The modern academic landscape of safe spaces and microaggression measurement might have given the old premise a good jolt, but Falcone and McCarthy take the easier route of throwing her character into the epic partying of the Greek system.

Life of the Party comes with a good concept, but a weak script and cheap gags drag it down. Might have been better after a few more drafts.

Hate to be the party pooper, but this one fell flat.
July 18, 2019
Much of Life of the Party is trite, derivative and/or simply stupid. Yet it's nice to see McCarthy and Falcone giving this that old college try -- and almost pulling it off with honors.

Structurally and dramatically the film is like its protagonist - it does not hold up well under scrutiny but gets by on its own, loopy inoffensiveness.

Life of the Party might have a few laughs here and there but it is ultimately quite boring and has very little to offer the comedy genre.

This must be what it's like to watch movies in hell.

[McCarthy's] mishaps and triumphs are breezy enough; yet, for the most part, the laughs don't come.

It takes until the film's second half for this party to find any life, but the latest Mellissa McCarthy/Ben Falcone collaboration still feels devoid of any larger sense of purpose.

The plot of Life of the Party often feels like filler that only exists to link the comedic scenes together and consequently everything else about it suffers.

The script, however ... does them few favors; Life of the Party never finds conflict or drive.

Let's be honest, no one in fifty years is going to call Life of the Party a career highpoint. It'll be any wonder people will remember it at all.

This feels more like a serious of outlandish vignettes from a TV sitcom as opposed to a fully-fledged theatrical feature.

It's one thing to make a cringe-worthy comedy, but it's not funny at all. I feel bad, because Melissa McCarthy doesn't have to do that...

Dear Ben Falcone & Melissa McCarthy, You both have a great work ethic and managed to do amazing things separately but, whenever you come together to make a movie, it is an excruciating pain.

"Life of the Party" has neither life, nor is it a party. Discuss.
July 30, 2018
Despite the talent of its protagonist, Life of the Party never knows what to do with the presence of McCarthy in a story devoid of an attractive conflict for the audience. [Full Review in Spanish]

Indicates McCarthy is willing to sacrifice her career so her husband can make bad movies.

The latest collaboration between Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone...

It's a generic comedy that you've seen a million times...it's just not a good movie, and there are some things that work as far as comedy goes, but it's a rental as best.
