Melissa McCarthy’s New Dogs Are Pretty, But Not That Smart

Melissa McCarthy’s New Dogs Are Pretty, But Not That Smart

There are new additions
to your family, and I want to hear their names. There are. Aw! We got two golden
retriever horses. [LAUGHTER] They are– they’re three to
four times this size now. And they’re pretty. They’re not very bright. No. [LAUGHTER] They’re really not. I love them dearly, but it’s
like living with models. They’re super pretty– [LAUGHTER] –but they’re not–
they’re not that smart. And you know what,
they don’t have to be, because everybody
just gives them things because they’re pretty. Yeah. [LAUGHTER] So it’s like they’ll never
come out of that cycle. They just– they literally
will go up into the yard and, like, catch a breeze. And I will look out,
and I’m like, my god, it’s like they found
a wind machine. And like, their hair is blowing. I’m like, they know
where to find, like, their light in the wind. [LAUGHTER] But then, they’ll, like, run
into walls, and I’m like, aw. Yeah, aw. [LAUGHTER] But they’re cute. Yeah. And do you– have you made the
mistake of throwing a ball yet? Because you should never
start that with those dogs. They also– yeah. And they make noises when they
get something in their mouth. They don’t do it when
they don’t have something, but the second you
give them a toy, they’re like
[MAKING DOG GRUNTING SOUNDS].. [LAUGHTER] And it’s panic. It’s like caught in
a bear trap sound. That’s hilarious. [LAUGHTER] And it’s like an
on and off switch. I mean, I have done
it, where I’m like [MAKING DOG GRUNTING SOUNDS]. [LAUGHTER] It’s the most frantic– What are their names? Sorry about that. The sound person must love that. Homer and Harper. And they don’t know. They don’t– they
don’t know their names? [LAUGHTER] They don’t know. They have no idea. You could call them, like,
Bubbles and, like, Havisham, and they just are like– [LAUGHTER] I’ve never met dogs that, like,
do not know their names at all. It’s kind of fascinating. That’s hilarious. All right, no one’s going to
be getting a golden retriever after this. [LAUGHTER] No, but they’re sweet. They’re so sweet. All right. But they’re pretty, yes. We’re back with Melissa
McCarthy in the new movie Life of the Party. It’s a great concept. It really– you and your
husband, Ben, wrote it, right? We did. We did. Directed it, starred in
it, catering, everything. Catering, dog
wrangling, everything. There was a dog in it. So tell everyone
what it’s about. It’s a great idea. It is. I– we’re taking our
daughter to college. It’s like the first
time she’s going away, which I can’t even imagine. And on the way out, we’re
kind of like, here we go– empty nest. We’re going to take
trips, we’re going to do all these
beautiful things. And then, my husband– you
know, like she– my character is very excited about
the possibilities, and my husband immediately
says, I want a divorce. Aw! I know. Right? And she is crushed
by it, because she’s devoted kind of
everything in, and her one regret– she doesn’t regret
being a mom or a wife, but she regretted
not finishing school. And when she kind
of pulls herself– my best friend in the movie
is Maya– oh, Molly, look. My best friend’s Maya Rudolph in
it and kind of helps me, like, pick myself up, who’s– Maya is a dream. And I go back to college. And I go back to college at
the same school as my daughter. [LAUGHTER] Which I keep telling
my kids, I’m like, won’t that be fun, when
we go to college together? But it’s really sweet
and hopeful, and I just– I always loved that concept
of, like, it is never too late to do anything. It’s never too late to change
and accomplish anything. And like I said, it’s a
great idea because, you know, it’s a horrible thing
that, all of a sudden, this man just decides I
want a divorce right when you’re– but you never– she
never would have gone back to school had that
horrible thing– Yeah. You have to look at, like,
all that life gives you. Yeah, I think she reevaluates. Like, what– was it that good? Was it that happy? Or can I be even happier,
and like accomplish something that I’m really proud of? So it’s a really– there’s a lot of joy in the
movie and it was fun to make. Yeah. And you’re working with
your husband again. And that’s always fun. He’s hilarious. That’s always fun. OK, so let’s take a
look at– and what was it like making out with the
handsome guy with your husband directing? Like, did he– Professionally speaking, Luke– Luke is amazing. We meet and kind of hit it off,
and end up in a relationship. We may end up– there’s some
making out in a library stack. And that scene was– we shot that scene on our
11th wedding anniversary for Ben and I. [LAUGHTER] On the day, which I
thought, thanks, Ben. So he was weirdly
yelling out things like, can you grab his butt
in the next take? And I was like,
Yes, professionally. [LAUGHTER] Professionally speaking, I can. And it was crazy and funny. And Luke just kept
going, happy anniversary. [LAUGHTER] That’s hilarious. [MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me getting scared or
saying embarrassing things, like ball peen hammer. And also, some videos of
Ellen and other celebrities, if you’re into
that sort of thing. Ah! Oh, [BLEEP]! God [BLEEP]!


  1. Melissa is such a nice human being! She's so heartwarmingly human and funny, I don't even know how to put it into words! I just love her words, also she's got such a sweet voice!

  2. That's my goldie too – so cute, so sweet, so loving – not all that bright but…wouldn't trade him for anything in the entire world! Everyone needs a golden!

  3. It makes me laugh when rich people trying and talk About “its never to late” “You can do anything” Forgetting Everything Costs Money and Not Everyone Can Afford Shit

  4. My retriever is so dumb she walked off a ledge before and fell flat on her face and when she as still laying on the ground she just kept walking

  5. Melissa, i love you but i'm gonna have to disagree with you on your dogs. My Niko, our golden retriever who passed away at 10yrs old was super smart. We called him the Houdini of golden retrievers because every time we tie him to a leash so he wouldn't jump at guests, he would always go free. No matter what kind of leash, the big strong ones or the choker ones, he would always go free no matter how good we tied him. His son, is even smarter because every time i'd go out to check on him, he would always pick up his dog food tray using his mouth and put on his puppy dog face to get more dog food.

  6. You know it’s funny because this plot is exactly what happened to my grandmother. She grew up in foster home after foster home, she never went to college because her high school counselor told her that she wasn’t “college material” and then when my mother was heading off to college, my grandmother found out that she was being cheated on and my grandfather left her. Heartbroken and without a job, she decided to go back to school despite being scared that she was twice the age of her classmates. She was embarrassed and had to go to college with my mother and uncle, but my grandmother graduated and I’ve never been more proud <3

  7. I love her as an actress, but as far as her concept for writing the script, her movie is based on that old movie with Rodney Dangerfield called "back to school". It's disappointing that there is no originality in movies anymore:(

  8. My dogs look exactly like that! The darker one is a girl and is named princess and the lighter one is a boy and is named buddy.

  9. Golden Retrievers are now being trained to aid people with MS. While they don't appear to be very smart, they have some traits that other dogs don't have. They are very gentle and caring animals, and perfect for those who are incapacitated or housebound. Maybe the "mayhem" that lies within Melissa's youngest daughter's mind, would be quieted by spending more time with her dogs.

  10. My Golden can open doors, turn on and off lights, but he is definitely a "model" and not in the good way. If you discipline him he'll give you the death stare, if he doesn't like his food he'll refuse to eat, and he definitely is always ready to catch a breeze. 🙂

  11. According to animal expert Stanley Coren Goldens are the number 4 most intelligent dogs in the ranking (Haha, just to let you know…)

  12. Such a mischaracterization of Golden retrievers, except for the "gorgeous" label – we trained ours as a service dog; he's super intelligent; he retrieves on command without any noises, he picks up dropped objects; he assists one's getting up or going up/down stairs; delivers mail or soda, if given to him; doesn't bark up a storm, prioritizes people connection and displays of hello/goodbye first over food or play – amazing. He definitely knows his name. Of course, you have to work with them from puppyhood. If a dog doesn't know its name, there's a big problem in the human-canine relationship – the human is either absent a lot or inattentive a lot or downright negligent on any semblance of training – I consider that abuse or abandonment. Goldies are not ornaments or statues for you to pass by as you live your life.

  13. Sometimes I think my dogs are just the smartest dogs in the world then I turn around and they're licking the window.

  14. Melissa is such a great mother in this movie. She's so perfect with her daughter. She says all the right things. An she doesnt embarrass her daughter.

  15. They are great family dogs. Hehehe. My baby Luke was a smarty. Lol. He was an awesome walking dog but wanted to make friends with the charging mean dogs. Lol. I had to lay on top of him while a dog ran viciously up to him. No kidding. Best baby ever though.

  16. Hahaha I have a golden, her name is Zoey, she is absolutely beautiful! but not too bright lol, she also makes what we call "wookie" sounds when she has her favorite toy

  17. My daughter is a model and she is wicked off the hook smart Melissa. That was a fucked up thing to say. And I freakin love you. Don’t do the stereo typing thing or I’ll be forced to turn that around on you.

  18. my golden was too smart. but he was a retriever so if u threw something, he would bring it back. he would stick his toys between the gate and the door so when anyone opened the door, all the toys fell inside the room, so the person would have to throw them back into his area/room and man he loved that lol. that's how smart he was.

  19. It's funny how Melissa said "Our 11th Anniversary" and Ben on the Jimmy Kimmel show said "Our 10th Anniversary"😂 I wonder who didn't remember!🤔😂😂

  20. Aren’t golden retrievers like one of the smartest dogs out of all dogs breeds it literally says that they are intelligent and trustworthy

  21. My Golden got her brain on her second birthday, she makes a noise when she has something in her mouth too but it's because she is showing it off. Best dogs in the world – I've had 5 so far.

  22. Melissa I adore you but my 2 Golden’s are the most intelligent dogs I’ve ever been around not just saying this cuz they are mine but it is the truth smarter than a lot of humans for sure!! Love my Sammy and Enzo

  23. My mom and I took class together. My dad and sister had a class together. Coolest thing to watch your parents graduate college.

  24. Most goldens are very smart. They are the fourth smartest breed and they are used for therapy, seeing eye, and search and rescue to name a few.

  25. All I can think now, that this movie she is talking about, sounds like a remake of "Helicopter Eela", a 2018 Bollywood movie. Starring Kajol.
    Anyone can attest?
