Morning Glory


Rachel McAdams is tremendously appealing, and carries this movie. Her character, who is trying to turn around the lowest rated morning show on TV, is so gung-ho that twice people ask her if she’s about to burst into song after one of her cheery pep talks. Harrison Ford plays a cranky newsman of the old school, the kind who believes that covering cute little kittens and chatting up all the on-screen talent is beneath him. And it is, of course. You know Rachel will eventually thaw him out a little. I thought Ford was not very good. The picture belongs to Rachel and to Diane Keaton.
