Joy is a surprisingly engrossing tribute to the inventive minds who have created so many of the conveniences we take for a granted.

I love the expedition that this wonderfully complex heroine is on, watching her use her intelligence to get what she wants out of life is gloriously gratifying.
July 25, 2016
The true joy in this movie is another standout performance from Lawrence and its definitely worth watching for that alone, however the story of the Miracle Mop inventor is seriously lacking in any kind of sparkle.
July 10, 2016
It's a fascinatingly dysfunctional star vehicle, but given its apparent goals, a successful one.
June 22, 2016
The joy in this 124-minute drama comes from watching the fabulously chosen cast play off each other.
May 16, 2016
Joy is worth seeing for Lawrence alone.
May 7, 2016
It works almost entirely due to the passion and drive that Lawrence brings to the screen.
April 26, 2016
Engrossing, moving, funny and filled with charismatic performances, Joy just might be that film everyone looks back on in 10 years with exclamations of "underrated".

The movie's quieter moments provide the necessary depth so that the ultimate litmus test is fulfilled: When Joy presents her mop on QVC, you feel every bit of her emotions.
April 6, 2016
It's just another likeable Russell-Lawrence knockabout.

Even though David O. Russell's latest project is not completely without its faults and flaws, Joy... offers just enough quirkiness and off-beat charm to make this occasionally confusing, yet inspiring, story about hope, dreams and a magic mop.
March 26, 2016
Joy may be the story of the exceptional woman who invented the Miracle Mop - but the heartstrings David O. Russell plucks are universal.
March 16, 2016
Joy is beautifully crafted by writer/director David O. Russell; the imperceptible subjective style allows it to overcome almost all of those biopic poison chalices; Jennifer Lawrence's focal performance is dazzling; and yet, it's disposable.
March 2, 2016
The film's plot isn't entirely convincing and the ending leaves you with an empty sense of satisfaction, unlike other David O. Russell films. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 2, 2016
It's laissez-faire in cheap white-gold jewelry; an Old Hollywood knock off with more personality than the real thing.
March 1, 2016
Joy is indeed joyous, but, just like the recent Pixar animation Inside Out, it doesn't forget that it is sadness that completes the equation of balance.
February 20, 2016
Joy is a small-stakes story told with the highest of energy.
February 1, 2016
Fortunately, Russell in his sincerity has his thoughts on the cotton and also something more: the possibility of being oneself and connecting authentically with other people, in a society warped by artifice. In other words, Joy stars Jennifer Lawrence.
January 26, 2016
Joy is worth the admission price just to see the performances and to check how rebellious and original O'Russel can be as a director and writer. [Full review in Spanish]
January 25, 2016
An uneven fairytale about an inventor perfectly portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence. [Full review in Spanish]
