I recently stumbled across a film called Admission, starring Tina Fey (Mean Girls, Saturday Night Live) and Paul Rudd (Anchorman, This is 40). Occasionally Paul Rudd signs on for films that move away from his usual slapstick comedy to focus on the character. This is 40, Clueless and I Could Never Be Your Woman are examples of this. I actually think these are Paul at his best, he manages to bring just the right amount of humour to make you laugh but can also make you feel emotional. So when I read what this film was about I thought I’d check it out.
Admission follows Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) who is an admissions officer at Princeton University. She meets John Pressman (Paul Rudd) who introduces her to an unusual teen that he teaches and wants to go to college. Not only that but he may just be the son she gave up for adoption when she herself was at college.
The film is a lovely story of a woman stuck in a life that she thinks she is happy in until she meets some people that change her perspective. If you are looking for a lovely film about love and fighting for what you believe in then you will enjoy this film.

Fey and Rudd are the perfect duo
I'd love to see more films starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, they are both brilliant comedians and have great onscreen chemistry.
