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!*” *Peter Travers , Rolling Stone **Neil Rosen, NY1

Rachel McAdams is adorable & delightful in one of her cheekiest roles as the spirited & unsinkably optimistic Becky who has recently been let go due to budget cuts as Producer of a bare-bones A.M. Entertainment News program in New Jersey, which was her "stepping stone" to the major networks in New York City. This does not deter Becky who, in no time at all has an interview with a lesser-known, New York City A.M. Entertainment News Program. Jeff Goldblum plays the stressed-out Station Manager with a heart of gold; an executive struggling with a low budget, dispirited staff and a deadline to get things turned around quickly. Enter Becky with her winsome, plucky tenacity and incandescent, irresistible smile & she's hired as well as determined to succeed!!! Almost immediately she fires the Co-Anchor who is leeching any of the life out of the rest of the cast members & staff on the show. Now, all she needs do is fill the spot..and quickly! Diane Keaton is the competent former beauty queen remaining Co-Anchor, who has put in her time & doesn't foresee anything changing (as does the rest of the cast & crew), since they've all seen lesser Producers come & go. However, in her first move, Becky already has them all clapping & having feelings they haven't in a long time...hope!
Beckly is not only plucky, cheeky, cute & winsome, but also smart & impassioned! She finds that already on staff is a cantankerous curmudgeon of a former investigative news reporter who is waiting out time on his contract until he can leave, no longer being on any news program, played with excellent disdain by Harrison Ford, who reluctantly is pretty much forced into becoming Diane Keaton's Co-Anchor, which doesn't sit well with either of them...cue non-stop laughter! He pretty much refuses to go along with doing "entertainment" & persists in solely reading the news reports, until Diane Keaton finally erupts at him...on air!! At which point, viewership starts to increase & as that occurs, Becky becomes more & more creative with the show & is able to book better & more entertaining segments.
While Becky is succeeding in bringing ratings up, she's also creating an atmosphere of "family" among this "motley crew" of a staff, and trying to find some type of balance between career & a burgeoning love interest, played with handsome charm by Patrick Wilson. There is still the Harrison Ford Co-Anchor issue which Becky struggles with during private conversations with him, following Harrison Ford around & interrupting his private time, to try to get him onboard with the show, eventually endearing herself to him, too. It still doesn't turn him around, until he learns that Becky is being courted by "Good Morning America" & let's just say this culminates with a very cute, charming scene while Becky is involved in an interview with said morning news show, which will have you clapping!!
A disarming, exhilarating comedy that will leave you smiling an infectious Becky-smile! from beginning to end!!!!
So what you need to know about this film is that it moved me. In fact, it's been a long time since I teared up--not from sadness, but from satisfaction and a feeling of being known--watching a film. This one had me tearing up for several minutes before my eyes finally overflowed, and I laughed at the same moment. How possible is it that both Harrison Ford's character AND Rachel McAdams' character had me feeling like I could have been them, or they could have been me, yesterday, last week, five years from now? It's crazy, but true. The script is fine, it's funny. The story is somewhat predictable. But the reason people love predictable stories is because WE are predictable. We live out the same dramas over and over and over, and they mean something to us every single time. And Ford and McAdams--they make this movie what it is; their performances are that good. So, look, just...you know....just watch it. Let yourself get caught up in it. If you can't, well, then you can't; some people can't. It's fine. Everyone else, though--give it a shot. Have someone nearby to hug, maybe.
I never write reviews because I probably shouldn't, but I am still caught up in the high of loving this film so much, so I better submit before my better judgment kicks in.
There's not much thing happen in this movie and most of the actors except Rachel McAdams didn't showed enough talent I think because of the director's poor direction.
Harrison Ford tried so hard but he failed. His face was all tensed. How can he show his emotion anyway?
Diane Keaton and Jeff Goldblum were almost invisible, more Diane Keaton. I think it's all director and the writer's fault.(More director's fault)
The only one who shined was Rachel McAdams. She barely saved the movie.
Harrison Ford who is an anchorman even cooked to save the film but it was too late because that was not even a love letter. It was just a business letter. So the movie was crashed into the mountain.
