This often-witty baby-of-"Broadcast News" tries hard to be liked, like the TV fluff it's built around. The news is that, often, it...

Entertainment Weekly

Where Broadcast News mourned the trivialization of the nightly news, Morning Glory asks you to learn to stop worrying and love the trivia.

It merely recycles 1987's "Broadcast News" with only a single reference to YouTube.

This just in: Morning Glory can't decide whether to skewer the morning news or wallow in its pap.

This production is a mess for many reasons, most of them having to do with its frantic efforts to be funny.

Enjoyable puff piece

Another Must Go

Absolutely the funniest movie of this genre I've seen in years. I laughed out loud way more often than I did for "It's Complicated" and it was a very good funny movie too....

Would not recommend

Swift Kick in the Glory

A rundown morning show program desperately in need of a TV producer who can give the show a swift kick in the ratings butt to keep it from getting canned. Add to this a pigheaded, over the hill news...
