Rachel McAdams, a once fetching actress, runs about as if "Fetch!" is the only cry coming from behind the camera. Fetch the joke; fetch the funny line-reading. Wave your arms about.

A vehicle for an effortless performer, but void of conviction.

Michell's seamless, steady direction lets McAdams's energy shine through and allows Ford and his fellow news anchor Diane Keaton to craft beautifully timed comedic performances...
| Original Score: 3/5

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Overacting is matched by plastic storytelling
