See this if you have nothing else to do.....
24 December 2000 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This film was the first of three sequels relating to the trilogy. Not since the days of Sylvia Kristel or Laura Gemser for that manner has there been a movie that has been at least extremely odd for its form over the substance style of eroticism and "Joy" is no exception to the rule or to the latter for that manner.

The film revolves around the sexual adventures of a supermodel(Claudia Udy) and her search for the perfect man which leads her on a course of travels around the earth. The acting is okay,but bland at times,but its camera work that does all the work. The film has been seen only once in America(which is was last shown on Cinemax),but you'll need to see it on video(if they have it on the shelves) if you have nothing else to do.

The story concludes even more with "Joy:Chapter II",which doesn't have the firepower of the original but it has more sex if you're into that sort of stuff. The sequel has our heroine finding the perfect man,only to find out that she has been set up,and so or hero(Claudia Udy)is kidnapped and is brought to exotic land only that she escapes and is befriended by a young lady named Joanna. Not only the two become good friends at least,but they experience their first sexual encounter on a train(and probably the best scene in which these two are in a REAL hot girl/girl love fest and its only in the Unrated version which is very hard to find in some video chains). However,the plot is foggy,but at the end Joy returns to Paris to find her true love(which is the perfect man),or so it seems.

The conclusion in "Joy:Chapter III" is not like the other two,but this one is absolutely horrible from the beginning...avoid at all costs! In this one, Claudia Udy only has a small part in this and exits right out,and in this one Joy travels to Japan were she finds all sorts of sexual adventures,and this one was the worst and the last of the series.

In my honest opinion,the first one shines out from them all.
