Jim Judy quote iconIt'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.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconJoy 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.
