Melissa McCarthy appears to be getting in on some of that sweet Rodney Dangerfield action in back to school comedy Life of the Party.
Co-written by McCarthy and her hubby, Ben Falcone, he also directs her as she heads back to college after being dumped by her hubby. Erm, that’s the in-the-movie hubby, not Falcone.
Now that we have that cleared up, not only does McCarthy’s Deanna go to college, but it’s the very same one that her daughter is currently attending. She immerses herself in the experience, rechristening herself “Dee Rock” and getting involved in absolutely everything fratty.
Life of the Party also stars Jacki Weaver, Gillian Jacobs, Maya Rudolph, Julie Bowen, Matt Walsh, Molly Gordon and Stephen Root.
Life of the Party crashes Australian cinemas on May 10.
