Ever since The Hunger Games series wrapped, Jennifer Lawrence has struggled to find her place within the industry.Where once she was meeting Harvey Weinstein and being propelled into super stardom over a very short period of time, now Hollywood can’t decide if the former X-Men actress is a franchise star, an Oscar-winning artist, or just box office poison.

While she has been in some pretty awful films in recent years – so much so that she even took a two-year break from acting in 2019 – this uncertainty towards Lawrence isn’t helped by the fact that a lot of stupidity regularly comes out of her mouth.

Thanks to her ability to stick her foot in her mouth, Lawrence has begun to repel audiences away from any film she is involved in, to the point where she’s now taken to starring and producing in her own films – like No Hard Feelings.An R-rated sex comedy reflecting the degeneracy of our society and whose premise has many questioning if it would have been allowed to be made had the gender been flipped, No Hard Feelings stars Lawrence as Maddie Barker, a 32-year old Uber driver living in upstate New York who one day finds that her car – and thus her only source of income – has been repossessed.

With her house on the verge of following suit, Maddie soon stumbles upon a to answer a Craigslist ad from an older couple offering up a car to any woman willing to sleep with their young son Percy (Andrew Barth Feldman), who they fear is not adapting properly to adult life.Taking up their offer with the aim of dating Percy just long enough to get the car, Maddie soon finds that the more time she spends with him, the more she begins to actually like him.

Not romantically, of course, but Maddie does come to realize that she’s taking advantage of a teenager with a good heart for completely selfish reasons.It’s comical how Hollywood always wants to have their cake and eat it too.

The age of the ‘1980s sex comedy’ has been dead for quite some time and it’s Hollywood that killed it, having pushed the narrative that these types of films were problematic because they appealed to ‘The Male Gaze’ and sometimes used women for laughs.

And now, Hollywood wants to revive that same genre by using Lawrence as the vehicle to make it ‘acceptable’ – but in the end, all they managed to do was make a film that has no idea who its target market is.
