Becky and I went to see the new flick Morning Glory on Friday night at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Fandango website at Morning Glory describes the movie as follows:
“‘Newly hired as a producer on a national morning-news program called “Daybreak,” Becky Fuller (Rachel McAdams) decides to revitalize the low-rated show by bringing in legendary anchorman Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford) . Pomeroy, however, refuses to do puff pieces like celebrity gossip and fashion, and clashes with his co-host (Diane Keaton) . Meanwhile, Becky’s romance with a colleague begins to unravel, leaving her struggling to save her relationship, her job and “Daybreak” itself…”
Morning Glory is a cute and entertaining film about a woman who has a dream, played by Rachel McAdams of being on the Today Show since she was a child. She’s a work-a-holic and has always believed that by outworking everyone she would get ahead, but the Corporate guys are concerned about one thing – The Bottom Line. If she can’t turn this struggling television show around she’s going to be out on the street again.
She gets the break of her life by getting to be the Producer of a dying morning television show called DayBreak on a major network and has a chance to prove herself. That is easier said than done though because there are some crazy personalities involved in creating a television show.
One of these people is a character played by Harrison Ford, who is a bit like Dan Rather, as a former professional news anchor. The last thing he wants to do is drop down to the pathetic level of entertainment television, but he doesn’t have many options any longer. When you add in Diane Keaton’s character, who is his co-host that loves her job, a former Beauty Queen, but can’t stand the people she works with, it’s a pretty funny movie.
The acting in this movie is good as you might expect. The story is enjoyable. It’s not an Oscar contender, but it’s a good film that we found entertaining.
