Melissa McCarthy Heads Back To College In ‘Life Of The Party’

Melissa McCarthy is channeling a little 80s Rodney Dangerfield action for her new comedy, Life Of The Party. The 47-year-old actress heads back to college like the late actor’s classic comedy, Back To School. Love that movie.

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turns regret into re-set by going back to college… landing in the same class and school as her daughter (Molly Gordon), who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna—now Dee Rock—embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

Life of the Party is another collaboration between McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone. He previously directed McCarthy in Tammy and The Boss. The film also stars Gillian Jacobs, Maya Rudolph, Julie Bowen, Matt Walsh, Stephen Root and Jacki Weaver. The comedy arrives May 11. Check out the trailer below.
