No Hard Feelings is undoubtedly going to be the comedy of the summer. Jennifer Lawrence headlines the raunchy R-rated comedy that has already made a statement with its first trailer. JLaw hasn’t had this fun onscreen in a long time.
The movie already has people buzzing and awaiting its release. No Hard Feelings is going to be a movie you have to see in theaters. HollywoodTop Storieshas rounded up everything we know about the cast, release date, and more.
The official red band trailer for No Hard Feelings was released on March 9. Maddie goes to great lengths to get her hands on a car so she can save her house. She finds an ad to “date” a couple’s son before he heads to Princeton in the fall.
Things between Maddie and Percy don’t get off to the best start. Percy pepper sprays Maddie when he thinks that she’s kidnapping him. During their time together, Maddie starts to bring Percy out of his shell and helps him gain some confidence.
No Hard Feelings has already started cleverly promoting the film. The marketing team put up a pink billboard in Massachusetts that said in big bold letters: “Need a car? ‘Date’ our son.” Many thought the billboard was real, but if you go to the DateOurSon.com website provided on the billboard, it takes you to the official No Hard Feelings website.
No Hard Feelings Cast
The one and only Jennifer Lawrence stars as Maddie in No Hard Feelings. The project was first announced in 2021 by Deadline. This is her first role since the 2022 critically-acclaimed film Causeway. The Oscar winner has mostly stuck to dramatic roles over the last decade, so No Hard Feelings is a delightful new turn for her. Jennifer also serves as a producer.

When his casting news was announced in September 2022, Andrew reposted the announcement on Instagram and wrote, “I’ve tried about five different captions but I just don’t really know how to explain this one and my head’s kind of exploding.”
Following the trailer’s release, Andrew posted on Instagram, “Yes, this is actually what the movie is about. no, I can’t believe it either. #NoHardFeelings coming to theaters (!!!!!!) this summer. watch the red band trailer now! AND THEN WATCH THE MOVIE LATER WHEN IT’S OUT I CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO SEE IT.”
No Hard Feelings also stars Matthew Broderick and Laura Benanti as Percy’s parents. Natalie Morales and Scott MacArthur play Maddie’s friends, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach plays Maddie’s ex’s Gary. Hasan Minhaj and Kyle Mooney also have roles.
