Netflix often gets a lot of obscure movies. Adam Sandler had a good number of original Netflix movies, so I’m not surprised to see David Spade get his own as well. But the important question is, was it any good?
David Spade stars in the movie as Tim Morris, a semi successful middle-aged businessman. He goes on a blind date with a girl named Melissa and she’s absolutely crazy. Like literally insane crazy.
Not long afterward, Tim meets another Melissa who is much different. She’s gorgeous, nice to talk to, and she’s perfectly and legally sane. She gives him his number but they don’t immediately date yet.
Tim decides to text Missy and invite her to a company resort in Hawaii. As he gets on the plane, he is horrified to learn he had crazy Missy accidentally invited instead. To Tim, this company resort might last forever.
Overall, The Wrong Missy is a decent yet flawed romantic comedy. David Spade doesn’t really give much comedic gold here. His character is just a generic nice guy. Lauren Lapkus does a pretty crazy yet pretty good job as Melissa though she does get a little cringey with it. While it wasn’t a well received comedy by critics, I enjoyed it more than I thought.
