Motivational and Funny Movie!
I saw the screening of this movie last night and was pleasantly
surprised that this was not another "chick flick". The story focuses
around a young female producer that is hard working and hoping to get
her dream job of Executive Producer (EP) of a well known TV morning
show. Instead, she is accepted into the EP position on a failing TV
morning show. Dedicated to her career, which was her dream since age 8,
she has little time for men and romance. As the story progresses she
has countless obstacles she must overcome and a high amount of stress
that comes with the job. There are many comical scenes as the producer
is practically at wits end during the main duration of the movie. She
doesn't seem to lose her cool much of the movie, and when she does
become infused with anger or passion she is constructive in using it to
complete her job. This is a feel good story that shows with hard work,
dedication (following a dream since age 8!), a bit of luck, and having
faith in yourself, you can accomplish your goals. A nice change from
the current female lead characters currently out there.
I left the theater thinking about my own career and how I could improve
myself or work ethics. This movie is definitely a go-see!

Diane Keaton Kisses a Frog
Rachel McAdams has been at the summit of the romance genre since her
performance in "The Notebook" in 2004. However, her acting talents go
far beyond this lovey dovey genre placing her in movies like "Sherlock
Holmes" in 2009. Most of her past films reach out to the audience
itself in order to connect to them, however her newest film is a little
harder to connect to and read. Instead it is the viewer's job to try
and get something out of it. This is attributed to the film's very slow
start that leads to a very funny core and an inspirational reward at
the end. However, the entire film is very slowly paced. "So what's the
story?" "Morning glory" begins showing Rachel McAdams's character Becky
Fuller attempting to be on a date with a man, while she is constantly
connected to her work cell phone. And yep you guessed it the date
doesn't go very well. Becky is a workaholic TV producer who is fired
from her producing job at her local low budget early morning news
program. Consequently, she feels like she has lost everything and is
caught in a downward spiral with no one but her job ready to pick her
up. She is finally hired to produce the failing second-rate early
morning show Day Break on the network IBS. In order to save the show
Becky teams up with her famous yet washed up news anchor hero Mike
Pomeroy (played by Harrison Ford) and ditsy Colleen Peck (played by
Diane Keaton) as they go on a journey to self-discovery. Along the way
Becky meets a man named Adam Bennett played by Patrick Wilson who he
ultimately has to decide what is more important her job or her love
The film is best at its core bringing gut wrenching laughs by the
dozens with its ridiculous morning show TV antics. Ranging from kissing
a frog to skydiving everyone at Day Break are let loose by Becky,
giving the film its best moments. Diane Keaton is in the center of
these comedic moments as her ditsy news anchor character Colleen holds
nothing back. Therefore, the actors are the most important part of this
film. Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford create a peculiar father
daughter chemistry as they portray the struggle of their characters to
work with each other. Therefore, their different acting styles mesh
very well. Rachel McAdams being one of the sweetest and most talented
present day actresses is so absorbed in the part it is almost
impossible to separate her from her character Becky. Harrison Ford's
performance differs a lot from his "Indiana Jones," "Star Wars," and
"Blade Runner" roots as he fuses the washed up hard exterior of Mike
Pomeroy with heart and soul.
The film suffers from the addition of extra characters and failing to
fully develop their story and background. They are only relevant to one
scene and do not have any impact on the film as a whole. Becky's mother
(Patti D. Arbanville) is one of these characters as she gives Becky her
"I think you are throwing your life away speech" at the beginning of
the film. This is followed by the appearance of other nothing
characters that take away from the impact of the film. The film is also
very slow to start and very slow to inspire until a little snippet at
the end of the film. Yes it is inspiring, but it comes at a time a
little too late instead of building gradually throughout the movie it
hits you in the face just before the movie ends.
Everyone deserves to have his or her own glory in one-way or another.
However, even though hard work is important everyone needs help at one
time or another from close relationships and family. So that's the
story, "Morning Glory" is a very enjoyable story that you should see at
least on DVD..
