Among the changes that David O. Russell made to the original biographical story of Joy Mangano that was featured in Annie Mumolo's script was adding Joy's half-sister, Peggy, who is entirely fictional. Terry is a composite of several people in Joy Mangano's life. In real life, Joy's ex-husband, Tony Miranne, was a fellow business student and former classmate at Pace University, not a Venezuelan singer. Russell has stated several times that he does not consider his film to be a biographical film of Mangano, as it was originally intended to be, when Mumolo wrote her script, which was later heavily changed by Russell.

What stupid idiot ever thought to name this movie Joy? What a total piece of crap. So depressing throughout. Instead of a movie like Rudy we have a movie showing the very worst of human nature. DON'T GO SEE THIS ROTTEN MOVIE!
