Atomic's Review of Admission

I liked this! Looks like the percentages have deservedly come up a little bit. This was a new and different story. I'd read the book which left me cold until it came together at the end and I wound up loving it. The movie was true to all the best aspects of the book, while adding twists that I thought worked well to keep you entertained. Loved most all of the changes! A couple of really funny moments and some good acting in my personal opinion. Maybe this wasn't the typical Hollywood story we are used to, I thought the relationship between Portia (Tina Fey) and John (Paul Rudd) could have been a little more fleshed out. In the book, she was his crush in college though she couldn't even remember him. I just like this was one I'd never heard before. Totally worth watching...especially if you go in like I did expecting 12% critic and 27% audience ratings that were the last I'd seen. I was actually delighted by both the book and movie. :)
