It’s been a while since we’ve seen a big screen workplace comedy that actually made us laugh and director Roger Mitchell‘s new film, Morning Glory might put an end to that drought. Not only does it look funny but it has an amazing cast including Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Jeff Goldblum, Rachel McAdams, Patrick Wilson, and the awesome Ty Burrell from ABC’s “Modern Family.” What more could you ask for? Check out the trailer…
The premise for Morning Glory centers on a young TV producer who works for a morning news show that happens to be tanking in the ratings. In a last ditch effort to revitalize the program she hires a veteran news anchor (Ford) to join the show but he butts heads with the current female host and former beauty queen played by Keaton. He doesn’t want to cover gossip or fashion or any of the frilly topics that the show has to offer. It’s old school meets new school and the laughs ensue.
The film actually looks funny and its great to see Ford in a comedy that has a decent story. He’s always hilarious in interviews so we know he has a personality and the timing to pull off this material. The rest of the cast is just icing on the cake. Rachel McAdams can do no wrong.
Morning Glory will hit theaters on November 12, 2010.
