Good film that could've been majorly better, "Admission" is a sweet little rom-com with all the typical rom-com tropes, nothing surprised me with the story, it was very predictable and lacked any real twists, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing and doesn't make it poor or boring in any way. Tina Fey has always been an actress I've admired ever since she started in the film business, granted she's no Meryl Streep or Audrey Hepburn, but there's a lot of untapped talent there, she deserves the chance at bigger roles like her co-star Paul Rudd did starring as the titular character in Ant Man. Rudd is a good actor and seems to thrive in these kind of films, Ant Man was probably punching above his weight somewhat, but throw him into a cheesy rom-com or general comedy film and he excels. The one great annoyance I had with "Admission" was the ending, yes it was predictable but still had the potential to be so much better; personally I would have kept Jeremiah as her son, and along with John and young Nelson, they could've started a loving family together, that would've been so much sweeter and pretty much give the audience what they were begging for, sometimes the most obvious ending is the best option, as in this case. I scored "Admission" quite high because I generally enjoyed it, it was a quaint little film that didn't ask too much from the audience, just sit back, switch your mind off and enjoy, maybe it didn't deserve being scored so high, it's actual score of 5.7 seemed appropriate, but I'm feeling generous and at least it put a smile on my face.
