Going by the trailer, we say she isn't wrong!
Jennifer Lawrence reckons her new film No Hard Feelings is going to be a return the outrageous romantic comedies of the past.
In an interview with Sky News she said: “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"
“Everybody in some sense will be offended by this film — you’re welcome.”
In the film, the Oscar-winning actress plays an Uber driver facing bankruptcy who accepts a Craigslist ad to date and seduce an awkward 19-year-old whose helicopter parents don't want him leaving for college as a virgin.
From that description alone I think we can surmise this movie will have a lot of inappropriate jokes!
The 19-year-old in question (played by 21-year-old actor Andrew Barth Feldman) also spoke to Sky News about the film.
“We need to be able to engage with being offended. There was and is like a big overcorrect because we realized there were so many things that we were joking about that we shouldn’t be,”
“I think this movie does a really good job of continuing to push limits while still engaging with the conversation that the things that these people are doing are wrong and not a good idea.” the actor added.
Jennifer Lawrence commented that No Hard Feelings doesn't make the same mistakes as comedy movies of the past.
“Something we learned from the old-time comedies is mean comedy is not really funny … making somebody feel bad about themselves – other than me making fun of me. But the way that we did it is fine, we figured it out.”
We're definitely curious about the film, we reckon it will have a nostalgic feel to it!
No Hard Feelings is now showing in cinemas across Dublin.
