Common Sense Note

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.

Sexual Content

Some kissing and innuendo.

Violence

A woman cuts her hands on broken glass; her palms are shown bloodied. A couple insults each other and argues loudly in front of their grown child and young grandchildren. In a dream sequence, a woman is chloroformed and kidnapped. Joy goes to an outdoor shooting range to release stress; a TV soap opera character also holds a gun.

Language

Mostly on the milder side ("ass," and such), but there's one use of "f--k." A woman gives someone the finger.

Social Behavior

If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again -- and don't let anyone take away your dreams.

Consumerism

Joy's own Miracle Mop product is featured prominently (as expected); other brands/labels seen include QVC, HSN, K-Mart, Mercedes Benz, Campbell's soup, Polo by Ralph Lauren, Fox TV, and Embassy Suites.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking.
