The Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence will star in the coming-of-age comedy No Hard Feelings, released in 2023. The cast of the film, as well as its plot, trailer, and release date, have all been revealed. The movie’s plot centers around a bankrupt Uber driver who takes an offer from a wealthy couple to make their son, who is 19 years old, more outgoing in social situations. The couple even asks her to date their son. The writer and director of No Hard Feelings is Gene Stupnitsky, best known for penning the screenplay for Bad Teacher and making his directorial debut with the critically praised picture Good Boys. A Red Band trailer provides a taste of the film’s racy humor. In addition to writing the screenplay, Stupnitsky collaborated with John Phillips, who wrote the script for Dirty Grandpa.
The notion of No Hard Feeling has drawn people’s attention, not only because Lawrence is attached to the project in the main actor and producer roles. According to an article published in Entertainment Weekly, the seed for the movie was first planted when Marc Provissiero and Naomi Odenkirk forwarded a peculiar ad posted on Craigslist to Stupnitsky. In a manner quite similar to that depicted in No Hard Feelings, the couple that placed the advertisement was looking for a woman who could assist in making friends with and dating their socially shy son. However, due to the significant age gap between the film’s two main protagonists and the storyline, Lawrence’s newest film is already generating debate among moviegoers.

What is the Plot of No Hard Feeling?
The slacker from Long Island who gets hired by an affluent couple to help them socialize their shy son before he heads off to college will be the protagonist of the upcoming drama No Hard Feelings. According to several reports, the movie had a great deal of inspiration from the movies “Bad Teacher” and “Risky Business.”
The following is what the summary from Sony reads:
When Maddie (Lawrence) comes across an intriguing job offering, she is under the impression that she has found the solution to her financial woes. The job description states that rich helicopter parents seek someone to “date” their shy 19-year-old son, Percy, and draw him out of his shell before he departs for college. Percy’s awkwardness, on the other hand, turns out to be a greater obstacle than she had anticipated, and the clock is ticking. She has one summer to turn him into a man, or she will lose everything.
