Fey stars as a college admissions officer who works for one of the most coveted universities in the country, Princeton. Rudd plays an old classmate who contacts her and tells her that he thinks one of the kids in his class could be the son she gave up for adoption when she was in college.
The plot might sound more drama than comedy, but as you can tell from the trailer, there are plenty of laughs and light fare to keep things moving along at a non-serious pace. Casting Lily Tomlin as Fey’s mother in the film certainly doesn’t hurt the comedic aspect of things either.
If you’re as excited as we are to see an onscreen pairing of Fey and Rudd, you’ll have to be patient. “Admission” won’t hit theaters until March 8, 2013.
