Admission isn’t really a good comedy, or a good drama, but merely a mediocre film that wastes the enormous comedic talents of Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Fey plays an admissions officer at Princeton who realizes she may have found her son she gave up for adoption, something she certainly wasn’t looking for. While that central premise has quite a bit of ambition in where it could head, the movie ultimately stays grounded and relies on simple jokes and jabs. It never amounts to much, but it’s not a terrible film, for it sets up a worthy story that gets squandered in its final moments. The movie backtracks what it has set up, and gives us a tale that comes across as unfocused as it presumably is.
