Rated PG-13 · 110 minutes · 2010

Romantic comedy
Rachel McAdams is splendidly goofy as a morning-TV-show producer who must contend with Harrison Ford’s supreme grouchiness in this fun (if not overly intelligent) movie. McAdams plays Becky, who gets a gig in the form of a show called Daybreak after a scary interview with boss man Jerry Barnes (a delightfully acerbic Jeff Goldblum). She is assigned the unenviable task of getting the low-rated show out of the basement before network execs pull the plug. She fires the male co-anchor and forces big-time former newsman Mike Pomeroy (Ford) to take the job in order to fulfill his contractual obligations. When Mike takes his seat next to co-anchor Colleen (Diane Keaton), crazy stuff happens. McAdams is up to the task of squaring off with old pros Ford and Keaton, and everybody provides nice amounts of laughter. Ford hasn’t been this good in years.
