Honestly, I wasn't expecting much when I rented this film and I didn't get much out of it either. It had strong potential to bring forth several themes of woman empowerment and how the internet and social networking had influenced the news media but it misses on everything. It instead goes into the stereotypical story of a woman whose career is her life and her interactions with the 'old guard' played by Harrison Ford. It is just downright predictable and the narrative falls flat with very hollow characters.

Still a definite crowd-pleaser, Rachel McAdams made it a bearable watch and it had some decent moments with its formidable cast. But overall, not worth the purchase and better suited as a rental.

[2 out of 5 Stars]

I still have yet to see this, ever since I heard of this film I have been interested in seeing it I have always had a kind of affection for films like. Especially those from Roger Michell and Rachel McAdams. Nice QT!

Rachel McAdams isn't the only you reason you rated this a 2 instead of a 1, is she? LOL!
March 24, 2011
you know me so well, man...I have a huge crush on her. LOL!

I can't imagine why... LOL! You know, I can't stand Nicholas Sparks, but because of Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, "The Notebook" was actually quite good. Don't tell anyone I said that. ; )

don't worry I won't. I also actually enjoyed THE HOT CHICK because of McAdams and Anna Faris....don't tell anyone or I'll kill you!

I thought you enjoyed that movie because Rob Schneider is so pretty to look at.

And yet Roger Ebert gave it 3.5 out of 4 stars. Sometimes, he baffles me.

I know what you mean, sometimes I cannot understand him. I was stunned when I found that he gave such a weak rating to A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.

Morning Glory is a love story from the production world dedicated to the city of New York. It shows all of the things that those of us who eat, breath, and sleep production deal with every time we are on set. The things that make us "production", from the things that lift us up to the things that tear us down. Set in one of the production capitals of the world, Morning Glory tells story with a girls dream and desire to make it in the morning news world. For me, New York eventually …

   Imagine the old Mary Tyler Moore television show with a glossy remake and you've got an idea of what to expect from Morning Glory. Rachel McAdams plays Becky, and this girl has grit and moxie and perk, and boy does that grate the cranky settled folks at a dying morning show. Through pure heart and the aforementioned moxie, things change...but for the good or the bad? That is the question. Family friendliness?  A couple iffy PG scenes, a few words (including one or two F Bombs), …

It isn’t often you see a film in which every actor is painfully misdirected. Rachel McAdams performs most of “Morning Glory” as if she were a little girl on a bad sugar high, always with the anxious babbling and the perky expressions and the neurotic enthusiasm she brings to her situation, which is itself so horribly contrived that it doesn’t belong in a movie so much as it does on a sitcom. Harrison Ford, an accomplished actor if ever there was one, delivers every line like …

      0 Walking out of the new Rachel McAdams comedy “Morning Glory” with a frown on your face, saying you hated the film, is the journalistic equivalent of punching a puppy in the face. I’m not talking about a gentle shove or a thump between the eyes, I’m talking about a full-power punch right between the eyes. Now while that’s a blunt analogy, I feel like it’s a great description for how loveable this film really is. Backed by some solid …

Morning Glory was predictable but still worth seeing. I tend to favor more unconventional stories with surprise endings but I also enjoy a no brainer like Morning Glory on occasion. Loved the cast ... it was a feel good easy to watch movie
