Morning Glory (2010)



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

Critic Reviews for Morning Glory

All Critics (173) | Top Critics (44)

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

Philadelphia Weekly

It's hard not to have fun at this delightful comedy which features strong performances from McAdams, Ford and Keaton.

Big Hollywood

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.

American Profile

Behind the frivolity of this rom-com also lurks a serious theme about the importance of proper old-school journalism.

Digital Spy

It's entirely appropriate that Morning Glory ultimately turns into a celebration of quaffable, formulaic fluff.

Audience Reviews for Morning Glory


Average rom-com. Enjoyable because of Harrison Ford.

Super Reviewer

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 Devil Wears Prada-esque), its feuding anchor dynamic (a watered-down Anchorman) and its cringe-worthy love scenes, all that's left is the cloying happy ending. There is a very good movie hidden in here somewhere, but it's just too formulaic and it grates by the end.

Super Reviewer

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 disappointed.
