When she's dumped by her husband, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) decides to upgrade her skills and enrolls in college, but winds up in the same class as her daughter, who’s less than pleased by this latest turn of events.

Nevertheless, Deanna, who has renamed herself Dee Rock, embraces the campus experience, which includes freedom, fun and even frat boys as she finds her true self along the way.

  • 1 star "I like Melissa McCarthy, she is a comic genius. She could not save this movie. I had to leave after half an hour. I was waiting for the plot to get interesting and it never did. The characters were weak and didn’t portray true college life. Who would have sex with an over weight middle aged Mom? What respectable Mom would have sex so soon after a divorce within ear shot of her own daughter? Hollywood is sinking lower and lower on the morality scale."
  • 4 stars "Really really really bad but also very funny. So bad that I have a hard time actually remembering what was funny about it, aside from the ridiculous oral-presentation, which is amazing and completely over the top. Very very bad / very good."
  • 5 stars "Melissa McCarthy is phenomenal as always!"
