Portia (Fey) is an uptight admissions officer at Princeton, whose life is shaken up when she meets John (Rudd), a laid-back teacher at an alternative high school. Admission tries to combine life-crisis drama with rom-com, but the leads are uncharacteristically charmless and the clichéd script takes itself far too seriously.

Uninspired academia-set romcom starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd
