A movie night to get your mood up never hurt nobody.

While everyone is celebrating the renaissance of romantic comedies, with No Hard Feelings almost beating The Flash at the box office after its first weekend in theaters, you might want to catch up on some movies with similar vibes.

Here's a list of 5 comedies, with or without Jennifer Lawrence, that share the same essence as No Hard Feelings and will help you lighten the mood and make your evenings a little more amusing.

Blockers (2018)

This is the movie you didn't know you needed to see until you did. Starring Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and John Cena, Blockers explores a different take on an unconventional but still overprotective group of parents. The only difference from No Hard Feelings is that this time the helicopter parents are trying to protect their kids' modesty, not the other way around.

Don't Look Up (2021)

If you're curious to see Jennifer Lawrence explore the comedy genre rather than romance, you'll probably enjoy Don't Look Up, as it's the actress' first fully comedic performance. Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, and many other very famous actors also took part in the production.

Can't Buy Me Love (1987)

Returning to romantic comedies with rather strange premises, this one would not leave you disappointed. Contrary to the movie's title, its main character Ronald Miller pays popular cheerleader Cindy Mancini $1000 to become his girlfriend and save his high school life from complete failure.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)

No matter how old you are, the pressure to become sexually active will always follow you. The 40-Year-Old Virgin is not only packed with an amazing cast of comedic actors like Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Seth Rogen, but it also tackles a subject that turns out to be just as intimate for adults as it is for teenagers.

The Girl Next Door (2004)

Although the premise is not exactly the same, this movie perfectly captures the awkwardness of a teen falling in love with someone much more mature than himself. In every sense of the word, considering the friendly hot neighbor turns out to be a former adult worker.
