'New Girl' fans must watch Netflix's 'Desperados', especially for Nasim Pedrad and Lamorne Morris's amazing chemistry
A new Netflix rom-com is about to have us all up in our feels because the nostalgia is going to be strong with this one. The platform is set to launch 'Desperados' a feature-length romedy starring Saturday Night Live's, Nasim Pedrad in the lead-role and viewers can expect an extra special treat. Pedtrad plays Wesley, who comes off as a desperate single lady who is pretty much ready to settle down, save for the fact that she doesn't exactly have a man in her life. After a botched blind date with a man that had the audacity to say 'the timing isn't right', an aggravated Wesley stumbles on her feet and ends up being rescued by a handsome man, Jared (Robbie Amell), that seems to be really taken by her. A romantic relationship ensues, however after not hearing from him, Wesley is convinced that she's been ghosted.
In a sad, pitiful, drunken stupor, she fires off an email-rant addressed to him, complete with offensive language and meaningless typos. Only later does she realize that her new boyfriend had been in an accident that had confined him to a hospital room in Cabo, Mexico, with no way to contact her. Panicking over what could be the ultimate demise of her short-lived relationship, Wesley, along with her two best friends Brooke (Anna Camp) and Kaylie (Sarah Burns) , the latter who is always guilty for encouraging bad decisions sets off to Cabo on a mission to delete the vitriolic email from Jared's device. When in Cabo, she comes face-to-face with Sean, the blind-date that flaked on her. He first accuses her of stalking him and then ends up getting sucked into all the drama.
But they say 'there is a fine line between love and hate', and the trailer for the movie seems to sum up the whole film within the two-minute-nineteen-seconds time frame. And if our deductions are correct, it would seem that the chemistry between Wesley and Sean is more explosive than the one between her and Jared. So will she and her aloof blind-date actually realize that they are meant for each other after this whole ordeal blows over? Only one way to find out. But here's something we can definitely let you in on: fans of the Fox sitcom 'New Girl' especially have something to look forward to as Wesley's infuriating blind-date is played by none other than Lamorne Morris, aka Winston.
Ardent 'New Girl' followers had the opportunity to fall in love with three couples throughout the course of the show and Aly Nelson and Winston Bishop were one among them. Morris' Winston was one among the central characters in the 'New Girl' sequence and went through a number of relationships throughout the seasons until Aly's (played by Pedrad) entrance in Season 4. She was the no-nonsense spouting LAPD cop that wormed her way into Winston's heart by pretty much playing hard to get. They went from friends to lovers, capturing the sentiments of every 'New Girl' fan that fawned over them, religiously. Their characters consequently went on to get married and even had a baby within the final season. And now, with the trailer for 'Desperados' hinting at there being some sort of sexual tension or a twisted sense of an attraction between the two, our thoughts are inclined towards them ending up together in the end, thereby fulfilling our 'New Girl' fantasies.
'Desperados' is directed by LP ('It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia') and based on the script written by Ellen Rapoport. Also starring 'The Flash' star Robbie Ammel, Anna Camp of 'Pitch Perfect' fame, Heather Grahams from 'Twin Peaks' and comedian Sarah Burns, the romantic-comedy premieres July 3 on Netflix.
