Admission

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Portia Nathan works in admissions at Princeton University, a school that's notoriously tough to get into, and she's preparing for a particularly busy application period when she gets a call from John Pressman (Paul Rudd), a teacher at a new agey school in New Hampshire, hoping to introduce her to an exceptional 18-year-old student named Jeremiah (Nat Wolff) who wants to apply to Princeton.

  • Excerpt: Paul Rudd sure hasn’t had luck at the box office lately. Our Idiot Brother , Wanderlust and now Admission have all failed to bring in big numbers. Rudd is certainly a likeable actor, but he’s best served as a supporting character. He is better at playing off of other characters than he is as a leading man. Tina Fey takes the female lead here. She plays Portia Nathan, an admissions officer widely known for rejecting more applicants than she accepts.

  • Excerpt: In the wake of 30 Rock 's departure, scads of Tina Fey fans are surely on the hunt for their new Liz Lemon fix. But while Fey is as game and endearing as ever in Paul Weitz's Admission , a Princeton-set dramedy that casts the comedienne as Portia, a high-strung admissions counselor, this is hardly the vehicle to sate Fey's devotees.

  • Summary: "Admission" is a dull affair that saps any personality away from the usually hilarious Fey and Rudd.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'Admission' feels far too jumbled and tonally inept to be considered a comedy that's worth your time. There is the saving grace that Rudd and Fey are in it, and most of their scenes together work, sadly the movie as a whole falls pretty flat. Audio and video are solid, but the features package is a lean one indeed. If you're still interested in seeing it, a rental might be the best route to take. I can't see many people watching it multiple times.

Admission Blu-ray Review

29 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Were Admission a Princeton applicant it would quickly be tossed in amongst the promising hopefuls too ordinary and underwhelming to compete with the cream of the crop. Fey, Rudd and their talented co-stars are wasted on an uneven script that lurches from one "funny" bit to the next, hurrying past the meat of the film in a desperate attempt to score one more cheap laugh that never really comes.

  • Excerpt: If nothing else, Admission is the chance to see two of the best-liked funny people on the planet finally get together onscreen. Tina Fey and Paul Rudd are both at the center of the Venn Diagram that includes nearly all of the best comedy from the past 15 years, and playing your typical rom-com couple struggling to find their way to each other, the two bring an unusual level of charisma and chemistry.

  • Excerpt: As the head writer of a sketch-comedy show on 30 Rock , Tina Fey played a woman who served as both the thin wall separating her workplace from anarchy and an agent of chaos herself. It was her existential lot in life to keep everything together for her coworkers while just barely holding it together herself.

  • Summary: A sort-of, but not exactly, rom-com with people you like, actors you adore, and a few jokes thrown in for good measure.
