It's puzzling, because it would seem Mr. Falcone would know better than anyone what makes Melissa McCarthy amusing, and he keeps helming her un-funniest movies.

Her next film, Life of the Party, finds McCarthy as Deanna, a single mother who grows to regret the fact that she never finished her college degree as she prepares to send her only daughter off to school. Mom, Chassidy Jackson-Goodwin, put her education on hold to take care of her daughter, Jaida Jackson, and now they're both able to finish school - just like in Life of the Party. The upcoming film is the latest McCarthy joint to be co-written and directed by her husband Ben Falcone. However, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that Life of the Party looks a little more reserved, even if it doesn't all that clearly explain what's happening in the opening moments. "Twenty?. I'm twenty one".

Melania Trump: Jet-setter on the taxpayer dime
While the president was in Switzerland, Melania made a last-minute trip to the Holocaust Memorial Museum as well as visiting Mar-a-Lago.


Deanna's return to college presents McCarthy with plenty of opportunities to embarrass her daughter, but as the trailer demonstrates, that's not really the goal of the movie - at least not the entire film. 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. It co-stars Debby Ryan, Gillian Jacobs, Julie Bowen, Maya Rudolph and Jacki Weaver.

Life of the Party is set for release on May 11.
