Admission is a perfectly inoffensive, bland tale that aims to wrench heartstrings with the same kind of forced earnestness that occupies most heterogeneous blends of comedy and drama.
Charming. A refreshing topic and setting for a romance between opposites. Tina Fey plays by-the-book Princeton admissions officer Portia Nathan. Pa...
You can count on one hand the number of good romantic comedies in any given year. Not that people aren't making them -- they just don't do them very well. Which is why Admission is such a treat.

As a fan of Tina Fey, Paul Rudd and director Paul Weitz, I looked forward to hearing what words of wisdom they would impart about parenting and the college admissions process. Here are some snippets.
The star-studded opening was enough to cause the nine cigar-chomping, beer-drinking guys I was playing poker with to actually freeze an "All-In" raise, mid-hand, in order to watch it as it happened.
I'm proud to be a woman and nobody's ever accused me of being too accommodating, but there's a few conversations around women that have been amusing me lately.

Whenever I try to think of a business role model, I come up with a woman. Perhaps I'm prejudiced in favour of female entrepreneurs.
Saying goodbye to you during the "30 Rock" series finale was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. But my sadness can never overcome the overwhelming feeling of gratitude I have towards your fictitious, fabulous self.
Well nerds... after seven seasons on air and winning 14 Primetime Emmys and six Golden Globes, 30 Rock has come to its end. Looking back on the series, there have been so many amazing episodes, and equally amazing guest stars.
Last night, millions of viewers bid farewell to one of television's most beloved characters of all time: Liz Lemon. For so many of us awkward, nerdy, trying-to-make-it-in-this-crazy-world gals, she was an icon. For me, specifically, the Other Liz was a hero.
Six years ago I met Liz Lemon, a woman with brown hair, glasses, a love of sandwiches and a penchant for blazers. In her, Tina Fey created a character that could appeal to pretty much every kind of audience and not just man/woman.
Is calling out "Women in..." really helping us move closer to true gender equality, an equality that continues to lag beyond all reason, ability and time? Or, in doing this, are we just ghettoizing and separating women, and thus slowing progress?
