The perky heroine played by Rachel McAdams.... is so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed she probably showers with caffeinated soap.

Director Roger Mitchell and the great cast bring so much energy and humour to Morning Glory that it becomes an enjoyable, if completely unaffecting, piece of escapist fluff - just like good breakfast television.

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

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

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.

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

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

You don't watch stuff like Morning Glory for intelligent commentary on modern life and everyone involved is aware of it ... while there's been good, sometimes funny drama about the collision of news and entertainment never has it been so pointless.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Ford is a snarling cartoon version of his grim political thriller self played for laughs. And McAdams is no Mary Tyler Moore but she's just this side of being that appealing.

At worst, it may put you to sleep.

January 26, 2011
Sit-com style zany comedy that won't exactly change your life, but has the odd good joke and proves Rachel McAdams well capable of carrying a film, even opposite Harrison Ford and Diana Keaton.

[A] deeply dislikable comedy of embarrassment...
Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express (UK)
January 24, 2011
A bizarre celebration of dumbing down that fails to work as satire, comedy or romance. The characters are one-note and a good cast is wasted.

Basically a self-serving justification for the prominence of fluffy entertainment over sharply written and intelligently crafted stories.

Presumably, we are meant to find this cute, rather than intensely depressing.
David Edwards
Daily Mirror (UK)
January 21, 2011
A film that ambles along agreeably and features fine performances from co-stars Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams.

Harrison Ford gives an under-par performance in this disappointing TV-studio-set romantic comedy.

Morning Glory stays firmly on the launchpad, doing increasingly desperate run-ups, but collapsing in a gawky heap whenever it tries to take off.

Morning Glory would have been more amusing if it wasn't so contrived. And if Harrison Ford hadn't become so entrenched in playing the grumpy old man he was in Extraordinary Measures last year.
