Jennifer Lawrence brought her comedic chops to Las Vegas. The Oscar-winner attended CinemaCon on Monday evening to promote Sony’s raunchy “No Hard Feelings,” which played to huge …,” played to huge laughs at the annual movie theatre trade show currently unfolding at Caesars Palace. Director Gene Stupnitsky praised Lawrence as “a true comedy natural” in her first R-rated comedy.
However, the first trailer for “No Hard Feelings” felt like a throwback to the ethically dubious sex comedies of the early 2000s. Also, mixed social media responses to the trailer have been noted as much. With brand new footage debuting at CinemaCon. However, audiences got the chance to see for themselves whether “No Hard Feelings” looks like a flop, a hit, or something in between.
Sex Jokes And Flirting In The Film
Therefore, in the clip, Jennifer Lawrence lets sex jokes fly as Maddie attempts to flirt with Percy. After numerous attempts at flirting go undetected, Maddie insists on driving Percy home in her unmarked van as Billy Squire’s “The Stroke” plays over the radio. Maddie tries to make conversation by saying, “You know what this song always makes me think about? Stroking.” The scene ends with Percy dousing her in pepper spray.
Why It Makes Perfect Sense for Jennifer Lawrence to Do a Raunchy Comedy Now
Jennifer Lawrence is a lot of things. She’s a gifted actress and has the Oscar, BAFTA, and Golden Globe to prove it. She knows how to work a red carpet, whether it be through fashion or her wonderfully honest “did-she-just-say-that”. She answers the usually vapid routine questions that are hurled at stars. She’s knowledgeable and cares about her craft. As evident in many roundtable discussions and in-depth interviews. She’s (thankfully) unafraid to call Hollywood out on its shit, whether it be about pay disparity (“It doesn’t matter how much I do. I’m still not going to get paid as much as that guy, because of my vagina?”) or invasion of privacy and intense scrutinization that — more often than not — wouldn’t happen to a male star. But one thing we have to remember is that she is funny. Like off-the-cuff, no-script-required funny.
There are of course several factors that play into this filmography omission, but luckily. Also, the planets, stars, moon, and everything else seem to have aligned. She’s grabbing the reins of No Hard Feelings. A flat-out comedy about a woman who agrees to date a painfully introverted 19-year-old in exchange for a car. This woman doesn’t exactly have her life — or anything — together, making this character the perfect protagonist for a chaotic comedy. And based on the trailer alone, it’s crystal clear that Lawrence is the person to play the part.
Jennifer Lawrence fans are excited for a break from her streak of four films
She has lately been focused on dark dramas and pitch-black satire. Also, Jennifer Lawrence delighted her fans with the release of the first trailer for her upcoming sex comedy No Hard Feelings on Thursday.
The trailer for the hard R-rated movie promises more laughs than Lawrence has delivered in years. Also, it’s the first straight-ahead comedy she has ever made. As most of her lighter projects have been dramedies or satires.
Lawrence, 32, stars in No Hard Feelings as a woman who responds to an ad from a set of parents who offer a car as a gift to any woman who is willing to date their straitlaced son before he leaves for college.
