Now is a busy season for movies, by which I mean that it is a busy season for movie trailers: Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook, the gorgeous (seriously gorgeous) Anna Karenina — it’s a visual fall feast.

This makes the arrival of Admission (the trailer for) its own sort of treat. The Paul Weitz-directed and Tina Fey-starring adaptation comes off well in these three minutes, by which I mean that the footage is daffy, generous and buoyant. It’s a nice counter to all the awards-heavy brooding.

The trailer has another surprise, too, in pairing Fey with Paul Rudd. She’s a thirtysomething admissions counselor at Princeton. He’s a teacher and single father. Sparks, banter, etc. — by which I mean that I am all about a Fey/Rudd pairing.

But why stop now? There are so many more books for adapting and movies for co-starring in. »
