“30 Rock” is ending, which means Tina Fey will be taking a swing at feature films. So far she’s had mixed results with “Baby Mama” in the miss column, and “Date Night” in the hit column. As for “Admission“? Well, let’s take a gander shall we?
The first trailer is here and if it feels like it was brought to you by the director of “About A Boy,” that’s becuase it is. Paul Weitz is at the helm in a story which seems more or less like a gender flip of his hit a decade ago, with a young woman who finds herself drawn to the most wholesome guy imaginable, played by Paul Rudd. It all looks politely enjoyable we suppose, though part of us wishes there was just a slight edge to the proceedings. But maybe that’s just the trailer and certainly with Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, Gloria Reuben, Nat Wolff and Lily Tomlin in support, there could be a few nice surprises.
Based on the book by Jean Hanff Korelitz, “Admission” checks in on March 8, 2013. Watch below.
