Storyline

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna turns regret into re-set 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. Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

10 May 2018 | by hebona1399See all my reviews

So Hollywood has really run out of ideas. This is such a worn out storyline. Melissa McCarthy looked to be a break out player, but then does this crap. Now she looks to be the next Rob Schneider, which is not a good thing. Instead of paying to see this movie you'd have more fun dropping your cash in the toilet and flushing it.
