Tina Fey & Paul Rudd were probably as bored with making this movie as I was watching it.

this is the worst movie ever it was such a waist of time and money

I had hopes that this would be at least mildly entertaining, since I really get tired of the very offensive R movies. I do like the actors, but they really must have had nothing else to do to be bothered with this one. Almost left out of boredom. No stars.

Admission was a very good film...more of a light drama with amusing moments. Thoughtful dialogue and engaging story. Giving it 4 stars, maybe one-half too many, but I wanted to compensate for some of the low ratings. Better than most of the trash produced by Hollywood these days.

Very disappointing, boring , waste of money & time. A big disconconect between the script , direction & the actors . A major yawn !

Admission has some sublime moments, most of them involving Fey and Rudd dancing around their inevitable romance. The problem is in the foundation. Full Review

Largely because of its engaging cast, Admission is an amiable, but only slightly-above-average, comic romp. Full Review

That first half of Admission is a lot for an actress to overcome. It’s not just very bad, it’s very fast, as if someone had overwound the metronome. Fairly naturalistic lines are delivered at the pace of screwball zingers — which stubbornly refuse to zing. Full Review

Where "About a Boy" was both funny and wise about urban alienation, Admission settles for skin deep. Full Review

It’s as if Weitz knows he’s got a corpse of a film on his hands -- never trust a movie when it feels as though you can see the director clasping the defibrillator. Full Review
