The wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Édgar Ramírez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

Having read several of the reviews on this site, I was quite nervous about playing this film for myself and my husband, but I need not have worried. At the end, my husband was quite emotional: he thought it was a wonderful, wonderful film, with fantastic performances, by Jennifer Lawrence, Robert de Niro and Edgar Ramirez in particular. We both loved it. It was funny, touching, fun and a real delight. And it has a simply brilliant sound track, with lots and lots of great pop favourites.
A number of the unfavourable reviews here suggest that the film is slow, and the subject matter is trite or unimportant. Both suggestions are utterly unfair, and suggest the viewer has missed the point entirely. If you are looking for a breathless action-packed blockbuster, buy 'Transformers'. Yes, this film develops at a measured pace, but it is not slow, it builds. And whilst a floor mop may appear to be un-sexy, if you have invested everything in it and remortgaged your house to develop it, it is hardly unimportant! Anyway, the development of the mop is by-the-by, the real point is the journey that Joy takes to invent and market it. She is the mainstay of her family, the only person who really keeps the show on the road, and her tribulations are many. There is real joy in the film as she gradually succeeds.
This is a very human film, about a family of very ordinary flawed people, not villains or gangsters, just human flotsam and jetsom. This is about happiness and success on a human scale, and it is a delight.
The story is very wachable and in many parts funny and does strtch the truth...but very entertaining and Jennifer Lawrence is often in a comedy mood.
but this is every salesman dream to make a success
but in the most modern ways through television
