Netflix's newest comedy The Wrong Missy follows a guy, Tim Morris (David Spade), who finds his dream girl and begins a relationship through text. When he invites her out to his company's corporate getaway to Hawaii, he learns that the woman he's been messaging is actually a previous blind date ... that did not go so well. Yikes!

Hilarity ensues between the two during the retreat, such as Missy falling down drunk, a crazy shark tank adventure, cliff jumping, and more. So, maybe this wild girl is exactly what Tim needs...

The Netflix film was produced by Happy Gilmore Productions, which means fans of Adam Sandler will recognize many of his cronies in the new rom-com. One person that audiences may be less familiar with is Jared Sandler, who plays an assistant named Stuart in the new feature film.

Jared dishes on his "Missy" story aka his bad dating experience.

In honor of the film, the budding comedian revealed his bad date experience aka his "Missy" story. "I once brought a woman to Denny’s for dinner because I was such a frequent customer that I was friends with the entire staff (they made me feel good). As my date was uncomfortably eating her egg salad sandwich, our waitress, Mimi (who actually looked like my belated grandmother) brought me a complementary root beer float. I downed it in one gulp," he wrote on Instagram

Adding, "Then my date looked me in the eye and said this is not what she wanted. And I replied 'It’s okay, Mimi and I made out once but it wasn’t a big deal' and that’s when I realized I was Missy."
