Wrong Missy stands out from the "Happy Madison" productions of the past 10 years. That's not saying much, but its a competent comedy flick. The film is propelled by Lauren Lapkus's amazing performance and David Spade's typical awkward and amusing aloofness.
The premise is thin, but the cast makes it work. Tim Morris (Spade) goes on an awful (and hysterical) blind date with Missy (Lapkus.) The date includes Missy picking a fight and brandishing weaponry to name a few of the hi-jinks. Tim opts to never see Missy again. A few days later he meets the "girl of his dreams", also named Missy. He inexplicably mixes them up in his phone and so we have a barely adequate story platform to deliver some great laughs.
The usual comedy character development is kept short and to the point. In that sense this film knows what it is and manages to keep the laughs throughout. This is in large part due to Lauren Lapkus's ability to spin comedy gold out of a facial expression, fully committed punch lines, or a strand of her own hair.
Some of the usual suspects make cameos, but few stand out except for Nick Swardson and Rob Schneider. Somehow playing a non-pc Human Resources executive is a perfect and hilarious fit for Swardson. Equally so for Rob Schneider as a lunatic boat captain. They're both in their element.
Its not a great movie by any means, but its a return to form for Sandler's production company. If you enjoyed the filthy slapstick humor of Joe Dirt, the Benchwarmers, and Grandma's Boy, the Wrong Missy will not disappoint.
