Synopsis [Lawrence] holds the screen as the gutsy entrepreneur-in-the-making, irrepressible in the face of constant discouragement....It’s a performance simmering with controlled passion, and a likely awards favourite.3 stars out of 4-- It’s obviously a star vehicle for Lawrence, but if anyone deserves a vehicle, she does.[P]art dark comedy, part dysfunctional family study, part inspirational tale....[With] some memorable set pieces and the best performance by Jennifer Lawrence since her breakout role in WINTER'S BONE...[Lawrence] again proves she can do anything, moving from comic to tragic without missing a beat.[Lawrence] is the kind of movie star who turns everyone else into a character actor. This is not a complaint but an acknowledgment of both her charisma and her generosity.[T]he splendidly dexterous cast ensures that this goofy success story, which could just easily be titled AMERICAN HUSTLE 2, keeps firing on all cylinders in the manner of the writer-director's previous few outings.4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his is another of Russell’s fractured, fractious families....The ace up his sleeve, of course, is Jennifer Lawrence, giving a gritty, gutsy, bewitching performance that’s the match of anything in her career.[T]he person who has most fun is De Niro, who seems -- on the evidence of this and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK-- to perk up for Russell as for no other director these days.JOY is a messy marvel, perhaps the most prodigious child yet of the arranged marriage between Russell’s busy, eccentric storytelling style and classic Hollywood form.Biopic of entrepreneur Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence), a divorced mother of two who risks her life's savings to produce and market her invention, the Miracle Mop. Joy faces opposition from her dysfunctional family, including her father Rudy (Robert De Niro), as they meddle in her burgeoning business. But when the head of the newly founded QVC network (Bradley Cooper) gives her a chance to sell her product on live TV, the Miracle Mop becomes a household name. The success of that invention later leads to a home-shopping empire and Joy's ascension to the matriarch of her extended family. David O. Russell directed this briskly paced comedy-drama, with Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, and Elisabeth Röhm co-starring.
