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.

  • 3 stars "Kind of funny but not as good as most of her comedies. All the good parts are in the trailer, so no surprises left for theatre goers. I stilled enjoyed her but didn't need to see it in a theatre. Many in the audience weren't laughing at some of the 'bits' so that took away from having that theatre experience when everybody is laughing."
  • 5 stars "It was fun and silly and sad. A total combination of Melissa’s talent that you will love. Super comedy."
  • 2 stars "Very disappointing. Usually love anything with Melissa in it."
