JOY:  This is an odd subject for a film... a biopic of the woman who invented the "Wonder Mop."   That being said, it is totally enjoyable (a little slow getting started) and also totally fascinating watching it unfold.  Jennifer Lawrence absolutely shines as the beaten-down heroine who finally attains her dream.  Robert DeNiro,  Bradley Cooper, Diane Lane and a knockout performance by Isabella Rossalini add to the wonderment of this Golden Globe nominee.  (Along the way. we get Melissa Rivers playing her mother Joan.... Yes the mop made it to QVC) The plot is not complicated and probably half-true but you still exit the theater feeling good, having observed this particular woman's journey  Yes, it is a joy!
