'Admission' Trailer: Tina Fey Meets Her Long-Lost Son, and Paul Rudd


From Paul Weitz, director of About a Boy, here's another narration-filled tale of unexpected parenthood that will nonetheless win your reluctant approval with its impossible-to-hate leads. Tina Fey plays a charming, single, child-free Princeton admissions officer up for a big promotion against a smug parent who thinks having a few stick figures on the back of her minivan makes her more qualified for the job. Paul Rudd plays "a [charming] single dad, traveling the world with his kid [and] doing good," which apparently means reuniting admissions officers with the long-lost sons they gave away in college. It also means Paul Rudd and Tina Fey falling in love, because all that likability inevitably leads to like-liking, and then probably more unexpected children, all leading up to Admission 2: Gettin' In.

Here's the trailer. Very safe for work. It is pretty much impossible to be offended by this.

This should be playing on loop in Starbucks, quietly comforting lonely, over-caffeinated white people with the assurance they'll one day have an entire charming family plopped in their laps wholesale.
