Jennifer Shines in Raunchy Comedy in No Hard Feelings Movie


Jennifer Lawrence produces and stars in No Hard Feelings, a coitus comedy in which she portrays Maddie, a young Uber driver who is facing bankruptcy. After discovering her Craigslist ad, she agrees to date a married couple’s son in exchange for Buick Regal.

Believe it or not, No Hard Feelings is based on a real Craigslist ad. The posters did not know that with their offer they had inadvertently created one of the funniest comedies of the decade. This is an excellent throwback to coitus comedies of the 2000s – something we don’t see as often anymore.

The film is directed by Gene Stupnitsky, who previously directed Good Boys and wrote several outstanding episodes of The Office. He proves to be a gifted and accomplished comedic director here. Straight, raunchy comedies are hard to come by in the 2020s, with the Judd Apatow style of filmmaking not being too en vogue these days. However, this film feels like classics like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up.

No Hard Feelings takes Jennifer Lawrence’s coitus appeal and plays it for laughs. The film pits her against nineteen-year-old Percy (Andrew Barth Feldman), an awkward young man about to graduate from college. It’s funny to see how a beautiful woman in her 30s tries to playful with an awkward teenager. It’s even funnier to see how he rejects your advances — completely immune to your charms. The antics resulting from Maddie’s repeated failed attempts to be Percy’s venereal fantasy are some of the movie’s brightest moments.

Lawrence is a joy here and fully committed. In her career, she has mainly serious projects such as The Hunger Games, Mother! and the causeway from last year. Because of this, her abundant comedic talents do not have much time to shine. She’s hilarious here and doesn’t miss a smack.

Feldman matches her energy as an endearingly shy guy. He is believable as naïver Melvin, who is at first confused by Maddie, but ultimately opens up to the idea of a relationship with her. Although it’s not a love story, there is a rom-com approach that feels sweet.

There is also a surprising amount of soul at the center of this movie. The characters are well developed and have a strong chemistry with each other. Although the characterization is appreciated, it doesn’t allow hard feelings to feel uneven because some scenes don’t end up as well as others and most of the funniest parts in the trailer are given away.

However, the film remains a comedic triumph. After all, an R-rated comedy released in the film is a rare animal. And although this film may be too indecent for some and not quite as strong as Stupnitsky’s other work, it is an excellent example of a successful coitus comedy.
