Morning Glory is a 2010 romantic comedy-drama movie directed by Roger Michell and starring Rachel McAdams as Becky Fuller, a young television producer who is given the challenge of reviving a struggling morning show called Daybreak. The film also features an ensemble cast including Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum.

Becky Fuller is a passionate and ambitious news producer who dreams of achieving greatness in the highly competitive world of television news. However, when she loses her job at a local New Jersey morning show, her dreams are shattered. She soon gets a second chance when she is hired as the executive producer of Daybreak, a struggling morning show on the fourth-ranked network, IBS.

Becky quickly sets to work to improve the show, but she struggles with the challenge of reconciling the different personalities of the show's anchors. Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton), the show's veteran co-anchor, is resistant to change and refuses to work with her new co-anchor, veteran journalist Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), who has been brought in to boost ratings. Mike, who does not consider the show beneath him, is similarly annoyed by the show's light-hearted tone and tendency to feature celebrity gossip.

Becky's efforts to fix the show are further complicated by her growing feelings for Adam Bennett (Patrick Wilson), a handsome and charming professional who offers to help her reinvigorate the program. But while Becky is juggling the needs of her show and her love life, Daybreak's ratings continue to drop, putting her job and her dream at risk.

Despite the odds, Becky remains determined to save the show and restore her own career. She persuades Mike to break his contract and appear on the show, and his brusque on-air personality soon makes him an unlikely hit, but his gruff manner alienates his fellow anchors and the boss (Jeff Goldblum). However, when a personal tragedy befalls Becky, she is forced to re-examine her priorities and make tough decisions about her career and her relationships.

Filled with witty dialogue, clever humor, and heartfelt moments, Morning Glory is an entertaining and uplifting movie that explores the behind-the-scenes world of morning television news. Rachel McAdams delivers a standout performance as the determined and passionate Becky Fuller, while Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton add their trademark charisma and charm to their roles. The film tackles themes of ambition, sacrifice, and love with a deft touch that will leave audiences both laughing and moved.

Overall, Morning Glory is a charming and engaging movie that will appeal to fans of romantic comedies and workplace dramas alike. With its strong performances, clever script, and touching story, it is a must-watch for anyone who loves a good underdog story.

Morning Glory is a 2010 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 47 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5 and a MetaScore of 57.
