Netflix has released the trailer for The Wrong Missy, an upcoming comedy starring David Spade.
This oh-so familiar-looking comedy has Spade playing Tim Morris, a guy who meets the girl of his dreams (Molly Sims) and begins to get the wheels in motion through texts. Deciding to take a chance, he invites her to an upcoming corporate retreat on an island resort. On the day they’re to fly off, she turns up… and it turns out he’s been texting the wrong girl! The horror! Now he’s stuck with this wild girl that he doesn’t like… at first. Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black, Crashing) plays the wrong Missy.
The trailer gives up a lot of what goes down in the plot, although it doesn’t really matter – it’s by no means the type of film that banks on the big narrative turns it has in store. While I’m not particularly keen to see it, there will most certainly be an audience for this done-and-dusted Adam Sandler-esque formula, which is course produced by Sandler through his Happy Madison Productions banner. The film is directed by Tyler Spindel, who previously directed Spade in the Netflix comedy Father of the Year.
The Wrong Missy, also starring Nick Swardson, Geoff Pierson, and Sarah Chalke, hits Netflix on May 13.
Official synopsis for The Wrong Missy:
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”.
