Critic Reviews of "Joy"Boston GlobeJanuary 03, 2016
The movie's a shambles, alternatingly agreeable and aggravating, held together by our interest in its heroine and by Lawrence's tremendously sympathetic performance.Salon.comJanuary 03, 2016
Russell is almost totally uninterested in the story of how Joy Mangano explored a bizarre and unknown new business model and became its first self-made tycoon, and as a result we aren't interested either.Us WeeklyDecember 28, 2015
Two years after Jennifer Lawrence appeared in David O. Russell's American Hustle, she gets to show some.ReelViewsDecember 25, 2015
Joy can be viewed as a modern day rags-to-riches fairytale. It's Cinderella without the prince. In a way, that's part of the film's charm.San Diego ReaderDecember 25, 2015
It's clear that the point here isn't people, it's payoff, emotional and otherwise.Globe and MailDecember 25, 2015
Perhaps people who make gazillions selling housewares on The Shopping Channel deserve to be honoured; if they do, Joy is not a fitting tribute to Mangano - nor to the mop.Film InquiryFebruary 24, 2017
Joy is far from Joyful; with an uninteresting narrative, performances that feel drained of passion and a filmmaker caught between his roots and his new-found mainstream sensibility, it is an utter mess.Counterpunch.orgFebruary 03, 2017
A briskly entertaining film about a woman who "makes it" as an entrepreneur, even if the film fosters Horatio Alger type illusions in a period of deep capitalist decline.The Mary SueJanuary 09, 2017
Joy ends up feeling like a missed opportunity.Washington City PaperJanuary 09, 2017
Throughout, you're never really given the chance to figure out what makes Joy tick.Hindustan TimesJanuary 09, 2017
The occasional use of dream sequences and flashbacks, particularly to Joy's courtship and marriage, are jarring. But Russell draws out expert performances from the ensemble.Sunday Times (UK)December 17, 2016
Joy feels joyful; it is joyful; it is dreamlike and completely trivial; but it knows it is trivial.
