What’s the Story “Morning Glory”? A Really Funny Movie, As It Turns Out

November 19, 2010 § 1 Comment

The reviews were mixed, at best.  The cast was stellar – Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton, Harrison Ford, Patrick Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum.  And I was in need of a good laugh.  So I took a chance, and I’m glad that I did.

Morning Glory is one seriously laugh-out-loud funny movie.  There are so many witty one-liners – and no, they’re not all given away in the trailer – that you really do need to pay attention.  They sneak up on you, especially when it comes to Harrison Ford’s deadpan delivery.  Sometimes it takes a second to realize the smart humor in the line.

Forgive the small transgressions –  every good New York knows that Schiller’s Liquor Bar is not located on Madison Avenue and that rising stars do not attend job interviews at the Today Show in cocktail dresses and that television played just for laughs doesn’t always work – because even when things don’t quite pass the muster, you’ll still find yourself laughing.  And you’ve got to love a movie that has two strong female leads played by two top-notch actresses, not to mention three swoon-worthy male leads.

When the kids head to “Harry Potter” this weekend, I recommend that you check out Morning Glory.  Try it, you might like it.

    my question is, is the title of the movie ‘Morning Glory’ or What’s the Story Morning Glory?(like the Oasis album)?
    i am confused because in some posters they have one title and in others they have a different one.
    I’ve seen the commercials and it is now being advertised as “Morning Glory” only…
    so, which one is it?
    Does Oasis somehow own the copyright to that phrase and that caused the movie producers to change the title?
    Also, i found out that JJ Abrams is the producer of this movie and everyone knows he’s an Oasis fan(Driveshaft/Lost).
