“The Wrong Missy!”
David Spade plays an uptight sales guy who goes on a disastrous, but really funny, first date.
Tim thinks he’s invited the woman of his dreams on a work retreat to Hawaii, realizing too late he mistakenly texted someone from a nightmare blind date. When she shows up on the plane, the hilariously profane fun begins!
Here is the trailer:
You see, Lauren Lapkus is “Missy” – this awful blind date – and she’s NOT the “Missy” he fadeout with in an airport storage closet…trust me, it makes sense!
Nick Swardson is hilarious as the “HR” guy who sees tapped into ALL of Spade’s devices – but it is Lauren’s incredibly raucous and raunchy performance that steals the show!
You see, this getaway is also Spade’s company retreat with the company’s “hardass” President – yes, it’s straight out of the “rom com playbook” – but it works because Lapkus is hilariously funny – and the scenes just get wilder and wilder!
Again, this is a raunchy, “R” rated romantic comedy, but it is REALLY FUNNY….you just have to sit back and let Lapkus take over!
Even Spade does a great job, because he wisely plays the straight man, setting her up for the wildly inappropriate things she does, with some funny, subtle one-liners throughout…it’s really funny!
Again, it’s a star-making, chew the scenery, hilariously “anything goes” performance by Lauren Lapkus!
Sometimes you admire a star who is willing to just “go there” – and be a character you laugh at – until you fall in love with them – like Romy and Michelle:
Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow give perfect performances the the ditzy, but ultimately heartwarmingly funny duo who have to go to their high school reunion:
The best news: Sorvino recently said they may do a sequel! Click here for a look at the original film:
Netflix has been on a role lately, with a number of cut romantic comedies like this one:
This is a really funny film, helped by a terrific performance by Keanu Reeves, play – Keanu Reeves!
Keanu had a blast playing a pompous version of himself, and the entire movie is a cut romantic comedy that is a great way to take your mind of of the pandemic…see the trailer here:
