3 hellstars out of 10
You: Freya, why on earth did you watch this?
Me: Honestly, I was scrolling through Facebook videos one day and a scene from this movie popped up. I watched a bit but it was so dumb I scrolled on. BUT for the next few days I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So, I decided the best way to get it out of my head was to watch the whole thing.
Essentially, what happens is fresh faced, brunette David Spade goes on a date with a chick that Crocodile Dundee’s him in the bathroom called Missy, then hooks up with a girl way out of his league at an airport called Melissa. He invites hot Melissa to some work event weekend (which is a bit wild for technically the first date) and wouldn’t you know it, he texted the wrong girl and bug-eyed Missy turns up.
It was better than I expected. Having said that though, my expectations were super low. Although there was a slight hope for a bit of Murder Mystery magic from Happy Madison Productions again. I think I laughed once or twice. Maybe if you’re a fan of the Happy Madison movies than you’ll really enjoy this one! It was definitely better than Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
I do love the fact that they’ve put David Spade on the comedic back burner so Lauren Lapkus, who plays Missy, can “shine”. She well and truly gives it 110%. It would have been a pretty fun character to play for a comedic actress… minus having to have sex with David Spade.
But I also don’t really recommend you watch it so maybe just keep reading.
I was also so happy to watch the scene where David Spade realises he’s in love with Missy and has to tell hot Melissa and she responds with something like “yeah mate that’s cool, we’ve met once and kissed in a janitors closet. I think I’ll survive without you.” Finally, women are being represented better!
