Melissa McCarthy Debuts Hilarious 'Life of the Party' Trailer on 'Ellen' - Watch Here!

Melissa McCarthy makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (February 5), and debuts an exclusive trailer from her new film, Life of the Party!

In her upcoming film Life of the Party, the 47-year-old actress plays a middle-aged mom named Deanna who decides to go back to college to finally get her degree. Deanna lands in the same class and school as her daughter (Molly Gordon), who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna-now going by Dee Rock-embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

Life of the Party reunites Melissa with her writing partner and husband, Ben Falcone, as director, and it also stars Gillian Jacobs, Maya Rudolph and Julie Bowen.

Plus, in honor of Melissa‘s mother-daughter college-themed movie, she and Ellen surprise audience members Chassidy Jackson-Goodwin and her daughter Jaida Jackson from Lincoln, Nebraska to play a “Life of the Party” version of beer pong.

Life of the Party hits theaters this spring – Watch the trailer below!
