Morning Glory is such a fun movie! Rachel McAdams stars as the optimistic, determined new producer at a low rated morning talk show. Diane Keaton is delightful as the co-anchor who is jaded by the business yet up for a challenge. And Harrison Ford is the grumpy former newsman who is roped into the other co-anchor position that he feels is beneath him.
Lots of laughs, and warm fuzzies – I love this kind of movie where you can just sit back and enjoy the performances, the writing, the overall story. Very satisfying.
When hard-working TV producer Becky Fuller is fired from a local news program, her career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at "Daybreak" (the last-place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy. Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts – let alone work with his new co-host, Colleen Peck, a former beauty queen and longtime morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning "news." As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then on the air, Becky's blossoming love affair with fellow producer, Adam Bennett begins to unravel – and soon Becky is struggling to save her relationship, her reputation, her job and ultimately, the show itself.
