Joy Review RatingPeter Travers (Rolling Stones)

In telling the story of the woman who invented the Miracle Mop, director-writer David O. Russell gets off to a wobbly start, builds to a wonderfully satirical middle and ends with a whimper. So, should you see Joy? I'd give it a shot. Sadly, Russell's movie is not a joy forever.

Joy Review RatingPeter Bradshaw (The Guardian)

David O Russell's Joy is an intriguing but weirdly subdued and stylised film starring Jennifer Lawrence, an imperious beauty and stylish fashion plate.Joy has divided opinion and I find myself agnostic.  Read Full Review

A. O. Scott (The New York Times)

In all its mess and glory "Joy" seems to move toward a foreordained conclusion, it zigzags and covers its tracks along the way, sending its heroine on a roller-coaster ride of raised hopes and brutal disappointments and playing tricks with the audience's expectations.   Read Full Review

Mihir Fadnavis (Firstpost)

The most surprising aspect of Joy is how mundane it feels. This is a story about the woman who invented the mop. That's about it. There's nothing exciting to subvert the mundaneness of the plot.   Read Full Review

Joy Review RatingRohan Nahar (Hindustan Times)

David O Russell has made an oddly old-fashioned movie, complete with surreal touches, absurd humour, over-the-top theatricality and a troupe of actors ready to lay down their lives for him.   Read Full Review
