No Hard Feelings focuses on J-Law’s character, Maddie, who is behind on all her property taxes and is at risk of having her home possessed. To make matters worse? She’s an uber driver who’s just had her car re-possessed. Unclear of a way out of financial ruin, Maddie sees a craigslist posting where two helicopter parents want an older woman to date their son and help bring him out of his shell. In exchange, they’ll give a Buick Regal for her time.

Unfortunately, Maddie eventually starts to become friends with the son, Percy (played by Andrew Barth Feldman), and this throws an uncomfortable dynamic into the mix.

19 Movies like No Hard Feelings: Loser (2000)

Directed by Amy Heckerling, Loser is an American romantic comedy about Paul Tannek, a small-town student who moves to New York City to attend Columbia University. Once in New York, Paul finds himself struggling to adjust to the big city and fit in with his more sophisticated classmates.

As Paul starts to come out of his shell and embrace life in the city, he also finds himself falling in love with Dora. But just as things seem to be going well, Paul’s past comes back to haunt him, and he must choose between his old life and his new one.

Loser was also the film in which the song “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus featured on its soundtrack. Although interestingly, the song Teenage Dirtbag is more about high school aged teenagers (which Paul and Dora aren’t) and includes a lyric “listen to Iron Maiden, baby” (which they don’t, they see Everclear at a concert instead). Otherwise, it’s an alright movie. It does its thing.

16. The Girl Next Door (2004)

19 Movies like No Hard Feelings: The Girl Next Door (2004)

Directed by Luke Greenfield, The Girl Next Door is a romantic comedy starring Emile Hirsch as Matthew Kidman, a high school student who has lived a sheltered life and is on track to become valedictorian. But his life gets turned upside down when a former porn star named Danielle (played by Elisha Cuthbert) moves in next door.

As Matthew gets to know Danielle, he discovers that she is much more than the pornstar stereotype. The Girl Next Door mixes coming-of-age, teen and even p*rnstar stereotypes to deliver a unique (at least for the time) story that is as entertaining as it is tongue in cheek. Sorry, bad pun.

17. There’s Something About Mary (1998)

19 Movies like No Hard Feelings: There’s Something About Mary (1999)

Directed by the Farrelly Brothers, There’s Something About Mary is a romantic comedy, starring Cameron Diaz as “Mary,” a woman who is the object of the desires of many men. Even that of Ben Stiller’s character Ted.

There’s no shortage of random, off-beat, larrikin scenes that involve Ted’s character and the other men in Mary’s life who are competing with him at every twist and turn. If there was ever a 90s rom com that was bigger than American Pie then this movie would definitely take out that prize.

18. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

10 Things I Hate About You also has one of the best soundtracks of any of the films on this list. So it’s certainly worth diving back in to this classic!
