First Trailer for Paul Weitz's 'Admission' with Tina Fey & Paul Rudd

Why haven't Tina Fey and Paul Rudd done a movie before now? That's exactly what was running through my head while watching the trailer for Admission, a new comedy from director Paul Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy). This looks like kind of film we would fall in love with at Sundance (which isn't too far away), and considering it's a Focus Features film and it doesn't hit theaters until March, I'm betting the film could make its premiere there like Cedar Rapids last year. Fey and Rudd look to be a charming on-screen duo, and I have a soft spot for Weitz ever since he defined my teen years with American Pie in 1999. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Paul Weitz's new comedy Admission, originally from Yahoo:

Admission is directed by Paul Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy, In Good Company) and written by Karen Croner and Jean Hanff Korelitz. The film follows Tina Fey as Portia Nathan, an admissions officer for Princeton University who finds herself recruiting at a strange just "keep livin" commune headed by her former college classmate (Paul Rudd). Things get confusingly complicated when she unexpectedly discovers that one of his students may just be her teenage son that she gave up for adoption years ago. Michael Sheen and Lily Tomlin also star in the film which Focus Features sends to theaters in spring on March 8th, 2013.

    While I also enjoyed American Pie when I was a younger man, I really don't see that sort of humor being conveyed here. This is definitely taking a turn more towards the sort of film he made with In Good Company and About a Boy, which didn't have the same sort of draw for me in enjoyment. What may be the one saving grace for this film is Tina Fey. I really think this one might help to determine if she has the acting chops to tackle more dramatic roles in her future. She's a proven comedic talent, but I think she might surprise folks into taking her as a serious actress here. Paul Rudd is his usual self, and the supporting cast look to be average as well. Not a movie I'll make a serious attempt to see in theaters at this point, but anything could change with further updates.
  • Look forward to seeing it late night on cable.

    Looks good...always have liked Gloria Reuben. Tina Fey can do anything, I believe. Not quite sure about the singin' and dancin', but, you know....
