Do not listen to the bad reviews that say: "Do not listen to the good reviews ".
A nice, quirky, well-acted movie that was never boring.

Loved it!

Love an under dog winning through inspire of it all. That is what this film is about. Glorious and simple with an old fashioned system that has perplexed some reviewers here. Loved it. Jennifer Lawrence is classy and sassy in this. Quite an original true story folks. Worth a visit.

Bit of a slow film, was an interesting plot but I think ultimately failed to deliver unfortunately.

No silver linings playbook

Love this directors other films but this is thin sauce indeed. So contrived and silly or as my friend put it 'the best film I've ever seen about a mop' Not ironic, not fun. Avoid

joy!

Given the potential of the actors, this was a big disappointment. The tone is flippant, and the attempted humour is almost slapstick, but doesn't work. There is a focus on details, but at the expense of the wider arc of the plot, which is important because the movie deals with Joy's whole story. The last few minutes were the best, but were not enough to save the film.

When is Robert Deniro going to do something worthwhile?

Had to give up after 15minutes, just unconvincing. Irritating.

It’s a mess

I fought through it on a flight (thanks God didn’t pay money for it), hate to say it but it is just not a good movie. The plot is all over the place, confusing mess with that weird cutting in and out of time events, narrating from her from others. The ruined a good real-life story here. Maybe they tried to be artsy? … didn’t work. Waste of time to watch. It gets two stars because of Jennifer’s & cast’s performance and the good costumes.

Rubbish

This was a complete waste of money and time. Inconsequential bull with wooden performances and weak storyline. Kicking myself for spending money. The mop is the most inspirational character!! Misleads by reference to Silver Linings - but even Cooper is a damp squib in this one!

It takes a while to get started but it gets really good at about a quarter of the way through with great acting from Jennifer Lawrence
