#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Joy has always been fascinated by creating things, This pursuit was always supported emotionally by her maternal grandmother, Mimi. Joy feels that lack of practical support has led to others making fortunes on ideas she came up with years ago but could not act upon manufacturing. Despite being broke, Joy is the person in her extended family to whom everyone has always turned, in the process forgoing her own life, including not having attended college to help see her parents through their divorce. She works in an unsatisfying job as an Eastern Airlines ticket clerk; and lives with her mother Terry who spends all day in bed watching soap operas; her ex-husband Tony, a less than successful aspiring Latino Tom Jones wannabe; and their two children. Added to this mix is her father Rudy, the owner of a failing heavy-duty garage, which is managed by Joy’s older half-sister Peggy, with whom she has somewhat of a strained relationship, and for which Joy does the books. Sharon, Rudy’s latest girlfriend who has just dumped him, drops him off on Joy’s doorstep, making Joy’s home life even more complicated as Rudy does not get along with either Terry or Tony. Joy begins to feel buried by her life, in the process her childhood dream of making things seemingly getting farther and farther away. As such, Joy decides to make some changes in her life, and expects the unquestioning practical support of her family. Those changes include manufacturing a new product of her design; what she chooses this time around being a self-wringing mop. That support also includes being able to pitch the idea to Rudy’s current wealthy girlfriend, Trudy. Even if she does get to the manufacturing stage, Joy will have to battle the narrow minds of business executives in marketing her product, that is unless she can find a way to get into the homes of the American public in one fell swoop. But nothing is a done deal until the consumer forks out his/her hard earned money for the product and all the legal issues are dealt with. Joy has to decide if she will “pick up the gun” as Trudy asked in their initial investment meeting in dealing with an especially troublesome legal issue.
Plot: A story based on the life of a struggling Long Island single mom who became one of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs.

Joy just doesn’t work.
David O. Russell tries to use their preferred cast in yet another story about a dysfunctional family which drags down the main character and how this character, in opposition to her own family and any other coming difficulty, overcomes everything and leads to success.
We have already watched similar stories in “The Fighter” and “Silver Linings Playbook” and, although weirdly, in those movies it worked, but not in this one any more.
Specially, the ending seems abruptly rushed and truncated and the “Citizen Kane” moment is quite childish and obvious.
> A small accident can lead to a great achievement, but difficult path is certain.
It is a semi-biographical film about a person who invented a modern hygienic mop. So all the depicted events and characters were partially real, but for the cinematic reason they have been fairly altered for a good outcome. And yes, I loved it. A very inspiring film among all the Oscars nominees this year. In some way I also felt Jennifer Lawrence should have got the award for her fine character display.
Honestly, I was not interested in this, so I wanted to get over it silently as soon as possible. But I ended up enjoying a lot and instantly it became one of my favourites of the 2015. What I expected after watching its trailer was like I judged it by its cover. As I hesitated in the earlier, but strangely now I’m recommending it to all.
The story of a woman who grew up listening her grandmother’s motivational speeches. But realises the life is tougher than she thought and making a living is very competitive. After so many struggles in the life, she finally invents something that changes her and her family fortune forever. But like any new initiative does face, the problems arise and how she is going to fix them is what the remaining film narrates.
A very interesting film in the perspective of the career option. Forget the doctors, engineers, lawyers and those who’re settled in their lives with a good job in hand that pays big, but there are billions of people, to them it will definitely serve as an inspiration to ignite their future.
The rating for this looks like a fair value, but still a very underrated film everywhere. Amazing actors, a little funny and a little emotional, but a very impressive film directed by the one who bought the Oscars to Jennifer Lawrence for their earlier venture together. I don’t know what’s between her and Bradley Cooper, but looks like their onscreen chemistry is doing something big impact. This is their’s fourth project together and second with the director, so I hope they do more in the future as well. This is really a wonderful film, so don’t miss it.
Honoring Jennifer Lawerence’s 29th birthday again and damn this movie is great!
Only seen Joy once before this cause I bought it on iTunes a few years ago and happily watching again because Jennifer is perfection! She deserves everything good in her life and so does the Director David O. Russell! Great story about Joy inventing the best mop ever while having family complications meanwhile trying to be successful.
So well filmed even if it sometimes keeps your attention at bay. This is the kind of movie that deserves award nods even if it doesn’t achieve them, in my eyes it’s a spectacular drama! I also wanna mention its got one of the slickest soundtracks; I love this movie for what it is!!
More than I was expecting
I was not drawn to Joy when it was first released because it just looked like a made for TV movie. I was surprised when Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance and still had no real desire to see Joy. Joy popped up on my new releases list on Apple TV today so I thought I would just watch the first 10 minutes to get an idea whether it would be watching or not. After 10 minutes I knew this was worth watching so my husband and I watched it and to both of our surprise we really liked it. Jennifer Lawrence was outstanding in her role as Joy. I’ve always thought Lawrence was an amazing actress since I saw her in Winter’s Bone. She is the real deal. She is destined for more success with each film she is in. DeNiro is amazing as always. It is a wonderful story that should have received better reviews. I can understand why it wasn’t a box office hit but it is definitely worth watching.
