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.
