Joy (2015)

Joy (Jennifer Lawrence), a struggling single mother with a knack for creating things, takes her talents to QVC to grab the American Dream by the mop handle in this based-on-a-true-story drama from director David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook). Not surprising that it also co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert Deniro.
My Two Cents: Nothing about this particularly stands out, save for the chemistry between the leads, and we already knew that worked from previous Russell efforts. "Boring" isn't really the right word, but it's the one that comes to mind.

Alternate My Two Cents: Second-best movie that prominently features a mop, behind Weird Al Yankovich's 1989 classic, UHF.

Drew's rating: 6/10
