Plot Summary

Tina Fey (Date Night, 30 Rock) and Paul Rudd (I Love You Man, Knocked Up) star in Admission, the new film directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Weitz (About a Boy), about the surprising detours we encounter on the road to happiness. Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted--but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

Top Critics' Reviews

Granted, this is not automatic laugh-riot material, nor should it be, but didn't Fey recognize how hackneyed it all is?
Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor - March 22, 2013


If Fey ends up making movies as good as this one over the next few years, television's loss will have been cinema's gain, for real.
Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies - March 22, 2013


You'll be glad you enrolled.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger - March 22, 2013


Some films are electric - Admission settles for alternating current.
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail - March 22, 2013
