No Hard Feelings (2023)

The idea of this movie is a hard stop for many social-media scolds: Jennifer Lawrence plays a 32-year-old restaurant worker and ride-share driver who needs money to pay her property-tax bills and save her house — so she answers an ad to “date” an extremely reserved 19-year-old played by Andrew Barth Feldman.

It’s full of incredibly awkward scenes in which she tries to seduce him, often against his will, but it’s very funny and has a good heart.

“I think it’s time for a good old-fashioned laugh and it really is hard to make a comedy where you’re not offending people,” the actress, who also serves as a producer on the film, told the UK’s Sky News Wednesday. “Everybody in some sense will be offended by this film — you’re welcome.”

Also? Feldman does a piano performance of a beloved ’80s hit that is an absolute showstopper. No Hard Feelings is currently streaming on Netflix, so you can keep rewinding.
