Critic Reviews for The College Admissions Scandal
What saves The College Admission Scandal from total camp is [Penelope Ann] Miller, who really rings true as a mom who loves her son and is deeply ashamed about what she's done.
Obviously, this is a bit of a hasty cut-and-paste job. Yet at its best, the movie effectively illustrates the cynical calculus that these parents made, as well as the rationalizations employed to justify their actions.
It's less an oily TV movie than an afterschool special for adults. You won't learn anything knew, but you may delight in witnessing a few insecure idiots get flushed down the toilet.
There's unfortunately much too little about the real victims here-the hundreds of kids those spots belonged to in the first place, which they were robbed of due to a heartless mercenary conspiracy rooted in class privilege.
The crimes here seem heinous because they subvert meritocracy, and this Lifetime movie-with its strokes of low-brow expressionism, inadvertently funny production values, clever lead performances-converts the news story into an exhilarating nightmare.
