No Hard Feelings [2023] - Jennifer Lawrence, Andrew Barth Feldman

No Hard Feelings might not be re-inventing the wheel, but it’s slightly different take on the rom-com genre is certainly entertaining.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence & Andrew Barth Feldman, the movie takes a different route from the standard romantic comedies yet keeping it familiar. Instead of a boy accidentally meets girls, it’s girl intentionally meets boy. And instead of being happy ever after, we got a more realistic version of it.

If No Hard Feelings works, though, it’s largely because of the chemistry between Lawrence and Feldman. They make the dialogue fly, and both have a surprising talent for physical comedy. This frisky tale of seduction has a winning couple who add heart to the ribald laughs.

Story aside, it’s a real shame that Lawrence spent a decade playing noted sourpuss Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games and its sequels, as she has better comic timing than anyone else from her age cohort. Just watch any of the other current romantic comedies. They’re boring and awkward as hell.

No Hard Feelings, which plays super safe for a sex comedy, is just the medicine, as Lawrence makes patently silly scenes work with buckets of flair.
