‘Morning Glory’ can’t seem to figure out if it wants to be a remake of The Ugly Truth without Katherine Heigl or the redheaded stepchild of Broadcast News. Rachel McAdams does the best she can with the script that feels like it was written by a large committee.

What was the most frustrating thing for Best Movies Ever about Morning Glory was that there’s a lot of good in this film, but it gets discounted by all the muddled storylines and a script that just doesn’t know where it wants to go or wants to cover too much. Working Girl set the standard for the plucky female worker overcoming all the odds and Anne Hathaway with Meryl Streep stepped it up a notch with The Devil Wear’s Prada so we thought that Aline Brosh McKenna who adapted Prada to really hit it out of the park with this cast, but she just falls back onto the same old same girl feeling like she’s in over her head with people who’ve played the game far too long and then learn their lesson from the naive newcomer.

What we did like with Morning Glory was how it showed how news channels are trying to struggle with a 24 hour news cycle and how it’s reduced much of it to frothy lite news rather than hard hitting matter like what Broadcast News was able to show. This is where Morning Glory seems to have gone off the rails. It doesn’t know when it wants to be serious or just frothy fun. Diane Keaton does her usual Diane Keaton frazzled personality while Rachel McAdams sometimes goes a little too over the top with material that’s so beneath both of them. Even with the movie synopsis (below), we at Best Movies Ever were expecting something better with this cast and writer.

Morning Glory synopsis: When hard-working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news program, her career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at “Daybreak” (the last-place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford). Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts – let alone work with his new co-host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), a former beauty queen and longtime morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning “news.” As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then on the air, Becky’s blossoming love affair with fellow producer, Adam Bennett (Wilson) begins to unravel – and soon Becky is struggling to save her relationship, her reputation, her job and ultimately, the show itself.

Best Movies Ever Rating: C
Morning Glory could have been so much more with this cast, but it couldn’t figure out what it wanted to be. A frothy comedy or something with a message. It’s not bad like Skyline, but it’s more of a late night cable channel movie.
