Highly Suspect Reviews: Life of the Party

“Hey, come on, Spy was funny”. This was the refrain oft-heard before the screening of Melissa McCarthy and her director/writer husband Ben Falcone’s latest film, Life of the Party. The desperate refrain of critics trying to shed themselves of expectations. But oh, how those instinctual expectations were justified. McCarthy plays a housewife and mom who when her husband unexpectedly dumps her, decides to go back to college and finish out her degree. The same college her daughter is finishing her senior year in. But this ain’t no Back to School. No indeedy. Listen to Chris, Marco, Michael’s brave tale of survival.
