Admission movie: Domestic Box office bomb Paul Rudd hasn't been at all lucky at the Us/Canada box office. His latest star vehicle, the Paul Weitz-directed (About a Boy, In Good Company) comedy Admission, co-starring 30 Rock's Tina Fey, is his most recent box-office flop, following the costly James L.

Who’S It For? If you’re a fan of Fey, this is a questionable matinee at best. Rudd-lovers might as well stay home and watch him in any other romantic comedy. The two as a duo certainly isn’t enough to guarantee that seeing this film would be worth it.
