‘The Wrong Missy’ Trailer: David Spade’s Netflix Comedy Might Be A Relic From The Late ’90s

David Spade. Nick Swardson. Rob Schneider. Molly Simms. Netflix’s upcoming comedy The Wrong Missy might’ve been taken straight out of the late ’90s. Are we sure that it wasn’t found in Adam Sandler’s attic? Because I find it hard to believe that somebody in the year 2020 put this archaic-looking movie together and said it was okay to greenlight.

As you can tell, I’m not a fan of this trailer for The Wrong Missy, nor the people in it. The only exception is Spade’s co-star, Lauren Lapkus, who seems to have fallen into a bad habit of starring in really shitty comedies, like when she was the best thing about Holmes & Watson.

Anyway, Spade plays a guy with a pretty terrible job/life, who somehow meets the woman of his dreams, Missy, while stuck at an airport. Later, he invites her through text to join him on a corporate retreate to Hawaii, only he somehow manages to text THE WRONG MISSY, who ends up being a former ex and too much crazy for him to handle.


Along with the folks I already mentioned, the cast includes Geoff Pierson, Jackie Sandler, Sarah Chalke, Chris Witaske, is directed by Tyler Spindel. Spindel previously worked with Spade on another Netflix “comedy”, Father of the Year.

The Wrong Missy hits Netflix on May 13th.

SYNOPSIS: When Tim Morris meets his dream girl and their relationship quickly escalates through texts, he throws caution to the wind and invites her to his company’s corporate retreat on an island resort… However, when a past blind date from hell shows up at the airport for the weekend getaway instead, he learns too late that he’s been texting “The Wrong Missy”.
