It's worth getting up early for...which is more than you can say for most breakfast TV.

Enjoyably fluffy, frequently amusing comedy with a superb supporting cast and a terrific lead performance from Rachel McAdams.

Empire Magazine

Every one of its cues might be tele-prompted, but this is an assured, likable comedy.

News of the World

Rachel McAdams gives a star-making performance - mainly cos she plays Becky as a proper, likeable human being and not a chick-flick-standard, high-heel-tripping, Sandra Bullock-faced idiot.

Morning Glory is as insubstantial as the telly it tries to make fun of.

Fan The Fire

Roger Michell's film is a straight forward romantic comedy, refreshingly strong on the latter and sparing with the former.

Morning Glory is fluffy alright, but it's also delicious.

The Age (Australia)

A breezy, formulaic souffle of a comedy.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Morning Glory is that rarest of treats, an American comedy which is actually funny thanks to a witty script and an energetic lead performance by Rachel McAdams.

ABC Radio Brisbane

Rachel McAdams proves that she can carry a romantic comedy. Her talkative, bubbly personality will win the hearts of many in the audience.

Amongst the big name cast, it's Rachel McAdams that shines in this rom-com with substance.

Shadows on the Wall

snappy script helps make this rather goofy comedy much more enjoyable than it should be. And it also helps that the film is extremely well-cast

Sandra Hall
Sydney Morning Herald

The film is at its best in its first half when Michell is letting us in on the ceremonies, rituals and hierarchical conceits that govern breakfast television.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

While it comes up short in the warmth and depth department, it is notable for a modest comeback of sorts for Harrison Ford.

Ford and Keaton crackle and snap in TV satire.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

Becky is cute, entirely too conversational and consumed by her career. And, as portrayed by the equally adorable Rachel McAdams in 'Morning Glory,' she is funny, sweet and endearing.

David Stratton
At the Movies (Australia)

Rachel McAdams just seizes this film and goes with it and tends to leave everybody else in her wake a little bit because she's such a force -- such a potent force.
