Joy Movie Review: Fails to be a joyful ride despite a shining performance by Jennifer Lawrence
Star Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Virginia Madsen, Diane Lad and Elisabeth Rohm.

Director: David O. Russell

Producer: John Davis, Megan Ellison, Jonathan Gordon, Ken Mok and David O. Russell

Claps For: Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper’s performance

Slaps For: Slow pace, and Direction

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Story: The story is about Joy Mangano- a girl who dreamt of making it big since childhood but was constantly let down by her own mother, her sister and the constant troubles at home. However, Joy gets all her encouragement from her ex-husband, grandmother and her kids. Things change when she invents the self-wringing mop or the Miracle Mop. What follows next is her struggle to become the independent and successful businesswoman ‘Joy’.

Performances: It is Jennifer Lawrence who steals the show, and gives her best as Joy Mangano. She displays a variety of emotions and wins hearts as the strong and fearless businesswoman. However due to poor direction, it gets hard to have any kind of emotional connect with her character; and it appears more like a messed up tribute to Joy Mangano than an empowering one!

Bradley Cooper impresses in the little role he has got.

While the others, including Robert De Niro, have given their best playing half-baked roles.

Direction: Well, well. This one wasn’t expected from David o. Russell. The film ends up being a dragged mess, going in no particular direction. The film does a get a little better during the second half, yet just doesn’t end up being a perfect tribute to Joy Mangano.

Neither the emotional aspect of the movie, nor the ambitious side of Joy, nor her family problems have been shown in a proper manner. Filled with flaws, ‘Joy’ fails to strike a chord and create any kind of magic.

Combo-On-Offer: Drama

Verdict: We give the movie SLAPS for being a messy biopic.
