Admission Synopsis
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.

Weekend Box Office: Olympus Falls To The Croods As Admission Faces Rejection Weekend Box Office: Olympus Falls To The Croods As Admission Faces Rejection
Perhaps looking to follow up on their success with the Ice Age series of movies, Fox released the highly mediocre but also highly franchisable The Croods this weekend. The reception in theaters wasn't record breaking, but it was enough to give the movie a solid Spring Break number one debut, leaving star studded Olympus Has Fallen in the dust....

The Croods And Surprisingly Big Olympus Has Fallen Dominate Friday Box Office The Croods And Surprisingly Big Olympus Has Fallen Dominate Friday Box Office
Though there are pretty much no guarantees at the box office-- studios will pump hundreds of millions of dollars into films that seem like sure things and go on to be bombs-- it's hard to go wrong with an animated children's film around the season of spring break. DreamWorks Animation, which needed a hit after last fall's disappointing Rise of the Guardians , scored another this weekend with The Croods, which made $11.6 million on Friday and is on track for a $42 million weekend...

Tina Fey Asks Paul Rudd For A Role In Anchorman 2, And More On Admission Tina Fey Asks Paul Rudd For A Role In Anchorman 2, And More On Admission
In the film, Rudd and Fey share such a dynamic comedic chemistry that it's shocking they haven't been teamed up before! And the witty back-and-forth I witnessed on screen played out in real life when the two participated in a round table interview, stuffed with eager interviewers, a few weeks back....

Nat Wolff Talks Tina Fey, Admission, And Bonding With A Baby Cow Nat Wolff Talks Tina Fey, Admission, And Bonding With A Baby Cow
It was murky day in New York City when Wolff walked into a roundtable interview packed to the gills with reporters, and he was all sunshine and easy charm. He chatted with the lot of us about playing a character far smarter than himself (or most people for that matter), working with a director he admired, a comedienne he idolized, and how his work on the movie has impacted his own college admissions process and eating habits. ...

Admission Director Paul Weitz: 'If Tina Fey Wasn't Up For It, There Was No Point In Doing It' Admission Director Paul Weitz: 'If Tina Fey Wasn't Up For It, There Was No Point In Doing It'
It seems insane that Tina Fey and Paul Rudd have never worked together on a film before, given how important each of them has been to pretty much all the good comedy that's come along in the last decade. At long last, in this Friday's Admission, Fey and Rudd team up in a classic rom-com conflict-- Fey as a Princeton admissions officer struggling to hold on to her controlled life in this rarefied world, and Rudd as the crunchy do-gooder who's aiming to shake her up even more...

Tina Fey Might Have A Long Lost Son In New Trailer For Admission Tina Fey Might Have A Long Lost Son In New Trailer For Admission
Waiting around for college acceptance letters can be one of the most stressful times in a young persons life. I personally remember sprinting home from school every day and going straight to the mailbox - only to have a mild panic attack when I would find it empty (funny enough I wound up getting my acceptance notification by email before it arrived in the post)....

This March, Focus Features has Admission set to arrive in theaters.

The trailer for the film has arrived and it gives us an idea of what's in store for Fey's character as she juggles her job and her personal life, which seem to be crossing with one another. ...

Lost Star Sonya Walger Joining Tina Fey, Paul Rudd In Admission Lost Star Sonya Walger Joining Tina Fey, Paul Rudd In Admission
Weitz has been up and down since 1999’s American Pie and About a Boy in 2002. American Dreamz and Little Fockers were – in our humble opinion – misses. But Admission, on paper, has so much potential. Oddly enough, it’s Fey who could use the boost, at least in the feature-film realm. Rudd has been delivering a string of fantastic comedies, and has another Judd Apatow collaboration in This is 40....

Paul Rudd May Join Tina Fey In Admission, Instead Of Owen Wilson Paul Rudd May Join Tina Fey In Admission, Instead Of Owen Wilson
The plot description as provided by the Times reads a little differently, revealing that Rudd's character would be someone Fey knew in high school but never got to know, and that Rudd has been thinking about her all this time. That sounds even more complicated than the initial love triangle we learned about, but also way more fun to watch...

Tina Fey And Owen Wilson May Team Up For Admission Tina Fey And Owen Wilson May Team Up For Admission
Though Tina Fey is an undisputed queen of TV comedy, the 30 Rock creator and star has been less successful in translating her wonderful brand of humor to the big screen with such middling, broad comedies as Baby Mama and Date Night. However Fey fans may soon have reason to rejoice, as their favorite comedienne is currently considering committing to Paul Weitz’s probable next feature Admission, an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz's insightful novel. ...
