ADMISSION is a movie about  modern parenting.  The offbeat, charming humor that is TINA FEY 's signature style makes the Portia Nathan character delightful. As admissions officer for the illustrious Princeton University it is her job to weed out the applicants. She is well paired with PAUL RUDD who plays John Pressman,  a teacher in an alternative high school who believes he has found a perfect student for the prestigious university. To add to my pleasure with this movie, LILY TOMLIN plays Susannah, Portia's mother.
I truly enjoyed this PAUL WEITZ feature. It is not uproariously funny, it is funny because we recognize our own human foibles through the characters.
