Consensus: It's lifted by affable performances from its impeccable cast, and it's often charming -- but Morning Glory is also inconsistent and derivative.

The message of Morning Glory -- that austere TV journalists could stand to lighten up a bit -- may be dubious, but Michell and his cast sell it persuasively.

It's hard not to have fun at this delightful comedy which features strong performances from McAdams, Ford and Keaton.

Morning Glory is a tart, terrific comedy that gives Harrison Ford his best and funniest role in years.

McAdams is typically effervescent here, but she can't rescue this weak comedy.

Behind the frivolity of this rom-com also lurks a serious theme about the importance of proper old-school journalism.

Average rom-com. Enjoyable because of Harrison Ford.

I liked it, didn't love it. One of the better not-totally-generic-but-still-totally predictable rom-com in recent years.

Rachel McAdams shines as the frazzled, determined and adorable up-and-coming TV producer, but the movie just doesn't pay her back. Between its plot (The… More

Not an out and out entertainer, this one's a watchable comedy.

In the end, it's a rom com. You want it to be about an empowered young woman working her way up the ladder to professional success. You will be… More

Got pretty boring pretty fast. Harrison Ford is pretty annoying.
