Lots of people I like and often love to see acting on screen in JOY, and the director has a history of well made flicks, so I'll blame the writing for why JOY was a disappointment.

Some great scenes, and a delight to watch Diane Ladd and Virginia Madsen do entertaining characters, and Jennifer Lawrence is always wonderful to watch—I could add others, like Bradley Cooper—but their characterizations, as engaging as they were at times, seemed almost random, like little skits forced into a connection with a plotless scattershot story.

So, I'd wait and see it on cable.
