Recently James Kleinmann sat down with the stars of the new movie Life of the Party, the latest comedy starring Ghostbusters’ own Melissa McCarthy in which a recently divorced, middle-aged mother returns to college to complete her degree.
Alongside Melissa McCarthy are Community’s Gillian Jacobs, Debby Ryan, Maya Rudolph, Adria Arjona, Julie Bowen, Stephen Root, Christina Aguilera as herself, Sarah Baker, Molly Gordon, Chris Parnell, Jacki Weaver, Jessie Ennis and Luke Benward.
Plot: When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna 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.
Life of the Party is out on the 10th of May in the UK and the 11th in the US.
