Melissa McCarthy has been stunning her fans after her 75-pound weight loss. But as McCarthy proves in her newest movie, this funny lady of film hasn't lost any of her comedic talents.
Life Of The Party once again brings together Melissa's acting talents with her husband Ben Falcone helming behind the camera, pointed out ET. McCarthy's character Deanna faces the wrath of her daughter, who is annoyed when Deanna responds to her divorce by heading back to college. That school just happens to be her daughter's university.
Although Deanna does her best to defend her decision to go to college, her explanation that she regrets not getting a degree doesn't stop the mean girl words about the middle-aged woman's figure. That hair (no, Melissa hasn't lost her style sense: It's a wig) also comes in for its share of mocking.
"I don't know what's sadder, the mom perm or the mom boobs."
The second Life Of The Party trailer was just released on April 18. Fans had mixed reactions to what one commentator described as "Melissa McCarthy playing Melissa McCarthy," but most admitted that although her new film is classic McCarthy the comedienne, it still brings chuckles.
"I can't lie. I laughed throughout the trailer," noted one critic.
