I knew this was going to be nonsense and have life lessons bashed into me, but I didn't care. That's why I signed in and bought my ticket, the sheer silliness factor. Melissa is hilarious and sometimes cringey but sometimes thats what you need in a film when you've had a less than stellar day. If you are looking for something to just wash over you, not change your life but just entertain and take you away for a bit then this is for you.

I just saw it today it was hilarious & made me laugh so hard. I love Melissa McCarthy & I love her in every comedy film she is in she makes me laugh every time. I would definitely see it again & definitely worth seeing.

    It's a diverting vehicle for a solid comedy star, and if you feel like it might be for you, you probably won't be disappointed. Full Review

  • "Life of the Party" indulges our collective hope that mistakes can be mended, we're never too old for redemption and, given the chance, we could still slay in a frat house dance-off if the DJ played the right song. Full Review

  • It is curious to see a comedy so timid, so reluctant to risk hurt feelings or complicated situations. Full Review

  • If the sparkling arc from sad acoustic guitars to Christina Aguilera anthems has any serious intention, McCarthy and Falcone want to salute the wonders women can accomplish when they band together. Full Review

  • Do laundry. Clean the fish tank. Re-grout the bathroom. What do these things have in common? They are much better ways to spend your time than sitting through Melissa McCarthy's uninspired and forced Life of the Party. Full Review

  • Amongst the lectern-based humour, repeated shots to the crotch and strange sexualisation of the Harry Potter books, it all feels like a project that even Adam Sandler might have thought twice about. Full Review
