious as it is sobering.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

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.

Teen-friendly comedy has laughs but is uneven.

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.
