I just got my hands on a new trailer for Tina Fey’s and Paul Rudd’s admission, which seems like perfect timing for the two stars. Rudd is still riding high from any praise being directed at This is 40 and Tina Fey is ending the 30 Rock run and has a lot of potential to make the transition into film. Maybe. This new film could indicate whether either of these funny people with have any staying power in Hollywood so let’s check it out and see:
Tina Fey (Date Night, 30 Rock) and Paul Rudd (I Love You Man, Knocked Up, This is 40) star in Admission, the new film directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Weitz (About a Boy), about the surprising detours we encounter on the road to happiness. Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted — but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.
