Oh, Joy
25 October 2003 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

Not joy the abstract noun, as in happiness, but oh, Joy Smithers, what misguided careers advisor ever told you that acting was the job for you? The script has a few good ideas, but a lot of bad lines and some really embarrassing ones. The cast tries hard to cope with it. Miranda Otto stands out as the most competent actor, and Joy stands out as someone you might use in the background of a toothpaste ad.
