The Wrong Missy on Netflix is rated TV-MA. But not all TV-MA shows are created equally. The Wrong Missy is not kid friendly or appropriate for teens. Here’s what parents need to know about The Wrong Missy on Netflix.
The Wrong Missy Parents Guide
I talked to a couple of friends who had seen The Wrong Missy and asked if they thought I’d like it. Immediately they both said, “NO!” They know I don’t like raunchy shows. I asked is The Wrong Missy ok for kids or teens? Immediately another, “NO!”
And these are friends who aren’t generally phased by mature content. I decided to watch a little bit, but I was done. It was too much for me to handle, and frankly, it was boring. The Wrong Missy is rated TV-MA for language, raunchy humor, and mature content.
I miss the good ‘ol days of David Spade and Adam Sandler movies like Tommy Boy and Happy Gilmore. Slapstick comedy, but with some wit, not necessarily lending itself to cheap jokes throughout the entire movie. The Wrong Missy is just full of junk.
When Tim Morris meets his dream girl and their relationship escalates through texts, he decides to invite her to his company’s corporate retreat in Hawaii. However, when a horrible past blind date shows up at the airport for the weekend getaway instead, he learns too late that he’s been texting “The Wrong Missy.” Get it? Classic mistake.
Know a bad word? It’s in here. Not just the four-letter words either, but crass words. And the f-word makes the rounds plentifully in every sense of the word. There’s a lot of sexual humor including an entire song about pu**y, and not the cat.
There is a lot of drinking, drug use, and sexual activity including a threesome in a bedroom scene while one girl accidentally gets punched several times. Also an overly aggressive girl starts forcing herself on a man which my friend Tessa described as almost rape.
Is The Wrong Missy Appropriate for Teens?
I wouldn’t recommend The Wrong Missy for kids under 18. I wouldn’t even recommend it for adults, but if these kind of romcoms are your thing, then you might enjoy it. If you’re a fan of Happy Madison Productions, then you probably know what you’re getting into.
You’ll still get guest appearances from Happy Madison friends Rob Schneider and Nick Swardson, but where’s Adam Sandler?
The Wrong Missy in particular is very heavy with content that may not be safe for teens.
Is there some heartwarming message at the end of all this? Sure. Was it a painful road to get there? Also yes.
