No Hard Feelings (2023) review:a good weekend movie

Rating:6.5/10

No Hard Feelings (2023) is a charming romantic comedy based on a real-life Craigslist ad. This well-written film is rated R for its strong language, drug and alcohol use, as well as sexual content, including graphic nudity. With a runtime of 1 hour and 43 minutes, the movie offers a generous dose of laughs and memorable moments.

No Hard Feelings (2023) is brimming with quotable lines, a healthy dose of slapstick humor, and adult comedy that aligns with its R rating. For the majority of the movie, I found myself thoroughly entertained. The amusing premise and overall entertainment value are undeniable.

The cast brilliantly embraces the script, with each actor contributing their unique comedic flair and delivering punchlines with impeccable timing. Despite the stellar performances, I didn’t find the film to be as hilarious as Good Boys. No Hard Feelings (2023) tends to lean more towards the dramatic side, especially during the latter half when the comedic attempts become scarce.

In the last 30 minutes, the film loses some momentum as it takes on a more serious tone—marking an imperfect aspect of the movie. Nevertheless, No Hard Feelings (2023) is a delightful exploration of themes such as friendship, shyness, coming of age, wealth, loss, love, and sex.

Jennifer Lawrence’s character stands out, showcasing the actress’s remarkable talent. Overall, No Hard Feelings (2023) is an enjoyable weekend movie that’s sure to bring a smile to your face.
