Inspiring but uneven drama about Miracle Mop inventor.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Joy is a drama based on the real-life Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence), inventor of the Miracle Mop. There are lots of highs and lows in her story -- including a dysfunctional family, financial insecurity, and a deep desire to fulfill dreams deferred -- which makes it a better fit for older viewers. But Joy is an inspiring person, and the content itself isn't too edgy; there's some swearing (mostly on the milder side, but there's one "f--k"), arguing, drinking (usually socially), kissing, and innuendo -- and, of course, a heavy emphasis on the best-selling Miracle Mop product. A dream sequence includes a kidnapping.
