The Silver Linings Playbook/American Hustle crew is back! And possibly better than ever!! David O Russell and Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper bring the JOY and the pain in what has got to be the greatest movie that has something to do with a mop and/or QVC – Joy
Joy is prideful, and joyful, and funny, and mildly melancholy, and 300% fun. You know the movie is super super dope when it utilizes Robert De Niro talent (in this day and age) and instead of stupefying it. And you know I aint no J-Law fan, but I love J-Law in this, and thus I love this movie!!
And the story is all true-ish!!!
Joy Mangano is an inventor. She invented the Miracle Mop
At one point in time, there was no Miracle Mop, and Ms Mangano needed a miracle to support her children, and her ex-husband, and her wacky mother, and her twice-divorced father. The mop changed everything and this movie is about getting that mop to market and the struggles to get there. A total underdog story, that you’ll be rooting for from the get go. Go Joy! Go Joy! Go!!!!!!!!
Wait, they made a whole movie about a woman who invented a mop? Well, it’s more than juss that. It’s about ideas, and family, and things and stuff. And what a family!! You couldn’t ask for a more fun and willing bunch of family folks helping her along – Isabella Rossellini, Édgar Ramírez, Elisabeth Röhm, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen and the Gadsby twins. Loved them all. Makes me wish I was a member of her family so I could hug these people!!!
And the QVC stuff was super cool. You get to see what it looked like at the beginningish, and things, and stuff, and I think it’s juss so super super super cool and honorable that Melissa Rivers played her mom Joan Rivers, and how eerily alike they look
Did we mention that this movie was 300% fun? You like fun, right?
Verdictgo: Breast In Show
Joy to the world – everywhere on Xmas day
and until next thyme the balcony is clothed…
