AFTERLIFE OF THE PARTY is the kind of film that many of us watch when nothing else is better on television. It is predictable, silly, awkward, and yet, comforting. 

The plotline is simple. Cassie (Victoria Justice) is about to turn 25. She is a self-absorbed, crazy, high-energy, and high-maintenance, immature young woman. She wants to party like there is no tomorrow, and sadly, it isn’t due to a freak accident. When she opens her eyes, her guardian angel (Robyn Scott) tells her that she has 5 days to right the wrongs she created in her life. It is literally her second chance to get to heaven or hell. The clock starts ticking, and her journey of redemption begins.  

We all know where this will end, but it is all about how Cassie finally becomes who she was meant to be while on earth. It is a zany, roller coaster ride filled with one-line zingers and colorful fashion choices. 

AFTERLIFE OF THE PARTY is not a rush to watch movie. It will still be there whenever you choose. Perhaps on a rainy or snowbound day when your plans have been canceled. After all, heaven can always wait.  It is available to stream on Netflix.
