Movie Review – Life of the Party

This little movie is pretty darn cute. It’s got a happy spirit to it, and Melissa McCarthy did a bang up job. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but this was highly amusing, and had a sweet bit of heart. The sorority girls are especially charming, and Deanna’s adult best friend steals the show several times. Some scenes are outragously funny (there’s a wild scene with pot-based humor, so heads up).

The theme of going back to college is positive; a good message for those of us who miss school and the “good old days.” There’s a lovely sense of nostalgia throughout, and a great 80s party in the mix. For those of us who lived through the 1980s, the scene is a real hoot.

If you’re sad about going through a current divorce, this might be too painful for you right now. If you are starting to get over it, you’ll enjoy Life of the Party a lot more.

It’s a fluffy film, but worth seeing if you need a little laughter. I’d probably wait for the DVD though, and save your movie dollars for this summer’s blockbusters.
