Life of the Party Synopsis

New Line Cinema's comedy "Life of the Party" stars Melissa McCarthy under the direction of Ben Falcone.

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (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.

Alongside McCarthy, the film also stars Gillian Jacobs ("Don't Think Twice," Netflix's "Love," TV's "Community"), Maya Rudolph ("Bridesmaids," "Sisters"), Julie Bowen (ABC's "Modern Family"), Matt Walsh (HBO's "Veep," "Ghostbusters"), Molly Gordon ("Love the Coopers," TNT's "Animal Kingdom"), with Stephen Root ("Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates"), and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver ("Silver Linings Playbook," "Animal Kingdom"), Jessie Ennis (AMC's "Better Call Saul"), Adria Arjona (HBO's "True Detective," NBC's upcoming "Emerald City"), Debby Ryan (Disney Channel's "Jessie") and Jimmy O. Yang (HBO's "Silicon Valley").

McCarthy and Falcone co-wrote the screenplay and produce through their production company, On the Day Production. Chris Henchy is also producing the film, with David Siegel serving as executive producer. Falcone's behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Julio Macat ("The Boss," "Horrible Bosses 2," "Daddy's Home"); production designer Rusty Smith ("The Boss"); editor Brian Olds ("Central Intelligence"); and costume designer Louise Mingenbach (the "The Hangover" franchises) with music by Fil Eisler "How to Be Single," TV's "Empire"), A New Line Cinema production, "Life of the Party" will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros.
