Morning Glory

Release date: 17 December 2010 (Dubai International Film Festival)

The marriage of Diane Keaton (as morning newshow host Colleen Peck) and Harrison Ford (as hardnews anchorman Mike Pomeroy) can't ever be wrong and Morning Glory is no exception. Keaton is the longtime host who must adapt to Ford's arrival on set as a crummondoey, serious political news hack with little patience for 'lite' news. The clash of egos is hilarious. Add into the mixture the young producer charged with making these two work together, Becky (Rachel MacAdams), her love interest Adam (Patrick Wilson) and the station's bigwig President, Jerry (a very good Jeff Goldblum) and you will find yourself laughing out loud. Roger Mitchell directs this silliness in the usual Hollywood fashion. Morning Glory works despite this and delivers enough humour, romance, and heart to make watching this newscast worth it. 

My rating 7 out of 10.
