High-school head (Rudd) suspects that one of his most gifted pupils (Wolff) is the son of his old college pal, Portia (Fey). She's now an Ivy League admission clerk with the power to twist the rules in the boy's favour - and the risks that come with it.
Occasionally charming but mostly bland fare from Weitz, despite the reliable cast. About A Boy remains the best showcase of his talents.
