  • Unacceptable movie

    By The Sci-Fi Master
    J-Law, I’m very disappointed in your movie. 🎶 There was a part I didn’t like. Joy got put in Prison because of a stupid theft. I had a DVD of it, but I threw it away in a furious rage. That title of yours said it would bring joy to us people, but people instead said, “This movie is Joyless,” and since it had no success, it won’t get a sequel at all. 🎶 And I never wanna see your movie again.

    By dr lisa: not bad for a girl
    I cannot relate to the bad reviews. This movie was not to dazzle entertain, in the way Silver Linings was. It is a story of a woman who dedicated herself to others and put her own needs and creativty on hold. And then one day, she had enough. She started with crayons and pushed with the support of her friend, daughter, ex-husbnad and sometimes supportive, sometimes assehole of a father and his most recent lover and her money and competitive sister. She deals with the ups and downs of consumers and sellers rejecting something new, police, debt, doubt, poor marketing by QVC, and then theft of her patent. Yet her determination and combacks are awesome. I always seem to like Jennifer. And in many of her movies, she is often somber. What I like most about her in this film, is her eloquent calm demeanor to others given set back after setback. Very realistic. Great ending and victory. Love matriarchs.

  • OMG! One of my new favorite movies!!

    By phxdaddy
    Loosely based on the real life and events of a true entrepreneur. I've laughed through and loved every moment. You kinda have to appreciate sarcasm and a "complex" family unit to relate. My family is Sicilian so I can seriously relate to the drama and how emotional baggage can weigh heavily on the heart but at the same time motivate and inspire. Drama and comedy with a lovely Hollywood ending.
  • one word "Lawrence"

    She as always is amazing. I think it's difficult as a viewer to suffer through so many failures when you know in the end she wins!
  • Decent but Akward

    By theman3510
    The movie is slow and clumsy. Only kept watching to see the happy ending so I didn't feel so bad in the end. Worth renting if it's on sale for $0.99
  • Great story line, kind of dragged

    By Kurstin H
    This movie was great but it took a while to cut to the main story line. The beginning doesn't make sense with a soap opera, but if you continue watching for about 45 minutes, it gets better. I reccomend.
  • Good movie of Christmas Day

    By Jolovesgum
    This movie came out on Christmas day and it was a good movie to watch for part of my family. I watched it last night with my mom at home and loved it.

    Joy is one of those rare inspirational films that leave you walking out of the theater feeling hopeful. Jennifer Lawrence does a great acting job, too.
