Ever think of going back to school? It’s exactly what Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) does in the upcoming movie, Life of the Party when her husband unexpectedly leaves her.
This Mother’s Day weekend, Melissa McCarthy is the Life of the Party. In theaters May 11!
Written by Melissa McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, who is the director of the film. The duo McCarthy and Falcone wrote the script for 2014’s “Tammy” and 2016’s “The Boss.”
Life of the Party is produced through McCarthy and Falcone’s production company, On the Day.
Chris Henchy also produced the film, with Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Michael Disco and David Siegel serving as executive producers.
Falcone’s behind-the-scenes creative team included:
- Director of photography Julio Macat (“The Boss,” “Horrible Bosses 2,” “Daddy’s Home”)
- Production designer Rusty Smith (“The Boss”)
- Editor Brian Olds (“Central Intelligence”)
- Costume designer Louise Mingenbach (the “The Hangover” films).
- The music is by Fil Eisler (“How to Be Single,” “Empire”)
I am so excited to see this movie. We have a college graduate and another who is almost finished with his college degree. It has been so much fun talking to my children about their sorority and the programs that seem to be molding them into dynamic people.
My own college experience was a few credits. I have often thought about going back to college, but raising my family has been my priority. I want to see this movie, and perhaps live vicariously through the main character.
Life of the Party Synopsis:
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, 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.
