The picture starts to fall in love with its subject -- head- over-heels in love, until the acid drains from the wit and there's nothing left but sentimental ooze.

It's all slick, fizzy fun. But the film's fighting spirit gets snatched.

Watching The Paper got me in touch all over again with how good it feels to work at the top of your form, on a story you believe in, on deadline.

Thanks to a caffeinated cast and hyperactive script, director Ron Howard delivers The Paper with a bang.

A crowd pleaser, and, regardless of any viewer's experience (or lack thereof) with the behind-the-scenes wrangling that goes on in newspaper offices, the story is affable and entertaining.
