Netflix’s The Wrong Missy has been an enormous hit on the streaming platform this week, proving people in lockdown are desperate for a comedy fix and some escapism. What better way to achieve this than in the form of a bizarre David Spade film made by King of Comedy Adam Sandler’s production company? Well it made it into the top 10 so something worked. But it turns out the lead actor faced some “tricky” moments when filming that home-cinema viewers won’t be privy to.
Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison productions has helmed the movie, and stars the former’s friend in David Spade.
The comic genius takes a back-seat to his co-star Lauren Lapkus, who truly steals the scene in the hilarious plot-gone-wrong caper.
And as a result, he really struggled to find his footing with his character, a serious and cantankerous human who ends up botching a planned trip by inviting the wrong girl. Cue some crazy theatrics.
Speaking in a Jo Blo interview alongside his co-star Nick Swardson, he explained how the job was more difficult than his usual roles.

“Have you seen his Instagram?” Swardson chimed in. “Good Lord.
