On the 315th episode of Piecing It Together, Derrick Murray joins me to talk about No Hard Feelings. This raunchy, R-rated comedy starring Jennifer Lawrence is a throwback to the kind of comedies that dominated the 2000s. Puzzle pieces include The 40 Year Old Virgin, Eurotrip, Easy A and Borat.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for No Hard Feelings and the movies we discuss!
NOTE: Correction… I mentioned on the episode that No Hard Feelings was tracking for #1 at the box office… I don’t know where the hell I saw that, but even though it’s doing VERY well for this kind of comedy in 2023, it’s definitely not #1 at the box office.
