Netflix has been in the Adam Sandler business for years now, and business steadily has boomed. We may never know the full statistics for the viewing habits of Sandler’s faithful, but Netflix has claimed that films like Murder Mystery, The Do-Over and The Week Of have found their audiences. Sandler’s brand is so strong, Netflix now takes gambles on Adam’s boys, as when David Spade gets to carry The Wrong Missy on the streaming platform.
The movie has been a modest hit for Netflix (trending in certain places and generating buzz for a previously unheard of comedy). In the film, Spade plays a guy who invites his dream girl, Missy, on a corporate retreat. Only, he mistakenly texts the wrong Missy, and ends up in paradise with the crazy Lauren Lapkus. In a recent interview with ComingSoon, The Wrong Missy co-star Nick Swardson (another Sandler barnacle) opened up about a completely improvised scene, and how he helped build it. Commenting on his “drunk” scene, Swardson explained:
Usually, that’s funnier, too. In The Wrong Missy, David Spade and Nick Swardson are corporate guys on a retreat, and yes, that usually IS when buttoned-up suits let their hair down and get a little wild. In the same interview, Swardson went on to say that they improvised because their producer, Adam Sandler, wasn’t present, but also because they know the type of humor that he wants to see in his types of comedies.
From that perspective, Nick Swardson’s right. He has been studying in the school of Adam Sandler for years, appearing in Sandy Wexler, The Ridiculous 6, the Grown Up films, and more. David Spade clearly trusts him, and it’s fun to learn the behind-the-scenes stories on these comedies.
The Wrong Missy is available to stream right now. To keep up with all of the films and TV shows coming to Netflix (and leaving), bookmark this Streaming Page on CinemaBlend and check it often.
