More serious than you might expect

Tina Fey turns out to be a competent serious actress in addition to being able to do slapstick comedy. Perhaps I was in a bad mood when I walked in but I was expecting a lighter story with more laughs. At least that's what the trailers had led me to expect. Overall, not a bad way to spend 2 hours but I didn't walk away feeling better than I walked in.

The Worst Movie I Have Seen In The Theatre In A Long Time

By BrianLaughs
Written February 23, 2017
The characters were boring. I laughed 1.5 times. In fact, the most I laughed was during the previews when there was a trailer for Scary Movie 5. Whomever green-lit this movie is a total moron. The only thing that makes me more upset than the $12 I wasted on this unfunny pile of awful filmmaking is that the movie has already extorted $15 Million from moviegoers. If you want to see a funny, entertaining version of "Admission" with a lesson at the end you can cheer for, don't see "Admission", go see "Orange County", starring Jack Black, Colin Hanks, Ben Stiller, John LItgow and Catherine Ohara.

Rather Disappointed

By pdxnative83

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.
