OK, let's get the bad stuff over. People say it's predictable. Yes and no...has enough surprises to keep you in your seat. People say it's not a comedy. Yeah, and your point? There are plenty of great movies that aren't laugh out loud funny. Lily Tomlin's character is a scream and very endearing. The comedy is subtle, so those wanting Tina Fey's SNL guffaws will be unhappy. People say it's not relevant since it deals with admissions at an elitist school. Huh? I guess Independence Day isn't relevant because we've never had invaders from outer space. The rest of the asinine comments I read here prior to seeing it aren't even worth debunking.
I really, really liked it. The interactions were believable and amusing. There were enough little off shoot subplots to keep me interested. And I'm pretty easily distracted and bored. I tend to get antsy and watch my watch if movies don't flow along at a good little clip.
It is not for young kids. They will be bored. It it not for the high action/adventure people. It is for folks who like an amusing story well told.

Straitlaced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the freewheeling John Pressman (Paul 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.
