What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Crazy family just can't get a handle on normal life.
Paul Boekkooi Joy se eenvroustryd onderhoudend.
Todd McCarthy Beating the odds.
Jim Judy It's not awful, but with the bar previously raised so high and with so many of the behind the scenes and in front of the camera performers in place, I have no joy in saying that Joy is only okay when I was hoping for something great.
Tomatometer Joy is anchored by a strong performance from Jennifer Lawrence, although director David O. Russell's uncertain approach to its fascinating fact-based tale only sporadically sparks bursts of the titular emotion.
