Jennifer Lawrence stars in the upcoming raunchy comedy ‘No Hard Feelings’ as Maddie Barker, an Uber driver who is forced to take on an unusual job to get her car back after it is repossessed. The movie revolves around the wealthy parents of an academically gifted but socially clueless teenage boy named Percy, who are hiring Maddie to seduce and date their son before he goes to college. The film is directed by Gene Stupnitsky, who previously directed the R-rated comedy ‘Good Boys’ in 2019.
Clip From The Film At CinemaCon
At the annual movie theater trade show, CinemaCon, a clip from the upcoming film was shown exclusively to the audience. The clip received huge laughs, and director Gene Stupnitsky praised Jennifer Lawrence as “a true comedy natural.”
In the sequence shown at CinemaCon, Maddie wears a tight pink minidress and heels as she attempts to adopt a dog from the shelter where Percy works. One of the canines was a former police pup who was forced into retirement because he got addicted to cocaine.
Sex Jokes And Flirting In The Film
In the clip, Jennifer Lawrence let sex jokes fly as Maddie attempts to flirt with Percy. After numerous attempts at flirting go undetected, Maddie insists on driving Percy home in her unmarked van as Billy Squire’s “The Stroke” plays over the radio. Maddie tries to make conversation by saying, “You know what this song always makes me think about? Stroking.” The scene ends with Percy dousing her in pepper spray.
The film is set to release in theaters on June 23, and the cast also includes Matthew Broderick, Laura Benanti, and Natalie Morales.

We were sure that movie theaters would not just survive – but triumph.”
