Not a huge Rom-Com fan, but this had a lot of nice surprises and the biggest is that it isn't a Rom-Com. Every one was great, Lily Tomlin is GORGEOUS! and the little twist ending kept if from being too sweet and neat. I would recommend it to any one looking for a smart, funny film.

I thought this was a really cute movie! Parts of it had me laughing out loud, but I would not call it a comedy. Of course it is predictable, but most movies are. I left with a smile on my face!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR MY FELLOW PRINCETONIANS.
SEE IT BEFORE NEXT REUNION.
THE ADMISSIONS PROCESS IS TRUNCATED. IF YOU WERE EVER AN ALUMNI INTERVIEWER, YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF AND YOUR ROLE LEFT OUT. YOU WILL, HOWEVER, BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN THINGS TO YOUR FRIENDS.

Went and saw Admission today with my boyfriend. Disappointed.
I was expecting a romantic comedy and I got a bit too-heavy, very too little romantic, downer.
Its about a Princeton Admissions lady being presented with the possibility that this gifted yet school challenged kid is her son and her shenanigans to try and help him get into Princeton as well as getting used to the idea of being a mom (while having a semi-romantic fling with the teacher that presented her with this notion, and her personal life falling apart).
Not all that comedic, not all that romantic, and kinda a downer.
The actors themselves were great, I love both of the leads, but they were put in a movie that was seriously lacking.
I don't recommend this one if you're looking for a true romantic comedy.

I like Tina Fey. I really like Paul Rudd and any movie he is in. The trailer looked pretty good, the supporting cast looked good, and although the reviews were coming in so-so, I thought they had to be wrong. To my disappointment, they were right.
It may just be the case that Tina is good and Paul is great, but they just don't go together well.
Save your money - wait for it on DVD or Netflix.
