Movie Review: Admission
I never got to see this movie in theaters because it’s difficult for Tina Fey to keep a movie in theaters longer than 3 weeks, and I don’t always have the time to see every single movie. I really enjoyed this movie because it’s a feel good family movie with Paul Rudd and Tina Fey. It’s a cute little story that deals with the enormous pressure that comes with getting into a prestigious college from both perspectives of the student and the admissions officer. Getting into Princeton is no easy task, and the movie proves that you have be absolutely perfect or you have no chance of being admitted to the school.
There is one particular scene where the students appear in the room with the admissions committee as a figment of their imagination so that the admissions officer can get a visual of the person that they are accepting or denying. The special effects that they used during this scene were a nice touch to add perspective and depth to the plot and characters in the film. If you are a college student, this scene will make you feel like you are small and insignificant because at Princeton, you not only have to be the best, you have to beat the best.
The ending is really cute; I won’t spoil it for you. Paul Rudd and Tina Fey would make a cute couple in real life. I feel like their personalities mesh well with each other. They have really good on-screen chemistry, and I kind of wish they would be in more movies together. I don’t understand the effect that Tina Fey has on the box office. I don’t know if it’s bad marketing, boring story lines, or something else, because I love Tina Fey. She’s a great actress.
My score: 6/10
