'Admission' Review Roundup: Critics Like Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, Not Much Else

Admission, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, is this week's big new comedy – unless a movie Rob Schneider and the ShamWow guy made together called inAPPropriate Comedy turns out to be much better than it sounds. While the reviews for Admission are faring a lot better than those for inAPPropriate Comedy, they're still pretty mixed.

First Trailer for 'Admission': Finally, Tina Fey and Paul Rudd Make a Movie Together

Here's the new trailer for a comedy called Admission that stars Tina Fey as a Princeton admissions officer and Paul Rudd as a guy who has some shocking news for her. Admission was directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy, American Dreamz) and also stars Lily Tomlin, Michael Shannon, and Wallace Shawn. It comes out on March 8, 2013, which sounds way farther away than it really is. This is Tina Fey's first movie in three years (since 2010's Date Night) because she's been busy with 30 Rock and that whole "raising a family" thing. It's Paul Rudd's billionth move in the last year. Not that I'm complaining; he's [...]
