86. Morning Glory

                 First thing that should be made clear: Morning Glory is not a romantic comedy. It is not a Chick Flick. It is a comedy and happens to have a female in the lead. But there is no relationship that on the brink of blossoming then shattering then blossoming again. There is a big misconception out there that it is a chick flick. No, just a comedy.
                J.J. Abrams is one of my favorites out there. From Alias to LOST to the extremely underrated Cloverfield to Star Trek to Fringe to the upcoming Super 8 most of the stuff Abrams and his Bad Robot production has done is Sci-fi/action related. So when I saw that Bad Robot was doing a comedy like Morning Glory I was interested. Also the movie stars Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford. In fact Ford is the funniest part of the movie and steals every scene he is in.
         Morning Glory is a great movie. It centers around McAdams’ character as she becomes the new executive producer of a failing morning talk show called DayBreak.  She convinces a once proud and well seasoned news anchor (FORD), who takes the news SERIOUS!, to come and be the new co-anchor of this Daybreak show and the craziness begins! This movie is one you should watch if not just for Ford’s performance. Plus it is really, really funny. 

Final Verdict: Worth owning. It’s great.


  1. I am totally with you on this! Harrison Ford has some of the best lines EVER in this movie!!!! i'm laughing right now just from remembering it. I didn't know abrams directed though. I'm surprised he put together a film with any sort of depth. Anyway, this movie is basically a story about someone who takes a light-hearted, optimistic attitude, adds determination, and gets the job done with the deck totally stacked against her. It's inspiring, and it's really, really funny. I liked it a lot.

  2. Horrible movie!!! Luke the sucker I am, paid the big bucks and saw it at the theater!!!!!

  3. Good movie, good cast, good writing. I like it alot.

    BTW, Cloverfield is not undrrated, if anything it is overrated.

  4. Yeah Phantom of the Opera guy! I had to say that because Jimmy says I always say it. I think that the movie is well written and very funny. You really want to kick Harrison Ford in the butt a couple of times but that's how his character is supposed to be so it's all good. Loved this movie.
