Very funny and feel-good film. Great actors with good chemistry, especially Rachel McAdams, even though the love story is not the main story line. Highly recommendable for a lazy afternoon.

"Morning Glory" was an entertaining ,funny film with an excellent cast who all had a great chemistry with one another. Rachel McAdams played the leading role as the executive producer of "Daybreak", a struggling morning tv programme which she is hired to overhaul and to boost its ratings. She hires Harrison Ford who plays a dour, serious news reporter who is reluctant to take on a more chatty, trivial minded persona in his new co-anchor role on the show. Can he help increase the show's ratings along with a host of new gimmicky ideas that McAdams kooky, energetic , workaholic producer brings to the show ? The film is warm and amusing and for once a career obsessed young woman in a movie is actually likeable. I found the scenes with poor Ernie the weatherman to be particularly funny.

This was an enjoyable and amusing film with an excellent cast and a decent storyline. Unlike many romatic comedy's that are made it wasn't a candy floss I will never want to see this again movie. Rachel McAdams was delightful, while Harrison Ford & Diane Keaton gave memorable performances.

Ordered this film ages ago and only just got around to watching it. I like Rachel McAdams and she played a good role here as the ditzy producer of a failing Morning TV show.

I wouldn't call this a romantic comedy. There is a sort of 'romance' but it doesn't play a huge part and was a bit lacking. The rest of the film is good. Harrison Ford plays a good part and I found him amusing. I've never watched him in a comedy role before. Diane Keaton I find plays a similar part in most of her roles and so yes she was good but nothing extroadinary but she is always good at comedy.

It was an enjoyable watch. Recommended.

Morning Glory is a 2010 American comedy film directed by Roger Michell, written by Aline Brosh McKenna and produced by J. J. Abrams and Bryan Burk.[3] It stars Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, and Diane Keaton, with Patrick Wilson, John Pankow and Jeff Goldblum appearing in supporting roles. The plot revolves around young and devoted morning television producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) who gets hired as an executive producer on the long-running morning show DayBreak at a once-prominent but currently failing station in New York City. Eager to keep the show on air, she contracts a former news journalist and anchor (Ford) who disapproves of co-hosting a show that does not deal with real news stories.

After some delays, the film was released in the United States on November 10, 2010, and abroad in 2011. This marks the first time that Bad Robot Productions has produced a comedy film. It received mixed reviews and had moderate success at a box office grossing $60 million worldwide.[4] The theme song of the film is "Strip Me" by Natasha Bedingfield.

Aspiring news producer Becky Fuller has dreamed since childhood of working for the Today show, but her dedication to her career is off-putting to potential suitors. After being laid off from her job at the local Good Morning New Jersey, her mother advises her to give up her dream before it becomes an embarrassment. However, Becky perseveres, sending many different résumés out. She finally receives a call from IBS, which is looking for a producer on its struggling national morning show, DayBreak.

After a discouraging job interview with Jerry Barnes, who dismisses both her and DayBreak as also-rans, Becky bumps into one of her heroes, veteran television journalist Mike Pomeroy in an elevator.

Rachel McAdams stars as the energetic Becky, who works too many hours, with workaholic tendencies in a TV studio. Desperate for a job, she leaps at the chance of directing a morning show which has been struggling in the ratings…

Diane Keaton is brilliant as a loyal but anchor of the show, while Harrison Ford is a wonderfully grumpy curmudgeon who gradually finds himself thawing despite himself. A totally different role from his usual ones, and he shows himself a fine actor in the process.

It’s all slightly predictable, I suppose; Becky naturally falls in love but makes a hash of it at first; she tries some experiments which have mixed results. There are some humorous situations although I would not call this a ‘comedy’ as such; the busy newsroom filled with equipment went right over my head, but appealed to my husband, who has worked in similar situations.

It's supposedly a rom-com, but the romance part is not a huge part of the plot. I wish the couple hadn’t been seen going to bed together, even though it was tastefully done with no nudity or anything explicit. There’s some bad language, too; I would have rated this as 15 rather than 12. I suggest parents check the advisories at the iMDB website before watching this with young teens, although many will no doubt have seen far worse.

That aside, we thought this film was extremely well done, and it made an enjoyable evening’s entertainment for three of us, including our twenty-something son. The characters are nicely eccentric, and it’s a feel-good kind of story overall. Definitely recommended to adults and older teens who like this kind of thing, particularly to anyone who has worked in the television industry.

The movie length is 103 minutes, and there are subtitles available in a few European languages. No extras, although there’s the option to turn on a commentary (in English).
