As far as anyone knows, no one ever responded to the Craigslist ad, hence Lawrence’s character, Maddie, as well as the portrayal of teenage Percy and his parents (Matthew Broderick And Laura Benanti), are completely formed.

‘No Hard Feelings’ is the heartfelt, passionate comedy that Jennifer Lawrence needed
don’t feel bad It’s a ridiculously dirty movie, but it wouldn’t work if it wasn’t full of heart. Although it is hidden behind the profanity-laden guise of late-night sex comedy, don’t feel bad Highlights complex topics, like dealing with intense bullying or moving on after tragedy. While at first glance it seems like there should be a clear villain in the film, whether it’s overbearing parents or an adult woman trying to get a 19-year-old girl into bed, don’t feel bad There really aren’t any bad people. While many of us would kill our parents if we found out they made online mating calls for us, Percy’s parents really want their son to be happy, no matter how depraved his methods. May not be.
Similarly, Maddie isn’t stupid and doesn’t violate Percy’s boundaries., instead he learned to care deeply for her and eventually became the friend she always needed. Even when she’s behaving completely inappropriately (like having a naked fight with teenagers on the beach or trying to seduce Percy when he’s clearly not ready to have sex) , then it’s clear that the film is not condemning his actions, but using them as one.

Alas, it seems as if the ad that started it all is lost in the darkest corners of Craigslist, but thankfully someone took a look and thought of Jennifer Lawrence.
