Look (UK) - - PROMOTION -

Time for a girls’ night out with your mum or a bunch of friends? You’re in luck. Melissa Mccarthy’s brand new film Life of the Party is out on Thurs­day 10 May. What’s the story?

Melissa Mccarthy (hi­lar­i­ous!) stars as Deanna, 40-some­thing house­wife re­cently dumped by her hus­band for a younger model (Julie Bowen). Reel­ing from the shock, she de­cides it’s time to make a few changes. No more re­grets… she’s go­ing back to col­lege to get a de­gree. Yay! Ex­cept for one small de­tail – she ends up in the same class as her daugh­ter, who’s not quite so sold on the idea.

Deanna – now Dee Rock – plunges head-first into cam­pus life, em­brac­ing her new-found free­dom by mak­ing out with col­lege boys, dress­ing like her daugh­ter and gen­er­ally hang­ing out at frat par­ties. Cue plenty of Lol-wor­thy mo­ments. Rau­cous com­edy aside, this is a story about sec­ond chances in life and it’s a touch­ing look at the mother/daugh­ter re­la­tion­ship. Life of the Party is the ul­ti­mate feel-good film to take your mum or bestie to, any­one, in fact, who needs a good laugh – you’ll thank us for it. Hon­est.

Who’s in it?

Mccarthy is joined by Brides­maids co-star, Maya Ru­dolph, as neu­rotic best friend, Chris­tine. Molly Gordon is daugh­ter Mad­die, and Matt Walsh (Veep, Ted) plays her selfish, soon-tobe ex-hus­band. Mccarthy co-wrote the screen­play with real-life hus­band and di­rec­tor Ben Fal­cone.

Why should i care?

Er, be­cause it’s Melissa Mccarthy who is too funny. And, if you were a fan of com­edy hit Brides­maids, you’ll love it! In cin­e­mas Thurs­day 10 May!
