No Hard Feelings is a 2023 American ‘sex comedy’ film directed by Gene Stupnitsky. It stars Jennifer Lawrence and Andrew Barth Feldman.

The story begins with 32-year-old Maddie Barker (Lawrence), an Uber driver and bartender who is facing bankruptcy after her car is repossessed as she owes property taxes on a home she inherited from her mother. Desperate to avoid losing the home, she accepts an unusual Craigslist posting. Her new employers, a pair of helicopter parents known as the Beckers, ask her to ‘date’ their 19-year-old son Percy Becker (Feldman) in exchange for a Buick Regal. Percy has no experience with girls, drinking, parties, or sex, and his parents hope to boost his confidence before he attends Princeton University in the fall.

You can see where this is going can’t you?

The movie bumbles along with seduction, animal shelters (naww) skinny dipping, drunken teenagers, stolen clothes, a police chase, a prom, ibuprofen, alcohol and pepper spray!

It all comes to a head when Percy finds out he said, she said and they said. It has a car crash and an adopted dog called Milo… really, what more could you ask for in a movie?

You can see No Hard Feelings at Palace Cinemas in Byron Bay and the new Palace at Ballina Fair. Visit: www.palacecinemas.com.au.
