Rachel McAdams’ ‘Morning Glory’ is pure lighthearted fun

By Erin Darling

HollywoodNews.com: “Morning Glory” stars Rachel McAdams as Becky Fuller, a young and passionate news producer with a can-do attitude so over-the-top that it borders on naivety. After being let go from her position at “Good Morning New Jersey,” she embarks on a relentless mission to find a new job. When she’s given the opportunity to produce the struggling national morning show “Daybreak,” she jumps at the chance, although the ratings are just about as dismal as the budget. On her first day on the job, Fuller makes the ballsy choice to fire the highly inappropriate male anchor (”Modern Family” actor Ty Burrell) and is forced to find an adequate replacement. Due to monetary restrictions, she’s forced to find a potential anchor as desperate as she is.

Enter Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), a curmudgeonly veteran newsman known for his stoic demeanor and journalistic integrity. Although he initially scoffs at the idea of discussing fluff topics like diet trends or home decorating, he agrees to anchor “Daybreak” for the paycheck.

“Morning Glory” follows Fuller’s attempts to inspire Pomeroy to rise to the morning show agenda, although he refuses to stoop to the level of his ebullient co-host Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton). The rest of the film follows a predictable course: Fuller’s tenacity and hard work eventually yield positive results, while Pomeroy teaches Fuller a few life lessons that help the hotshot producer realize there’s more to life than a career.
