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.
