Admission Movie Giveaway: Tina Fey Prize Pack

Do you ever feel like you are having one of these kinds of days? Yeah, me too.

Honestly, that’s one of the reasons I love to escape with trips to the movie theater whenever I can, especially for romantic comedies such as Admission. I’ve been drawn to the movie ever since I saw the preview months and months ago.

Well now the wait is almost over, because Admission, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, is out on March 22 from Focus Features.

About the movie:

Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted — but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

What I didn’t realize until I was prepping this post is that Admission is based on a book, one that Dawn reviewed at 5 Minutes for Books four years ago when it came out. She’s revisited the book, so be sure to check out her Books on Screen post today at 5 Minutes for Books.

And if there’s anything better than escaping to the movies, it’s definitely a free trip to the movies!

    I don’t like to read a book, then see the movie. It’s never as I pictured it while I was reading. I wouldn’t have the desire to read a book after I’ve seen the movie and know how it ends.

  2. Julie says

    Ialways like to see movies that started as books! Even if they sometimes miss my interpretation completely I like to see the artistic choices and cuts they’ve made for the movie version! <3 tina fey!

  3. Sarah K says

    I like reading the book but am slightly disappointed in the movie when they change things or leave them out.

  4. says

    I can’t wait to see this!!! I’m really hit or miss on liking books turned into movies. If I’m really passionate about the book I often don’t see the movie.

  5. Jennifer Haislip says

    Yes, but always book first. The movie gets so much more leeway if I do, because I fill in the holes in my head. I don’t think there are too many movies that have really, really done the book justice.

  6. Anita Yancey says

    I do like to read books that have been made into movies. I always find that I like the book best and feel let down by the movie, because they usually change so much when they make the movie.

  7. Louis says

    usually I watch the movie, and then get interested in the book :)

  8. Ellie W says

    Yes I do. I have to read the book before seeing the movie though. I can’t do it the other way around.

  9. says

    For me, it depends on the book and the movie. I tend to prefer reading the book first to compare but often like movies better…so it depends!

  10. Linda Kish says

    Oh, yeah, even if I already saw the movie, I still like to read the book too.

  11. Tammy S says

    I do like to read books that have been made into movies. I always like to read the book first though. I usually like the book better then the movie.

  12. Karen Lynch says

    Yes, I try to read them before I see it. Currently rereading City of Bones to refresh my memory since it has been a while since I read it.

  13. Christina Z says

    Yes I love to read books that have been turned into movies they are the best just sometimes they dont live up to as great as the book read was.

  14. says

    I do like to read the book before the movie. Especially ones that I don’t KNOW are going to be turned into a movie. I read the Host last year, it was really good, and it’s coming out at the end of the month. Super cool!

  15. Heather says

    Yes and no. If its an action one it sometimes doesn’t translate well. In my opinion but I love romantic ones plus I love Tina fey am Paul Rudd.

  16. Susan P. says

    I like reading the book and seeing the movie – sometimes I’m disappointed by the movie but usually not!

  17. jennifer daniell says

    It really just depends. They can be hit or miss! I always have high hopes for movies from books but typically they miss the mark. That being said the LOTR movies and Harry Potter films are still really great!

  18. Leidy says

    I like to either read the book or watch the movie, I really don’t do both because I don’t like to be disappointed if the movie doesn’t exactly follow the book

  19. Wild Orchid says

    Yes, books can sometimes be quite a bit different!

  20. Jamie C. says

    I do like when they make movies based on a book only when the movie tries their best to stay true to the book!

  21. LaSonia Lesley says

    Yes I do but sometimes I like to read the book AFTER seeing the movie because if I read the book first sometimes the movie doesn’t live up to the hype.

  22. Susan Christy says

    It is interesting to see how they change things from the book to the movie to create more on-screen action.

  23. Cassandra D. says

    I do enjoy reading the book before seeing the movie. Though sometimes it’s extremely frustrating because they change things so much.

  24. Margot C says

    Sure I do it all the time; usually I’ve read the book and a year later or so they make a movie. I read a lot!

  25. Brandy W. says

    Sure, but I have to read the book first because they are always so much better and I don’t associate the actors with the characters.
