    Synopsis


    Joy
    Biopic of entrepreneur Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence), a divorced mother of two who risks her life's savings to produce and market her invention, the Miracle Mop. Joy faces opposition from her dysfunctional family, including her father Rudy (Robert De Niro), as they meddle in her burgeoning business. But when the head of the newly founded QVC network (Bradley Cooper) gives her a chance to sell her product on live TV, the Miracle Mop becomes a household name. The success of that invention later leads to a home-shopping empire and Joy's ascension to the matriarch of her extended family. David O. Russell directed this briskly paced comedy-drama, with Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, and Elisabeth Röhm co-starring. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      Let's start here: the marketing for this movie was TERRIBLE. I didn't see it until a year after it came out in the theaters because it just didn't look appealing. Boy, was THAT wrong! This bio-pic has grit and gravity, humor and humanity. Most people will find aspects or moments of their own lives, struggles, and families in this film, which leaves enough hope and inspiration at the end to motivate you to go out and conquer the world--an excellent movie for young adults with a positive and realistic role model for young women as the subject.

      The American Dream

      The American Dream is still alive in David O Russell's latest film "Joy". A hilarious and poignant look at the American entrepreneurial spirit, through the lens of family dysfunction. Yes that sounds like an odd mix of themes, but it works. It shows the challenges, risks, pitfalls, and fortunes to be found in free-market enterprise when intelligent Americans apply their ingenuity. Very well acted by a great cast, with a funny script, this movie is a joy to watch. Pun intended.

      I was very hesitant about watching Joy. Let's face it; it's about the woman who invented the miracle mop, and that premise alone sounds boring! Unexpectedly, to my surprise it was a wonderful movie of substance with witty dialogue and entrancing character development. Director, David O. Russell has found his sweet spot with Such films as "Silverlinings Playbook", "The Fighter", "American Hustle", and now "Joy". Jennifer Lawerence is superb as well as the rest of the cast. A must see film!

      Started slow but gets better as it goes

      As the movie starts, it lays the foundation of the situation of the main character. I was thinking this was typical single mom being over-burden with life's challenges. Once she determines to overcome all her challenges, this is where it gets good. From her determination to make a better life for herself and tough decisions involved, I enjoyed it quite a bit. FYI, I can say my mom owns one of the mops depicted from the story as she purchases quite a bit from QVC.

      Thanks to a typically strong performance by Jennifer Lawrence and spot on period detail, "Joy" rises above most chick flicks though pairing her with Bradley Cooper for the upteenth time is getting a bit tedious. The movie covers four generations in two hours but its well paced. Add in some very pithy dialogue and the end result is a very smart piece of story telling. The film wraps up very nicely.

      I didn't originally plan on seeing this movie let alone purchasing a copy. Once again this is when have to watch a movie before judging it by its cover. Jennifer Lawrence is amazing in this film. You have your eyes on her at all times. The plot is great and slightly based on a true story. As the film goes there's a new dilemma after another. Emotional and fun it's a must watch and own.

      Another excellent performance from J-Law!

      I love anything with Jennifer Lawrence in it. This movie shows her in a dramatic role that is not a superhero or sci fi movie (not that there's anything wrong with X-Men or Passengers). This movie features Jennifer as a strong young woman who is determined to succeed in business despite the lack of support from her friends and family. Another great performance, you won't be disappointed.

      An interesting story about real life

      I purchased "Joy [Includes Digital Copy] [Blu-ray]" not really knowing what the story was really about. At first, it was slow going and seemed a bit depressing, but as the story moved along, I had a different impression. The story is about believing in yourself, which is what everyone needs to hear, more and more. This movie should be watched by young people who are just getting started in life.
