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.

I got this in a Blu-Ray deal. I knew nothing about it but as Harrison Ford usually delivers thought I'd go for it.
It pleasantly surprised me. Rachel McAdams character as a workaholic worked very well. It's nicely fleshed out enough to not be a 2D person, but you feel for what she's trying to achieve though you don't really pick up on why she has this driving force in her.
Ford is superb, you want to just grab him and give him a shake to wake up to what his personality is doing to all around him.
Nice to see Jeff Goldblum again as well as her boss, hoping she makes a success but up against a corporation that has other ideas.
The boyfriend bit is the most disjointed and ineffectual, but it does add a nice diversion from the TV show and helps you feel her frustration.
Diane Keaton also shines in this, again with a nicely fleshed out character that has more than 1 side.
It was also nice to have some genuinely laugh out loud comedy. Me and my son were in tears at the exploits of the weather man.
A very nice surprise of a film.

This is a halarious film where a new kid on the block (Rachel Adams) is trying to make it in the breakfast TV world. She has already been given the push from one network because her ideas are too radical. She then manages to land another breakfast TV job and works with an old hand (Diane Keaton). But still the ratings drop and her new job is on the line. She has this brainwave to call in a grumpy old TV hand (Harrison Ford) to boost the show and her survival.
Talk about a prima donna -he does not want to play ball with this young kid -and he and Keaton just do not get along -too much past history!
Sounds like a recipe for the EXIT door? This film is hilarious and the interplay between these three actors + Mr Goldbloome from time to time is excellent! You will enjoy it!

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.
