It seems like Jennifer Lawrence has been off our screens for a while now, but she’s back with a new R-rated comedy called “No Hard Feelings” in which her character tries to seduce a 19-year-old who’s been deemed “unf**kable.”
The first trailer for “No Hard Feelings” was released this week, and it looks hilarious. Jennifer Lawrence plays Maddie, a woman who breaks up with her toxic boyfriend and ends up with no cash and no car. To change her fortunes, she answers a couple’s Craigslist ad looking for someone to “date” their 19-year-old son before he goes to college. (I think we all know what “date” means here.)
To Maddie, this seems like easy money. However, she underestimates just how awkward Percy, the “unf**kable” kid in question, really is. Percy can’t know that Maddie’s a plant — he needs to actually think she’s into him. Of course, he doesn’t pick up any of her hints.

If that doesn’t sound all that hilarious, trust me, it is. In one of the scenes, Maddie gets pepper sprayed by Percy because he assumes she’s trying to kidnap him. At another point, Percy accidentally punches her in the throat when trying to defend her. Even the trailer has people cracking up with laughter.
Even one of Lawrence’s co-stars, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, told Awards Radar: “I think Jennifer Lawrence is really goofy in this movie, in a way that she hasn’t been in the past.”
“The movie reminds me of some ‘90s comedies I really used to like. I don’t want to misrepresent the movie, but there were elements which reminded me of the Farrelly brothers, or ‘[There’s] Something About Mary.’ There’s a decent amount of physical comedy, and Jennifer Lawrence is very committed to it. It was a very funny set.”
In other words, it’s gonna be good.
In addition to Jennifer Lawrence, “No Hard Feelings” stars Matthew Broderick, Laura Benanti, Natalie Morales, Andrew Barth Feldman, Hasan Minhaj, Kyle Mooney, and lots of other talented actors.
“No Hard Feelings” will be in theaters on June 23, so get ready!
