Must-watch movies on Netflix: Desperados

Release Year: 2020

Directed By: LP

Nasim Pedrad stars in the Netflix original comedy Desperados as Wesley, a real hot mess of person personally and professionally. Despite her life consistently being in flux, Wesley desperately desires to find the one, get married and start a family. When Wesley believes she’s found the perfect guy in Jared (Robbie Amell), a ruthless drunk email could ruin the entire relationship. Wesley erupts when Jared fails to call her after having sex, but he had gotten into an accident in Mexico and never read the message. Suddenly, Wesley and her best friends are on a mission to Mexico to delete the email.

For all intents and purposes, we have seen Desperados before, which makes its negative reception from critics all the more understandable. The film doesn’t necessarily add anything to the formula of a directionless person ruining their relationship amid raunchy jokes and a happy ending. But there’s something special about Nasim Pedrad. She can make you laugh with even the weakest of material, and she’s simply the best part of Desperados as the charming lead. If nothing else, the weird and wild Desperados is a must-watch for the hilariously fearless performance of Pedrad.
