January 26, 2011
[A] deeply dislikable comedy of embarrassment...
January 20, 2011
Harrison Ford gives an under-par performance in this disappointing TV-studio-set romantic comedy.
January 20, 2011
A vehicle for an effortless performer, but void of conviction.
January 8, 2011
A breezy, formulaic souffle of a comedy.
January 3, 2011
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.
November 22, 2010
Everything in this movie, written by Aline Brosh McKenna and directed by Roger Michell, seems way off.
November 11, 2010
This production is a mess for many reasons, most of them having to do with its frantic efforts to be funny.
November 11, 2010
Morning Glory is a tart, terrific comedy that gives Harrison Ford his best and funniest role in years.
November 11, 2010
The message of Morning Glory -- that austere TV journalists could stand to lighten up a bit -- may be dubious, but Michell and his cast sell it persuasively.
November 11, 2010
Has moments of sparkle, but the screenplay disappoints and the luminous Rachel McAdams overdoes it.
November 11, 2010
McAdams is typically effervescent here, but she can't rescue this weak comedy.
November 11, 2010
Morning Glory isn't terrible. It has a lot of craft, a lot of star power, and a fair number of laughs. What irks me is that the filmmakers settle for so little.
November 10, 2010
[McAdams's] Adorability Quotient is off the charts. If being ingratiating is a crime, she'd be shot at sunrise. But this good nature doesn't seem forced.
November 10, 2010
It plods along.
November 10, 2010
An old-fashioned comedy that respects brains, ambition and, as McAdams' anchor dubs, her "repellent moxie."
November 10, 2010
Morning Glory isn't targeting the dumbing down of TV news. It's pandering to the audience that craves the dumbness
November 10, 2010
Everyone involved here is operating well below his or her skill level.
November 10, 2010
It is what it's about - kissing frogs for ratings, entertainment that panders to the lowest common denominator.
November 10, 2010
This charmless movie thinks it can soft-sell its date-night love story and its media meta-jabs without people feeling they've been bamboozled on either count. To which we can only say good night, and good luck.
November 10, 2010
[A] generally woeful comedy.
