Life of the Party brings surprise laughs, but struggles where it matters most

Life of the Party is another comedy from the husband and wife duo of director/writer Ben Falcone and actor Melissa McCarthy. In this film, McCarthy also helps out with the script and, surprisingly, delivers a movie far better than I anticipated.

I attended an advanced screening of this film for purposes of this review, thanks to Allied Integrated Marketing and Warner Bros. ❤

Life of the Party is rated PG-13, runs 1 hour and 45 minutes and hits theaters May 11, 2018.
