MOVIE REVIEW

From director Roger Michell (Venus, Notting Hill) and writer Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) comes Morning Glory, a funny, witty behind-the-scenes look into all the glory and ugliness of early morning TV.  Rachel McAdams stars as a rising TV producer, who, after being laid off from her job, begins work at Daybreak, the fourth-place ugly sister of the Today Show.  Faced with finding ways to raise the show's failing ratings before it is cancelled, Becky (McAdams) decides to bring together two disparate co-anchors, Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton), a Kathie Lee Gifford-type, and Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), a disgruntled hard news man, who has been waiting out his contract at the network after being fired from his last gig.  As Patrick Wilson, who plays Becky's love interest, points out, Pomeroy is the third worst human being on the planet, which is a title he well deserves.  Becky must navigate these two tricky personalities to save the show and her career before it is too late.
