Movie Review: Morning Glory

I've got three movies to tell you about since we last chatted celluloid so I'll try and make this swift - Harrison Ford's acerbic Mike Pomeroy was a little predictable, I like him better as Han Solo or Jack Ryan. Diane Keaton was her splendid self but she's not why you'll go and see the movie. Rachel McAdams is. She's marvelous. Completely believable as the hardworking, desperate for a break Becky Fuller.

My favourite moment in the film is when after an initially overwhelmed start to her first staff meeting as the new producer at Daybreak, Becky deftly responds to each insular query from her underlings in less than 20 seconds and rounds up her riposte with the firing of Daybreaks disreputable host. Enter the need for Mike Pomeroy.

Like in all good romantic comedies there is always there is a minor character that adds comic asides to the story. Morning Glory is no different. Matt Malloy as hapless weatherman Ernie Appleby is a scene stealer. Absolutely hilarious at times.

However, the most important thing on your mind when you leave Morning Glory will be, where can I get the dress Rachel McAdams is wearing in the final scene of the movie? It is so so lovely and showed off perfectly as she sprints in heels from one part of the city to another. Sad news though, unless you are the costume designer no amount of trawling through forums and photos will provide an answer and I consider myself to be quite a good googler. There's half an hour of my life I'll never get back.

I give this a solid 3.5 out of 5. Definitely above average but before the heavyweights that Harrison and Diane are, I expected at least a 4.
