Netflix, the never-sleeping streaming behemoth, constantly provides a wide variety of content to its global audience. A common query among subscribers is whether a particular film or television series is available on the platform. This article explores the most recent chatter surrounding “No Hard Feelings” and Netflix’s availability.
Is No Hard Feelings on Netflix?
Though a precise date is not currently known, based on the film’s release plan, No Hard Feelings should begin streaming on Netflix sometime around October 2023 and will stay there for 18 months. Sony has a secondary agreement with Disney, so after the 18-month window, No Hard Feelings will also (or instead) commence streaming on a Disney platform.
Given the film’s R rating, this will presumably be Hulu in the United States rather than Disney Plus. From there, the streaming home of No Hard Feelings will depend on the film’s performance. Given its effective theatrical release (something that will be difficult to achieve after 2020), the film’s prospects are favorable.
No Hard Feelings Is Currently Available on VOD
The VOD distribution of No Hard Feelings occurred on August 15, 2023. This occurred just a few months after the film’s theatrical release in June 2023, continuing Sony Picture’s aggressive release strategy, which has proved successful in the past.
The film is not yet available for rental or purchase on home media, but this is anticipated to change in the first half of September. Popular media retailers such as Prime Video, Google Play, and Apple TV currently offer No Hard Feeling for digital purchases at a price of $19.99.
- Prime Video – $19.99
- Google Play – $19.99
- Apple TV – $19.99
- Vudu – $19.99
- ROW8 – $19.99
Gross of No Hard Feelings at The Box Office?
R-rated romcoms were all the rage in the early 2000s, but their box office performance has declined considerably over the past decade. This genre’s films became repetitive and predictable, and the concept of a raunchy summertime romantic comedy became less appealing to audiences each year.
No Hard Feelings altered this with its box office record for the 2020s. The film’s domestic opening was $15 million (according to Box Office Mojo), and its current domestic gross is $50 million. The worldwide total of No Hard Feelings is $85 million, a phenomenal start for a modern R-rated comedy.
Given that No Hard Feelings had a budget of approximately $45 million, its box office earnings make it a financial success, which means that more R-rated comedies, and presumably more starring Jennifer Lawrence, will be released in the years to come. The success of the film is reflected in its reception, which garnered a score of 71% from critics and 87% from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes.
Overall, it appears that a theatrical release was the best option for No Hard Feelings, and its availability on VOD and future release on home media and streaming services will undoubtedly elevate the Stupnitsky film to an even greater level.
