ADMISSION SOUNDTRACK Features Songs By A Fine Frenzy, Vassy & Jem
Songs in Paul Rudd & Tina Fey Movie
What's not to love about a movie featuring the always adorable Paul Rudd and equally likeable former 30 Rock and SNL star, Tina Fey.
If you're looking for all the music in the Tina Fey movie Admission, you won't find it on the official soundtrack. The only thing that's been released is the movie's score by Stephen Trask but most of the songs are available as individual song downloads and you'll find those listed here.
For this college themed movie, music supervisor Linda Cohen selected for the Admission Soundtrack songs by A Fine Frenzy, Vassy, Jem, Christy Carew, Michael Levine, Correatown, The Princeton Nassons, Christy Carew, Flip Grater, Future People, Kat Edmonson, Hampton Hawes, Azure Ray, Kinky and David Torn. Cohen's filmography includes finding music for the soundtracks to Young Adult, Joyful Noise & Argo.
Music score is by Stephen Trask who composed cues for J-Lo's The Back-up Plan. 11 tracks from Trask's score were released on the movie's official soundtrack which only includes the movie's score. The track "Waitlisted" appears twice with an alternate version included as well. The Admission O.S.T. was released on March 19, 2013. Preview music editor is Charles Martin Inouye.
Getting us hyped up about the movie are some of the great songs you might have heard in the movie's trailers which include "What I Wouldn't Do" by a Fine Frenzy and "We Are Young" by Vassy which are also heard in the film. The other songs which appeared on preview trailers are "Saw You First" by Givers and "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men.
With his guy next door good looks, I was hoping Paul Rudd's latest collaboration with funny lady Tina Fey would be a winning combination and correct his previous hit or miss track record as a leading man. Stinkers like Wanderlust with Jennifer Aniston and How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon bombed at the box office. It looks like Admission falls right in line. According to BoxOfficeMojo, the movie grossed just under $18 million. This is 40 which was released in December 2012 fared somewhat better, taking in over $88 million worldwide.
In addition to Tina Fey & Paul Rudd the cast of Admission includes Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, Gloria Reuben, Nat Wolff and veteran of stage, screen & tv, comedienne Lily Tomlin. Admission was released March 22, 2013 but if you want to get a jump on the movie, you can read the book it's based on by Jean Hanff Korelitz that chronicles the insane process of applying to colleges. The movie is now out on Blu-Ray / DVD. It was released July 9, 2013.

On an interview on the ASCAP website, composer Stephen Trask talks about trying to break down the task of songwriting to a more intimate, personal level by recording in his own studios, bouncing between the one in L.A. and Kentucky. He explains how once you start getting the corporate gig of movie soundtrack scoring, how it can get to be such a large production that you sometimes get disconnected from the process.

Admission Movie Trailers - Starring Paul Rudd & Tina Fey
There's something about Tina Fey as a school administrator that seems like a winning premise. We loved her in Mean Girls when she played an exasperated high school teacher to a young Lindsay Lohan trying to minimize bullying. In Admission she's weird, quirky and wonderful as a college admissions officer with comedienne Lily Tomlin playing her Mom in this romantic comedy starring our favorite movie boyfriend Paul Rudd.

Paul Rudd has had a great career filled with beautiful and funny leading ladies including two Friends stars having played Phoebe's fiancée on the television series and starring in not one by two movies with Jennifer Aniston including the recent box office flop Wanderlust and The Object of My Affection. Other beauties include Reese Witherspoon and Judd Apatow's wife Leslie Mann who he's also played opposite twice as her husband in This is 40 and Knocked Up.
Paul Rudd Plays It Straight
We're so used to Paul Rudd playing scenes funny that it's easy to forget that he's a fine actor as well. In this clip "Am I Screwing It Up?", Paul Rudd's character confides to Tina Fey that he doesn't have everything figured out and wonders if he's done everything alright.
"Dude, What a Cougar" - Yo -- what's up
In this awkward scene, Tina Fey throws on a sweatshirt with a hoodie and a jacket on top hopping to blend in unnoticed into a frat party. But she gets busted right away. She prattles on as she crashes the Princeton party unsuccessfully. Cringe-worthy and funny at the same time, she quickly admits that she's from Admissions and spins a tale that she's checking in on her high school visitors.
"How Many People Call You Mom?" - Co-Starring Lily Tomlin
Doesn't Lily Tomlin look great? Her timing is always spot on. What you see in this clip is a rarity -- two Mark Twain Prize award winners, both Lily Tomlin and Tina Fey are both recipients of the prestigious award given out at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Fey was awarded the honor in 2010, while Tomlin accepted the award in 2003.

Two More Ways to See Paul Rudd This Year
Prince Avalanche - Release Date: August 9, 2013
Paul Rudd recently appeared on David Letterman. He had the tough time of following Oprah Winfrey so she got a lot of chair time while Rudd had a brief segment to talk about Prince Avalanche. The good thing is that he didn't have on his scruffy mustache that he sported while shooting the sequel to Anchorman.
