Life of the Party


After dropping off her daughter for her final semester of University, Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) is shocked when her husband tells her he is seeking a divorce. Single again, Deanna decides to resume her pre-family interrupted University studies and finds herself socialising with her own daughter's classmates.

What could have been an amusing generation clash tale is mostly unfunny, at times irritating and occasionally unpleasant. The few moments of genuine humour become lost opportunities as 'Life of the Party' races on to the next unfunny situation.

Misses the mark.
