Morning Glory - Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford & Diane Keaton

A Morning Glory is a flower that blooms early in the morning and recoils in the evening. This early riser is a tough little vine. This is a fitting title for the new romantic comedy written by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) and staring Rachel McAdams. This is a work place comedy based around a clumsy workaholic. Working in TV and broadcasting can take over ones life. It takes a lot to bring you the Morning News. People wake in the middle of the night to get to work before the sun. The news show Daybreak is in fourth place and has been known as kind of a joke. When this young rambling producer comes in to save the show she has her work cut out for her. The long time host played by Diane Keaton laughs off her new spunky boss. Harrison Ford comes in as a mean old news man that forced into Morning News because of his contract. Keaton has wonderful comic timing and Ford plays a great bitter drunk. They compliment each other. The love story seems pushed to the back of the action with Patrick Wilson playing a journalist that has the hots for our crazy young producer. The premiere last Sunday, Nov. 7, at the Ziegfeld Theater brought stars out to the red carpet, and Morning Glory hopes to bring couples into the theaters.
