Good movie - but NOT a comedy.

The movie is billed as a romantic comedy, and with Fey and Rudd you would expect as much. Unfortunately, it falls short on the comedy portion and develops a much more dramatic element that at times turns somewhat dark. Occasional slow points don't help. Overall the story line is good and the characters are entertaining, just not quite what we were expecting when we walked into it based on writeups and trailers.

I really enjoyed this movie. I thought that Tina Fey did a great job with it. I loved Lily Tomlin's character and she too was wonderful.

It was a very relaxing movie and it made me laugh. I guess I would have done the same thing as Protia as a....mother(1) although it is cheating! Good movie, keeps your attention on all the time

If you like Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, you'll definitely like this movie. We went with our daughter, a sophomore in college, and we all found it very entertaining - especially since we'd been through the admission process 2-yrs ago. We'd definitely recommend it and will watch it again.
