Admission (12A)

Comedy, Drama, Romance

A Princeton admissions officer who is up for a major promotion takes a professional risk after she meets a college-bound alternative school kid who just might be the son she gave up years ago in a secret adoption.

The critical consensus

Admission is disappointing rather than disastrous but it's desperately lacking in spark and individuality.

**(*)(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 11/06/2013

Marooned between comedy and drama.

**(*)(*)(*)Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 14/06/2013

Occasionally charming but mostly bland fare from Weitz, despite the reliable cast. About A Boy remains the best showcase of his talents.

**(*)(*)(*)James White, Empire Online, 14/06/2013

This is the last thing fans of Fey will want to pay to see.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 13/06/2013

What we need is a feature project written by and starring Fey and Poehler.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 13/06/2013

You wonder how anything that stars Fey and Rudd and Wallace Shawn and Lily Tomlin (as her rad-fem mother) could fail, but it does, and abjectly.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 14/06/2013

Romantic and family complications ensue but nothing especially memorable or purposeful. Or funny.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 13/06/2013

Half-baked, rather unpleasant.
