When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) turns regret into re-set by going back to college…landing in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea. 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.



  • Unwatchable

    Literally: I stopped watching it half way through- I could not bear to watch anymore. I paid for it knowing it had a terrible Rotten Tomato score but I love Melissa McCarthy so thought there had to be some funny moments with just her. Even she could not bring any funny to this complete garbage. Maya Rudolph managed not to be funny - even them together... Nope. Nothing was well done. Awful movie
  • A perfect girls night movie

    I watched this with my mom and grandma and it was the best decision ever. I love Melissa McCarthy and she was SO GOOD playing the role of a back-to-school mom. By the end of the movie my mom, grandma, and I had stomach cramps from all of the laughing that we did.
  • Go Melissa

    My husband and I weren’t sure what to expect, but this movie was pretty good.
  • It’s half and half

    I feel she’s off course it’s like its funny one minute and then nothing for awhile then small slapstick humor it’s not a bad movies just meh.
  • I tried to like this -

    Love Melissa in most everything she does but I couldn’t make halfway through this film, I didn’t find it funny at all. And what’s with the extremely annoying narration throughout the movie? Was that Reese Witherspoon, BTW? Sad to say, I was glad I only spent .54 at Redbox (with discount code). Hopefully, her next project will be better.

    yeah not a great film, tbh pretty SHIIIJJT whatevs tho fun to watch safely with friends and have a mediocre time
  • Movie makes time slow down

    By Ffgstsrgv
    I love Melissa McCarthy but let's be honest she only makes good comedy when she plays an angry character. This movie had me staring at the clock waiting for the hour and 20 minutes to finally pass. Sure the idea is good but the execution is extremely poor. Every scene is an (insert joke here) and it is beyond predictable
  • Was “okay”

    By ATVRA
    Humor was pretty lackluster. I had maybe 3 chuckles during the entire movie. Felt very directed to maybe late 30’s/early 40’s audience with subject matter and type of comedy. I felt the trailer painted this as something it wasn’t, and I’d say it was more or less akin to something like Magic Mike where you thought it was one thing and then it took itself a lot more seriously.
  • The worst Melissa McCarthy movie!

    By Akshie79
    Was so disappointed. Terrible acting and terrible direction. Very weak script too.
