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.
