"Admission" is a funny, moving, tender romantic comedy. Having Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Lily Tomlin and Wallace Shawn in it certainly doesn't hurt, as they are four of the best and funniest actors in film today. This movie is well written, well acted, well directed and very entertaining.

Considering the cast, there is pretty much no way that this movie could have bombed. That being said, this movie didn't know if it was a comedy, a drama, or a romance. There was a little bit of everything going on. The comedic parts were good, when the came up, but the rest was fairly flat. Strong comedic actors just shouldn't try romantic drama.

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.
