Netflix’s The Wrong Missy has arrived at the perfect moment to bring a bit of laughter into our lives but that ending needs discussing.
There’s nothing we need more right now than a good comedy to put a smile on our faces.
And while the definition of good may be subjective, The Wrong Missy certainly tries, and for the most part succeeds, to bring us some much-needed laughter in the troubling times we’re currently living through.
The film is a typical Netflix rom-com with plenty of hilarious hijinks and cheesy clichés throughout the film.
The ending follows the same sort of pattern but just why did the film end in the way it did and what does it mean for The Wrong Missy’s characters?
The Wrong Missy on Netflix
The Wrong Missy released on Netlflix on May 13th, 2020.
The film tells the story of Tim Morris (David Spade), a remarkably unremarkable businessman whose Hawaii business trip is turned on its head when he invites the wrong Missy (Lauren Lapkus) to join him.
The Wrong Missy’s ending
When we first meet the wrong Missy, it’s clear that she is the polar opposite to the run-of-the-mill character of Tim and she certainly causes quite the ruckus on the Hawaii retreat.
However, as the film goes on, Tim’s mindset starts to change as he finds being with Missy a liberating experience.
By the end of the film, the pair even take part in a threesome which quickly becomes a twosome.
But disaster strikes after Missy discovers texts on Tim’s phone to the right Missy.
Realising the error of his ways, Tim tracks down Missy once they return to the US mainland and, despite a distraction from Vanilla Ice, manages to win her back round. Cue the credits.
What the ending means for Tim and Missy
The plot and ending of the film may be pretty predictable but the quirky comedy is just what we need right now.
What comes next for Tim and Missy is a bit of a mystery but we’d feel confident that the pair would not be up for settling down any time soon.
After returning to the US mainland, we see that Tim quits his job before seeking out Missy, clearly realising that he enjoyed the unpredictability of spending time with her in Hawaii.
Chances are, the pair wouldn’t waste any time in booking a trip somewhere as equally stunning and potentially deadly as Hawaii.
If there ever is a sequel to The Wrong Missy, we wouldn’t put it past the unlikely couple to visit Mount Everest, only for Missy to go tumbling down the tallest mountain in the world.
Either way, The Wrong Missy is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on May 13th, 2020.
