Hollywood is still living in the wake of Avengers: Infinity War, so we don't have any major blockbusters on tap this week. What we do have, however, is two very different movies about moms: one heading back to college, and one trying to protect her family from a crew of home invaders. Get ready for Breaking In and Life of the Party.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Rotten Watch Prediction
31%

Imagine if your mom and dad got divorced and then your mom decided to drop everything and enroll in college with you. I know, I know. It's horrifically easy to picture - and that's what makes Life of The Part__y ultra-realistic. Melissa McCarthy goes to get some higher learning, this time with her daughter, and they navigate the world of sex, partying and (probably) academics along the way. It looks ridiculous and not in the "super funny and out there" kind of way, but in the "very stupid" vein. I suspect there are some redeeming elements, but way too many silly joke-seeking moments to make the film redeemable.

This is the third director-writer team up of Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy, who also happen to be husband and wife in addition to producing partners. The first two didn't go all that well, as both scored less than 25 percent on the Tomatometer (Tammy - 24%; The Boss - 22%). I doubt this latest does much better.
