THE WRONG MISSY (2020): The Thing I Liked…

The Wrong Missy, a comedy about a man who invites the wrong girl to his company’s corporate retreat, all while trying to invite the woman of his dreams is a movie that fell short of my hopes and expectations. 

Starring David Spade, Lauren Lapkus, and directed by Tyler Spindel; on account of the dialogue, performances and editing, within the first ten minutes, I realised that The Wrong Missy wasn’t going to be great. Some of the early writing and directing choices just didn’t result in scenes that filled me with confidence about the quality of what was yet to come.

What’s most disappointing is that I liked the film’s premise, and had been hoping for a better executed movie. Maybe a comedy as undeniably funny, pleasantly surprising, hard to forget and featuring well-drawn characters like in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008). What I got instead is a film with roughly two funny moments I enjoyed, while the rest of it seemed as though it needed at least a second draft.

Lapkus’s Missy was supposed to be the source of the bulk of the humour. Unfortunately, I personally found her performance and character’s choices to be too over-the-top and often too obnoxious to be amusing. As for Spade’s performance, he could have done with a little of Lapkus’s energy.

Where the aforementioned funny moments are concerned, there are two I won’t be forgetting any time soon, The first involves a series of unexpected slaps. The other was already shared in the trailer. Specifically, the perfectly delivered line: ‘She’s alive…’ Damn it!’

I say watch The Wrong Missy if you’re especially curious. Otherwise, maybe re-visit Forgetting Sarah Marshall instead.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Wrong Missy (2020).


The Wrong Missy is a new comedy about Tim (David Spade) who meets the woman of his dreams, invites her to his company’s corporate retreat – only to find that he’s invited the wrong girl with the same name.

Directed by  Tyler Spindel; Lauren Lapkus, Sarah Chalke, Nick Swardson, Molly Sims and Vanilla Ice are among the key cast.

This trailer has put me in a great mood. Didn’t expect that. Looks like the casting of Lapkus was a great idea. Also loved the comic time of ‘She’s alive…’ Damn it!’

Cant wait to see this in a few weeks.

Geoff Pierson, John Farley, Lori Pelenise Tuisano, Chris Witaske, Candace Smith, Sarah Halford, Chris Titone, Andrea Elizabeth Sikkink and Kaylee Kristin also star.

In Warning Shot, Tammy Blanchard is a single mother struggling to make ends meet. That is until she inherits her family’s farmhouse. Unfortunately for her, a business rival covets the water rights and so begins the nightmare…

I want to see Blanchard’s character fight and win. I’m also excited to watch funny man David Spade play a powerful and very bad man.
