Review – Admission

Okay, Tina Fey. Enough with the sitcoms about successful, intelligent women completely obsessed with child bearing. This time around she’s an admissions officer for Princeton, obsessed with the notion that a brilliant-yet-unorthodox applicant is actually the child she secretly gave up for adoption 18 years earlier. As is sadly all too typical of Fey’s work, the picture sports a few highly entertaining moments that fail to save it from ending up as another run-of-the-mill relationship comedy. Mildly amusing
