Tina Fey and Paul Rudd star in director Paul Weitz's comedy about an uptight Princeton admissions officer who encounters a teenage prodigy who may be her long-lost son while recruiting students from an alternative high school. Years ago, Portia Nathan (Fey) quietly placed her newborn son up for adoption. Now she's got a great career recruiting students for Princeton University. Then, one day, she receives an unexpected call from her free-spirited college classmate John Pressman (Rudd), who runs an alternative high school that's home to some very gifted students. One such student is Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), whom John believes could be the son that Portia gave up for adoption back in her youth. Meanwhile, as Portia puts her career in jeopardy by altering Jeremiah's transcript, an unexpected romance begins to blossom. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I was expecting this to be much more comedy than it was and I was slightly disappointed about that. But I tried to not let that ruin the movie. I think some of the reviewers just couldn't get past that it wasn't a comedy. It was a good movie. I was really moved by the ending with Portia finally wanting to get in touch with the child she gave up for adoption and how John realized staying in the states was best for his son. And how Portia's mom even admitted her own faults. I would watch this movie again. I am glad Tina Fey and Paul Rudd stepped up and showed they can be more than strictly a comedic actor.
