Sony has released the first trailer for the sassy comedy “No Hard Feelings,” in which Jennifer Lawrence plays a woman who answers two helicopter parents’ Craigslist ad to sleep with their sheltered 19-year-old son before he goes off to college.
The highly R-rated trailer opens with Lawrence’s character Maddie approaching the awkward Percy at a dog adoption center and asking “Do you mind if I touch your wiener?” before revealing that he keeps a dachshund wiener. On the brink of losing her childhood home, Maddie makes every last effort to fulfill her parents’ dubious request and sleep with Percy. She slims down, fills him with Long Island iced tea and kidnaps him in a hilarious scene in a van before pepper spraying him in the face.
In addition to Lawrence, the cast includes Andrew Barth Feldman as Percy, Matthew Broderick as his father, Laura Benanti as his mother, plus Natalie Morales, Hasan Minhaj, Kyle Mooney, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Scott MacArthur and more. Producers include Lawrence, Alex Saks, Naomi Odenkirk, Marc Provissiero, Justine Ciarrocchi and executive producers John Phillips and Kerry Orent.
Gene Stupnitsky directs “No Hard Feelings” from a script he co-wrote with John Phillips. Previously, Stupnitsky created the equally raunchy comedy “Good Boys” from 2019, a coming-of-age film starring Jacob Tremblay, and co-wrote 2011’s “Bad Teacher” and 2009’s “Year One.”
Lawrence is coming off a resurgence in the past few years, including starring in last year’s Apple TV+ drama “Causeway” plus Netflix’s end-of-the-world comedy “Don’t Look Up” in 2021.
“No Hard Feelings” opens in theaters on June 23. Watch the R-rated trailer below.
