Movie "Joy" about Joy Mangano

Is anyone planning on seeing the movie "Joy" based on Joy Mangano?  They got an impressive cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Roberd DeNiro to name a few.

 

They're doing a story on her on 20/20 on ABC Friday.  Here's a good article that previews the story and talks about her 42,000 sq foot mansion.

I saw the previews in the theater last night. Jennifer Lawrence might be good in it, but from what I saw, she was not nearly as annoying as the real Joy is.; I just can't understand why her story was movie-worthy. I did see one of the scenes with QVC with the spin to win prize wheel they used to have. Not sure who Bradley Cooper is supposed to be playing. I might go see it, but I am going to wait for the reviews.

Interesting cast.  Includes Donna Mills and Robert DeNiro and his daughter, Drena.

NO, not even if someone paid for my ticket.

Absolutely not, though the cast sounds impressive, no interest in this woman's 'story'.

I won't embarass myself by naming the last movie I saw in a theatre but when this comes to Amazon I will definitely watch it if for no other reason than to see the behind the camera scenes at QVC and wonder who the host is modeled after . . . Smiley Happy

I plan on seeing it.  


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?
