Morning Glory


I love my friends who have Netflix instant queue.  It's so awesome to instantly be able to pick a movie that you want to watch, and get it on the spot!  I had wanted to watch this movie for a long time so I was really excited when my friend Danny had it in his queue!

The movie is about Becky Fuller (played by the lovely Rachel McAdams) - a producer for a small, local morning show.  When she is fired, her life is thrown into upheaval.  Because it's a movie, Becky gets really lucky and lands a job as the executive producer of the lowest ranked morning show, Daybreak.  It's her job to bring the ratings up.  She enlists the help of world-famous news anchor Mike Pomeroy (played by Harrison Ford), only he refuses to cover any "news" that is beneath him.  He also refuses to be nice to his co-anchor Colleen Peck (played by Diane Keaton).  While all this is going on, Becky is also trying to build a relationship with another producer in her building, Adam Bennett (played by Patrick Wilson).  

Will Becky be able to save her news show and get everyone to get along?  Will her relationship with Adam survive?  You'll have the watch the movie to find out!

I LOVED this movie! Especially since this is what my life would have been like if I had stayed the course of journalism.

I'm not a huge movie buff, but this was definitely one I wanted to see.

And never did.

Thanks for the reminder...weather is bad and I'm home sick. Sounds like I just found something to do today!

I liked this movie a lot and what was surprising was my husband did too. Usually he only likes movies where things are blown up or someone dies.

Because I got a Wii for Christmas we can now stream our Netflix. That was the first movie I watched.
I had seen it before but I loved watching it again.
