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

David Denby
New Yorker

Everything in this movie, written by Aline Brosh McKenna and directed by Roger Michell, seems way off.

Scott Tobias
AV Club

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.

The perky heroine played by Rachel McAdams.... is so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed she probably showers with caffeinated soap.

This production is a mess for many reasons, most of them having to do with its frantic efforts to be funny.

Has moments of sparkle, but the screenplay disappoints and the luminous Rachel McAdams overdoes it.

Director Roger Mitchell and the great cast bring so much energy and humour to Morning Glory that it becomes an enjoyable, if completely unaffecting, piece of escapist fluff - just like good breakfast television.

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.

A cut above the usual rom-com tripe while remaining several notches below the caliber of talent involved.

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.
