  • Admission

    Portia Nathan (Tina Fey), an admissions officer for Princeton, is a no-nonsense employee who’s up for a big promotion. She tells prospective students to simply be themselves, but finds herself in a dilemma when a founder of a New Age school (Paul Rudd) introduces her to an applicant with horrible grades and absolutely no chance of getting into the prestigious school. What’s the dilemma? The applicant (Nat Wolff) might be the boy she gave up for adoption years before.

    ClearPlay In Action!

    Language is the biggest issue with Admission, with about 60 instances, including two F-words, trimmed by ClearPlay. Some scenes are also trimmed involving implied intercourse and bodily functions. There are some interesting conflicts in the movie, and ClearPlayed, the movie should appeal to serious students of the family.

    Does Admission receive high marks?...

    Admission is a quiet comedy with few laugh-out-loud moments, but it’s almost always engaging thanks to the intelligence of Fey and sincerity of Rudd. The movie doesn’t go for the cheap laughs, instead focusing on characters, relationships, and an intriguing look at the behind-the-scenes world of academics. Admission doesn’t ace the advanced placement tests, but its essay is solid and its resume stands tall as well.
