A new romantic comedy set in the hilarious and dysfunctional world of morning television. When hard-working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news program, her career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at "Daybreak" (the last-place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford). Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts, let alone work with his new co-host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), a… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Everything in this movie, written by Aline Brosh McKenna and directed by Roger Michell, seems way off."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"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."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"It's hard not to have fun at this delightful comedy which features strong performances from McAdams, Ford and Keaton."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"It's entirely appropriate that Morning Glory ultimately turns into a celebration of quaffable, formulaic fluff."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"Ford is a snarling cartoon version of his grim political thriller self played for laughs. And McAdams is no Mary Tyler Moore but she's just this side of being that appealing."
‑ Dave White,
"This production is a mess for many reasons, most of them having to do with its frantic efforts to be funny."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Has moments of sparkle, but the screenplay disappoints and the luminous Rachel McAdams overdoes it."
‑ Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"Watching McAdams juggle all the pieces provides much of the laughs, but both Keaton and Ford get some positively hilarious traction as Colleen and Mike clash on the air and compete for the spotlight."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"At worst, it may put you to sleep."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Morning Glory is a tart, terrific comedy that gives Harrison Ford his best and funniest role in years."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"McAdams is typically effervescent here, but she can't rescue this weak comedy."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Behind the frivolity of this rom-com also lurks a serious theme about the importance of proper old-school journalism."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"You don't watch stuff like Morning Glory for intelligent commentary on modern life and everyone involved is aware of it ... while there's been good, sometimes funny drama about the collision of news and entertainment never has it been so pointless."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Sit-com style zany comedy that won't exactly change your life, but has the odd good joke and proves Rachel McAdams well capable of carrying a film, even opposite Harrison Ford and Diana Keaton."
