Life of the Party

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - LIFE -

Plot: A di­vorced mom (Melissa McCarthy) goes back to school to earn her ar­chae­ol­ogy de­gree and ends up par­ty­ing hard. Di­rec­tor: Ben Fal­cone 1 hour, 45 min­utes Rat­ing: PG-13 Upside: McCarthy’s talent works well with younger cast mem­bers for some of the film’s strong­est scenes.

Down­side: It’s a hope­lessly de­riv­a­tive col­lege com­edy that pulls its best stuff from much bet­ter films.
