HUGE disappointment

first off, I think the "i'm In" is a dumb idea. This is based on the previews, but continues to be shown after the movie has been released. It can generate enthusiasm for a totally LACKLUSTER movie. I was "in" all right. Opening night to a smaller than I expected audience with one or two people laughing a few times during the entire movie. What a disappointment. The film was just plain boring. It never took off. I only stayed for whole thing because I like the actors and wanted to see how it ended, It had a couple of minor "chuckles" for silly stuff.If you MUST see it - wait for Netflix rental.

This movie dragged in spots but had some funny parts. If you must do a chick flic it's not too bad. I didn't look at my watch until an hour into the movie.

My wife and I do not get a chance to get out too often so when we had the chance, we both like Tina Fey. Boy, we were disappointed. Wait for redbox.

Better than expected

I had no real expectations when I went to this movie, but I ended up enjoying it. It was an entertaining watch, funny and at times sad. The thing I enjoyed most about this movie was that I didn't expect the ending; it seemed to mirror real life more than an idealized ending. If you feel like getting out of the house and seeing a movie, this is a good one to go see.

Cute is nice, but nothing special

Admission is a fun, cute movie. It tries hard to be deep but doesn't really get there. Paul Rudd is his terrific, naturally care free self while Tina Fey is charmingly uptight and comical. Except f or the kid playing the student Paul and Tina are trying to get admitted into Princeton, the supporting staff doesn't do much in this movie and are surprisingly unlikable. That said, if you want a feel good, silly but down to earth movie, you'll enjoy this exaggerated look at two of the world of education's most extreme examples. If you go hoping for too much depth or too much comedy, you'll be disappointed. It's not necessarily laugh out loud funny, but is certainly a feel good, check your emotional fortitude kind of flick. Go have a good time, get some popcorn and a soda, and sit back and enjoy this satirical underdog education romp.
