Desperate to get a job, she finally gets an interview with Jerry (Jeff Goldblum) – who is desperate to hire a producer for the struggling show “Daybreak”. Becky accepts the job and it proves to be more difficult than even she might be able to handle. She has to fire the sexist co-host, then try to convince egotistical news reporter, Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), to take the job, and then try and get him to actually do the job, properly. And she has to do this while falling for handsome Adam (Patrick Wilson), and trying to save the show from plummeting ratings. Will Becky be able to hold on to her dream job and her sanity?
Plot: A young and devoted morning television producer is hired as an executive producer on a long-running morning show at a once-prominent but currently failing station in New York City. Eager to keep the show on air, she recruits a former news journalist and anchor who disapproves of co-hosting a show that does not deal with real news stories.

Morning Glory – refreshingly sweet
Rachel McAdams leads the way in this surprisingly refreshing flick as the workaholic television show producer, Becky, who lands the job of organizing “the worst morning show ever”. She only has a short time to save the show’s plummeting ratings, and in doing so must battle with low worker morale, conceited anchors, poor working conditions, as well as her own inadequacy in dealing with guy-problems. Desperate for a change, she recruits the legendary newscaster Mike Pomeroy, played by Harrison Ford, who is less than willing to cover any story he does not consider “worthy of his reputation”.
The film brings not just a comic story of working with grumpy people, but the beautiful emotional tale of a girl who realizes her dream of being a television producer and, by pulling everyone together against the odds, creates a family in the process. But where the story is rather run-of-the-mill, the chemistry between the impressive cast is the movie’s redeeming quality. Across the board, acting was fantastic, and in all honesty the movie owes its success to McAdams and Ford. Rachel McAdams should be commended for her frustrated role as Becky, and has proved that she has much more to offer than a just pretty face. Harrison Ford, perhaps the true star of the show, fully embraced the character of Pomeroy did a wonderfully fantastic job being grumpy, conceited, and an all-around “asshole” in one of his best roles as of late.
Morning Glory is a nice tale that will leave you with a sweet taste in your mouth. Combined with some real solid acting, this is not a movie you’ll regret checking out!
Diane Keaton Kisses a Frog
Rachel McAdams has been at the summit of the romance genre since her performance in “The Notebook” in 2004. However, her acting talents go far beyond this lovey dovey genre placing her in movies like “Sherlock Holmes” in 2009. Most of her past films reach out to the audience itself in order to connect to them, however her newest film is a little harder to connect to and read. Instead it is the viewer’s job to try and get something out of it. This is attributed to the film’s very slow start that leads to a very funny core and an inspirational reward at the end. However, the entire film is very slowly paced. “So what’s the story?” “Morning glory” begins showing Rachel McAdams’s character Becky Fuller attempting to be on a date with a man, while she is constantly connected to her work cell phone. And yep you guessed it the date doesn’t go very well. Becky is a workaholic TV producer who is fired from her producing job at her local low budget early morning news program. Consequently, she feels like she has lost everything and is caught in a downward spiral with no one but her job ready to pick her up. She is finally hired to produce the failing second-rate early morning show Day Break on the network IBS. In order to save the show Becky teams up with her famous yet washed up news anchor hero Mike Pomeroy (played by Harrison Ford) and ditsy Colleen Peck (played by Diane Keaton) as they go on a journey to self-discovery. Along the way Becky meets a man named Adam Bennett played by Patrick Wilson who he ultimately has to decide what is more important her job or her love life?
The film is best at its core bringing gut wrenching laughs by the dozens with its ridiculous morning show TV antics. Ranging from kissing a frog to skydiving everyone at Day Break are let loose by Becky, giving the film its best moments. Diane Keaton is in the center of these comedic moments as her ditsy news anchor character Colleen holds nothing back. Therefore, the actors are the most important part of this film. Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford create a peculiar father daughter chemistry as they portray the struggle of their characters to work with each other. Therefore, their different acting styles mesh very well. Rachel McAdams being one of the sweetest and most talented present day actresses is so absorbed in the part it is almost impossible to separate her from her character Becky. Harrison Ford’s performance differs a lot from his “Indiana Jones,” “Star Wars,” and “Blade Runner” roots as he fuses the washed up hard exterior of Mike Pomeroy with heart and soul.
The film suffers from the addition of extra characters and failing to fully develop their story and background. They are only relevant to one scene and do not have any impact on the film as a whole. Becky’s mother (Patti D. Arbanville) is one of these characters as she gives Becky her “I think you are throwing your life away speech” at the beginning of the film. This is followed by the appearance of other nothing characters that take away from the impact of the film. The film is also very slow to start and very slow to inspire until a little snippet at the end of the film. Yes it is inspiring, but it comes at a time a little too late instead of building gradually throughout the movie it hits you in the face just before the movie ends.
Everyone deserves to have his or her own glory in one-way or another. However, even though hard work is important everyone needs help at one time or another from close relationships and family. So that’s the story, “Morning Glory” is a very enjoyable story that you should see at least on DVD.
