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.

I thought Admission would be more of a comedy, but, it was actually a heartfelt story.
I still enjoyed it. Tina Fey's always great, and it was a treat having Lily Tomlin play her mom.
Paul Rudd is always charming on screen. The young people were heartwarming. Good film
about the college admission process, and the politics. Also showed how the choice to have or not to have children is life-changing.

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.

I really lie Tina Fey and Paul Rudd (well, him in things that aren't rated r) but this movie fell a little flat. Some comedy, like them as a couple, I enjoy Lily Tomlin but story wise? While, all the right components were there, it just didn't come together well. I should have waited to Red Box it but oh, well......
