A financial products salesman (David Spade) texts a woman (Molly Sims) and invites her to join him on a corporate retreat in Hawaii. Unfortunately, the text goes to a different woman (Lauren Lapkus), with the same name, and instead of spending time with the woman of his dreams, he ends up with a nightmarish date. Also with Nick Swardson, Geoff Pierson, Sarah Chalke, Jackie Sandler and Chris Witaske. Directed by Tyler Spindel. [Running Time: 1:29]

The Wrong Missy SEX/NUDITY 7

 – A man and a woman are seen from the shoulders up (he is wearing an open shirt collar and her shoulders are bare) as the woman seems to sit astride him on a bed where he is lying and she is thrusting up and down while groaning; the woman’s face changes to that of another woman as she thrusts very fast, moaning loudly as the man yelps and the scene ends (climax is implied). A woman manually stimulates a man on an airplane under a blanket (we see hand movements) as he moans, and she wipes her hand off on a magazine at the edge of the blanket (we do not see secretions or flesh). Two women wearing opaque short nightgowns (we see their legs to the mid-thighs and cleavage) in a hotel room sit on a bed sipping champagne as a clothed man enters and lies with them; all three roll around and kiss each another until one woman falls off the bed with a thud and leaves; the remaining couple continues kissing as the scene ends (sex is implied). A woman in a massage room manually stimulates a man under a large sheet until he sits up and she backs away (we see his bare shoulders and arms); he lies back down and says, “Resume,” as the scene ends.
 A woman mentions masturbation as “upsey-downsey” and makes a hand motion to illustrate it. A man and woman in a broom closet kiss passionately and remove their jackets, stop and leave. A man puts his cell phone under his bed covers and apparently takes and sends a picture of his genitals (we do not see the image); a woman says she will text him a photo of hers (we do not see it) and when he sees something on his phone, he raises his eyebrows. A woman grabs a man’s buttock in a hotel lobby, and then smells her fingers and smiles. A woman eats a long cream-filled doughnut in front of a man and moans. A woman tells another woman and a man that they seem to have a strong sexual connection. A man kisses another man on the neck. A man and a woman kiss for a few seconds.
 An inebriated woman twerks against another woman and against the chest of a man who looks disgusted. A man rubs hair-growing foam inside his trousers and says he is growing lots of hair there (we do not see it).
 A shirtless man and two other men wearing mid-thigh length shorts stand and dance on a yacht. Several women on a beach wear bikinis that reveal backs, arms, cleavage, abdomens, the bottom of buttocks, and legs up to the hips. A shirtless man wears a mermaid tail (we see his bare chest and abdomen). A woman at a talent show wears a jersey dress that reveals cleavage, part of her abdomen and part of one thigh. A group of men and women wear stretchy one-piece bodysuits with hoods that cling to buttocks and breasts. A woman in a bubble bath reveals bare shoulders and knees. A woman’s dress lifts up as she falls off a cliff and we see her biker shorts and bare legs (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).

The Wrong Missy VIOLENCE/GORE 4

 – A shark bangs into a cage with two divers in it twice, forces itself through an opening in the bars, jumps through the top gate, a man punches it in the nose three times and the shark jumps into the water again and swims away.
 A man walks on his hands out to a balcony and falls off-screen; we see him lying and moaning on mulch with his ankle dislocated at an unnatural angle (he is fine later). A man falls out a washroom window to the street below, crying and groaning and we see his ankle dislocated at an unnatural angle; a woman pops the ankle back into place as the man screams for several seconds. A woman falls off a cliff, lands on a rock, tumbles further and lands on a tree, and then falls to the ground, but is not injured.
 A man lifts another man by the lapels, threatens to kill him, and then releases him. A woman yells across a room at a man and another man runs out of the frame. A man and a woman argue loudly several times. Two men argue in several scenes. A man shouts at and pushes his male assistant several times. A dancer falls on a stage and is unharmed. A woman pulls out a very long Bowie knife to show a man twice and the second time she sits in a taxi and draws it in front of and across her throat to imply that she will kill him. A woman says her father died and she was lonely.
 A man at a beach falls over a chaise lounge and a woman cracks his neck loudly to relieve stiffness. We see that a man is missing three fingers on one of his hand and the first time we see this, the remaining knuckles look fine, but several other times they look enlarged and scarred. A woman falls into a shallow swamp and comes up muddy but unharmed. A woman pretends to be a demonic character called Hellstar, who uses a croaking voice and uses her braid as a mustache. A woman snores loudly while sleeping in a CPAP mask. A woman pulls a man out of the water, does chest compressions, and he coughs up water and is OK.
 A man at a banquet table vomits loudly and we see brown and yellow material splatter onto his plate three times. A woman and a man struggle over a bucket of chum and it splashes the woman, chum falls and the woman vomits brown material into the ocean and into a shark cage that contains two men wearing wetsuits. A woman uses a long knife to chop dead fish into chum and we see some blood. A woman falls into the ocean, climbs onto a yacht and spits water. In a shadow play, a woman places lemons between a man’s buttocks and the lemons are thrown behind and across the screen; then a loud splash-sounding smear covers one part of the shadow screen and the audience shouts “Ewww” (feces is implied).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
