Admission is an American film about a woman who works as an admissions officer at Princeton University, and after she is informed that an applicant to Princeton could be her son, she does everything possible to try and get him into the college, despite his poor track record at school.

This film, like some others, had two very different stories in one. On one side, there was the story about the admittance of students, and all of that, which I found funny enough, and interesting enough.

However, the other side was a romance story between a teacher (Paul Rudd) and the admissions office (Tina Fey). The problem with this side to the story was that it just seemed to randomly pop up in the middle of the movie, with absolutely no explanation to how these two people fell in love, making it a very confusing plot to follow.

The comedy in this film wasn’t the greatest, but the general atmosphere of this film was very pleasant, so it was still nice to watch, so that’s why I’ll give it a 6.5.
