Morning Glory (2010)
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.

Worst Harrison's movie ever ? (rental)---Well, this movie was such awful that before writing this review, I checked between for the age gap between Harrison and Al Pacino (the older for 2 years). I did that because it's striking how their evolution are totally opposite. Decades ago, it was rather Harrison who was cool, compassionate while Al was cold, heartless. Today, far later in their career, Al keeps getting sweet and warmly whereas Harrison becomes totally grumpy! Here, the hero of my childhood is just despicable from start to finish and to make things worse, the story is totally a failure. We have to wait one hour to see actually Harrisson doing his first morning show which is however the main subject here and also that's left only 40 minutes to tell something! But Harrison isn't the only culprit here! If you take the sexy and energetic MacAdams, here she just can't give something emotional. So, it's long, it's dull, it's not funny and the prestigious cast can't save anything! If it's not the definition of a stinker, I don't know how to tell it other way!
Not such a bad STORY after all !---Morning Glory begins on a promising note and makes you want to sit back and look forward to what might happen next in the movie..and it does not disappoint. It is a good movie that does justice to the role of the quintessential,career oriented urban women today.Rachel McAdams,many will agree, is very pleasing to the eye and looks great on-screen.She plays her part convincingly.I am a new fan!With a few quirks ,smart lyrics,a few unexpected hilarious moments and decent cinematography,it makes for an entertaining watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon with your friends,spouse or even office colleagues,come to that! I say,go for it! Absolutely worth watching.
Shallow And Predictable---I can understand when a single big name actor signs on to a dreadful movie for the sake of a paycheque. Why not? I do wonder, though, when three veteran and fairly big name actors do it. Harrison Ford? Diane Keaton? Jeff Goldblum? OK. I'm not huge fans of any of them and I've had mixed reactions to their work over the years, but I can't deny that they're pretty big names - and they signed on for this. Did they not read the script beforehand and realize how pathetic this was?Rachel McAdams is the star of this as Becky Fuller, a young producer who gets a job putting out the worst morning show in the country on the fictional IBS network. Her challenge? Get the ratings up or the show is finished - and her along with it. She hires big name anchorman Mike Pomeroy (Ford) to give the show a degree of credibility (gravitas, as it's referred to at one point) only to find that he's a shallow and egotistical twit who won't do any of the things needed to make morning television work, and who makes his attitude toward the show and his co- workers quite clear. Keaton is his co-anchor, and Goldblum is head of the network's news department.There's some humour in this - mostly provided by Ford, although at times I couldn't figure out if his deadpan approach and rather bored look throughout was his take on the character or his take on the movie as a whole. Goldblum's part wasn't a big one, but Keaton shared a bit in some of the humour with Ford, especially when the two took to insulting each other on the air, which did make me smile a little bit. But a bit of humour really doesn't save this. McAdams seemed to struggle valiantly with the role and attempted to inject a little bit of energy into it - which was desperately needed, because this is simply not an energetic movie. Like Pomeroy, it's shallow, it's dull and it's predictable. It's also rather hard to believe that in the space of just a few weeks, Becky goes from being fired as the producer of a local morning show, to being hired as producer of a network morning show to being offered a job with the Today Show. The writers also decided - for no apparent reason, except that it's apparently considered necessary in this kind of movie - to throw in a rather poorly developed romance for her which seemed to accomplish little except allowing her to shoot a couple of scenes in her underwear. Yeah. She's pretty cute. But that's certainly not enough to save this.This truly isn't worth the effort of watching. (2/10)
The whole movie was too loud too fast, watching Rachel McAdams acting out of her zone was painful.---MORNING GLORY – TRASH IT ( D ) Never imagine a day will come when I have to call Rachel McAdams's movie "Dreadful", but the day has come because Morning Glory was Dreadful. Morning Glory disappoints in story, maybe the makers were trying to bring Tina Fey's 30 Rock on Cellulite. Whatever they were thinking it fell flat. With atrocious loud performances, it was completely unbearable. I won't blame the actors, because they have proved themselves several times. It's all directors' fault to choose such story and have such terrible production value. The whole movie was too loud too fast, watching Rachel McAdams acting out of her zone was painful. It seemed she drank 3-4 red bull before filming every scene. She literally over doze every scene. Patrick Wilson is alright, he never got much chance anyway besides looking charming. As always recently, Dianne Keaton has over done it. Harrison Ford was good & rigid. Overall, it's too loud too fast to care about. Trash it!
Don't waste your time like I did.---If you are older than 16 and have a brain, save your money. I went based on the good reviews I saw here and I guess I won't do that again. There was little that was funny, less that was intelligent, and nothing truly romantic. Someone wrote the movie was put out by the same team that did "The Devil Wears Prada," a great, fun, original movie based on a book of the same. That explained a lot about this movie, but it was a poor substitute for the original.Rachel MacAdam seemed like an Anne Hathaway look-a-like, with the same hairdo, the same hysterical, career driven personality as Hathaway had in Prada. She RAN everywhere, her job being the only important thing in her life. Harrison Ford played a curmudgeon perfectly, and not very likably. Diane Keaton played Diane Keaton,seemingly the only role she knows how to play. The solution worked out by the MacAdam character to keep the TV show afloat typified modern TV at it's worst. I was embarrassed at it's inanity. Curmudgeon Ford truly had the right answers, but that didn't win TV points so he ends up going along with everyone else. Sorry. I like intelligence in a movie, also class and creativity. This was none of those things. Even the ending makes "Cinderella" a documentary by comparison. It was sweet, but totally unreal.
