Product Overview

For Becky (Rachel McAdams, The Notebook), running a TV show in New York City was the big break she dreamed of…until star co-anchors Mike (Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones) and Colleen (Diane Keaton, Something’s Gotta Give) declare an all-out, on-air war. Making the show work with its cast of eccentric characters and outrageous story angles will take a major miracle, but Becky is ready to rise and outshine. From the writer of The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses, Morning Glory is a “Tart, terrific comedy*” that critics rave is, “Smart! Fresh! Brilliant! Heartwarming! Morning Glory has it all!

Editors Note
Note Produced by J.J. Abrams and written by Aline Brosh McKenna (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA), director Roger Michell's comedic glimpse into the cutthroat world of live television finds a desperate female news producer (Rachel McAdams) attempting to put out the flames between an anchorman (Harrison Ford) and his blustery but iconic cohost (Diane Keaton) in a last-ditch effort to save their failing morning show. Jeff Goldblum co-stars in the Paramount Pictures production.
Reviews
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "Ford is hilarious and brooding, deeply wrinkled and deeply intimidating....As his co-anchor, Diane Keaton kills it in her smaller role as the show's longtime host..." 11/10/2010
A.V. Club "Director Roger Michell keeps the action fleet and energetic, and much like his heroine, he wrangles a large ensemble into a coherent, highly functioning unit." -- Grade: B 11/11/2010
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "MORNING GLORY is a funny, entertainment to begin with, and then Rachel McAdams transforms it....She plays as lovable a lead as anyone since Amy Adams in JUNEBUG..." 11/10/2010
Los Angeles Times "In MORNING GLORY, Rachel McAdams gives the kind of performance we go to the movies for." 11/10/2010
Rolling Stone "[A] tart, terrific comedy that gives Harrison Ford his best and funniest role in years." 11/11/2010
Entertainment Weekly "McAdams, all googly doe eyes and nervous dimpled grins, infuses this go-getter with enough schoolgirl vivacity, enough spunk, to terrify Mary Tyler Moore. She's perfectly appealing..." 11/17/2010
Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] delivers grown-up laughs with fizz and charm to spare." 01/21/2011

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review "Morning Glory" is a funny entertainment to begin with, and then Rachel McAdams transforms it. And Harrison Ford transforms himself. She plays as lovable a lead as anyone since Amy Adams in "Junebug," and he bestirs himself from his frequent morosity and creates with gusto a TV newsman who is described as a great man, but the third worst person of all time. Diane Keaton is pitch-perfect a Colleen Peck, a morning TV host who can, and must, smile through everything...Comedies open every week. This is the kind I like best. It grows from human nature and is about how people do their jobs and live their lives. It is wisely not about a May-October romance between McAdams and Ford. It's more about their love for their work. It isn't deep, and it doesn't approach "Broadcast News" in its examination of the TV producer mentality, but it's the kind of sitcom you can get happily carried along with...What the movie has is charm and a light-footed smartness. In its version of story meetings and problems with talent, it's not a million miles away from what I've seen taking place. Morning news have a certain caffeinated jollity that's comforting. I sit in grumpy sleepiness and allow myself to be kidded out of it with the on-air "family" and the goofy weatherman. I don't expect hard news and investigative reporting. Pomeroy does. He expects it all the time, which is perhaps why he's sitting out the rest of its contract.
