Fey and Rudd's Admission trailer should've looked better
Admission, the story of a Princeton admissions counselor (Fey), who is reunited with the son she gave up for adoption by his hippie high school teacher (Rudd), looks awful. Besides being a predictable premise -- we get in, Rudd and Fey are meant o be together...whatever -- the jokes aren't funny.
Fey has made her mark as one of the funniest women in show business by being real. And by being on SNL. Here she relies on cheap comedy and tired situations for a generic comedy that we've seen before. Rudd has made a few flops in his day, so expectations can be lower for him (although This is 40 is seems very promising), but we expect more out of Fey.
The trailer for Admission promises us awkward situations that we expect and nothing too interesting or surprising.
