Morning Glory

A comedy, from the director of Notting Hill and writer of The Devil Wears Prada, about hard-working TV producer Becky (Rachel McAdams) who lands the position with 'Daybreak' (the worst-rating national morning news show). She tries to revitalise the show by bringing on cantankerous, old-school TV anchor: Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford).

Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather and fashion or get along work with co-host, Colleen (Diane Keaton). Becky finds herself with her hands full.

A genially midrange if overlong romantic comedy.

So it's into the heady world of breakfast television we go with this frothy light comedy piece from the director of Notting Hill.

Like a low-rent breakfast TV presenter, Michell’s latest has a sunny disposition but little behind the eyes. Ford is fine, but it may leave you as irascible as his old-timer.

A passably amusing romantic comedy with a laugh-strewn script that's almost undone by the hard sell of an enterprise that drills every emotional beat into your head.

A tart, terrific comedy that gives Harrison Ford his best and funniest role in years.

Comedies open every week. This is the kind I like best. It grows from human nature and is about how people do their jobs and live their lives.

Rachel McAdams gives the kind of performance we go to the movies for. The rest of the film isn't always up to her level, but it does provide genial entertainment until it runs out of steam.

It merely recycles 1987's "Broadcast News" with only a single reference to YouTube.

Every one of its cues might be tele-prompted, but this is an assured, likable comedy. Ford is as good as he’s been in ages, but the stand-out is McAdams. If there were any justice, the movie would send her stellar.
