This talented cast is stuck in a low-rent script that is just as dimwitted as the daytime talk show at the center of the film.

The producers and writers missed a chance either to make the case for television news or to bid it a fond farewell. To ignore such an obvious elephant in the room seemed odd.

I saw Broadcast News twenty-three years ago and I remember every word. I saw Morning Glory last week, but I don't think it'll have the same impact. Fun, but ultimately forgettable.

Morning Glory can't find its footing between romantic comedy... and biting workplace comedy.
June 11, 2011
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.

At worst, it may put you to sleep.

[A] deeply dislikable comedy of embarrassment...
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.
January 24, 2011
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.

Harrison Ford gives an under-par performance in this disappointing TV-studio-set romantic comedy.
January 20, 2011
Morning Glory stays firmly on the launchpad, doing increasingly desperate run-ups, but collapsing in a gawky heap whenever it tries to take off.
January 20, 2011
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.
January 20, 2011
A vehicle for an effortless performer, but void of conviction.
January 11, 2011
Morning Glory is as insubstantial as the telly it tries to make fun of.
December 27, 2010
A forgettable trifle about a struggling breakfast TV show.
December 21, 2010
Ford and Keaton crackle and snap in TV satire.
