When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna turns regret into reset 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.

I love Melissa but this movie is a dud. None of what happens makes any sense and it's not very funny.

Melissa McCarthy tries her best to lift a tired story about a wife and mother who goes back to finish her college degree after her husband dumps her for someone else. It must be a small world because mom ends up at the same university as her daughter, making them both seniors. '80s pop culture references are glittered throughout the film, but the jokes don't land and McCarthy (a fine comedic actress) can't carry the stale film by herself. McCarthy at her best is 'Bridesmaids'; her worst is 'Tammy', and this film falls dangerously close into 'Tammy' territory.

I watched this on a flight from England back to Vancouver, and aside from a scene where McCarthy and her friend (played by Maya Rudolph) get drunk together in the most unlikely of places as well as a few other funny scenes in the movie with the two together the movie is dull. I love Melissa McCarthy, but this was a waste of time (even for a 9 hour flight back home.)

Average light hearted comedy movie. A few scenes we found mildly amusing but was expecting much more.

One of the worst movies ever made. Total vanity project - her husband directed it, she and her husband wrote it and I think they produced it. Humorless and ridiculous. After watching the Oscar worthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me it seems that she and spouse should leave writing and directing to others.

Not a great movie. An Attempt at making a McCarthy chick flick.

Intention was to make a comedy. Wishful thinking. Stop giving giving Melissa Mccarthy crap comedy projects. She's talented but her people are failing in her project choices.

Skip the cheap knockoff and watch a far superior "Back to School" (Rodney Dangerfield).

A silly laugh out loud movie. Typical Melissa McCarthy!
