McAdams Shines in Breezy,Sunny "Morning Glory"
Mary from Limerick, 30 Aug 2011
The decidedly adorable Rachel McAdams plays Becky Fuller, a frantic can-do television producer who dreams of producing the prestigious Today show. She is wholly consumed by her thankless job at her local morning show in New Jersey and when her boss calls her to his office, she assumes it is for the big promotion she has been toiling away for. Instead, poor Becky gets fired for cost-cutting reasons. She is soon offered the impossible job of righting the sinking ship that is Day Break, the fourth ranked national morning show “behind Today, Good Morning America and whatever they have on CBS” as her new boss (Jeff Goldblum) puts it. After sacking her male presenter, Becky boldly decides to team up her only remaining anchor (Diane Keaton) with the Pullitzer-winning, grumpy news anchor Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford). She coerces him into the job by enforcing a clause in his contract which causes things to go sour from the start.
A Terrible Waste of an Evening

Firstly there's no story. Harrison Ford is going through the motions and has no interest in the film. Rachel McAdams is a terrific actress and one to watch for in the future but this film comes to life in the last 10 minutes. Diane Keaton is very good but is given nothing to do. Don't bother getting this out.

This is a light-hearted fun comedy to watch. Ford is excellent as always. There is great chemistry between all the characters and you can't fault it. Very good entertaining movie.

This was just an average film, didnt really like Harrison ford's character and Rachale McAdams was like the ever ready bunny, bouncing around all the time, though it was watchable
