The Wrong Missy (2020)



Critic Consensus: Lauren Lapkus lifts The Wrong Missy above abject failure, but this lazy comedy will be the wrong option for all but the most Happy Madison-starved viewers.

Critic Reviews for The Wrong Missy

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (13)

With her idiosyncratic and energetic performance, Lauren Lapkus deserves more nuanced writing and direction than she gets in this cleverly conceived but scattershot romantic comedy.

July 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Lapkus embarrasses herself with confidence. Her full-throttle verve transcends the script like a water skier leaping over a Great White.

May 21, 2020 | Rating: D | Full Review…

One can't shake the impression that Spade has been handed his unwanted leftovers.

May 18, 2020 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

It's far from even "50 First Dates," another island-set Sandler-land rom-com, but in a weird way, "The Wrong Missy" works.

May 18, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

I was vaguely amused here and there. This is every bit an Adam Sandler movie... If you're gonna watch this kind of movie, then you're gonna watch this kind of movie.

May 15, 2020 | Full Review…

"The Wrong Missy" is a lightweight throwaway, the kind of movie it is difficult to suggest one actually choose to watch, but if your algorithm somehow lands on it provides a certain harmless diversion.
