  Breaking News...........We got a great little film!!!

I did find this film had a rocky first twenty minutes or so, but once it got going I really ended up enjoying it a lot.

When she's hired to try and reverse the failing morning TV show Daybreak, young TV producer Becky (Rachel McAdams) has the idea of replacing the sleazy current male anchor with veteran serious journalist and reporter Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford) alongside longtime host Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton). However, the super-serious Mike has nothing but utter contempt for morning TV shows (but ends up having to accept thanks to a clause in his contract) which leaves Becky struggling to keep the show from being cancelled, keep her two antagonistic anchors from war with each other and perhaps find the time to have a date with fellow producer Adam!!!

Rachel McAdams absolutely carries the film even when it diverts a bit into less interesting ground (I didn't really get a lot out of her romance story with Patrick Wilson) and her fantastic performance is just another in a long line of them she's given. Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton also excel (Keaton once again proving her comedic chops) and have chemistry with each other and although it's mostly a fairly light romantic drama not hugely unlike 'The Devil Wears Prada' there's also an interesting underlying point about the increasing volume of fluff journalism at the expense of actual serious journalism as well, epitomised by Ford's and Keaton's characters.

It doesn't dwell on that too much though, but the fact it's an argument that's there at least gives the film a bit more substance than some other rom-coms around. All in, this is a well made, at times highly witty, well acted and directed film that probably deserved to do a little better at the box-office than it actually did.

Very enjoyable.

  Really good comedy!

I decided to buy this movie because Rachel McAdams is one of the main characters. I was pleasantly surprised by how good it actually was, and found myself in hysterics as the story went on. Well worth buying!

  Brilliant A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.

I wasn't expecting too much from this film and I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the story and found it very easy to watch. Rachel McAdams is really good and Harrison Ford plays grumpy old man particularly well!

Worth a watch if you like rom coms!

This is a excellent 'feel good' film, the way in which each member of the cast has been chosen is superb, each member no match A, B or supporting plays their roles very well.
The film starts off the slightest bit slow, but quickly picks up and then goes into overdrive. The comedy, the love the laughs, all can be felt by the audience.
The ending was so good it brought tears to my girlfriends eyes. Gotta love the way in which Harrison and Diane interact with Rachel is fantastic, definatley one of my feel good favs.

  Loved it

I loved this film - perfect chick flick but my boyfriend really enjoyed it too and we cant wait to watch it when it comes out on DVD.
Lovely story - one of those films that just makes you feel positive. Rachel McAdams is just brilliant in it - Harrison Ford plays a brilliant grumpy old man and the cast just ...fit! Funny, interesting, and extremely watchable and it has an AMAZING soundtrack.

  One of the funniest movies iv seen lately!!

  BREAKFAST TV GETS INTERESTING!!!

Having seen the trailer i got interested in this with Rachel McAdams playing a career girl looking to make an impact somewhere and gets her shot at a failing morning tv show. Harrison Ford plays a grumpy former news anchor bumped down to anchor the morning show with Diane Keaton and their chemistry on screen actually works. Starts off very formulaic but picks up pace as it goes on and becomes a very funny and well written movie. Enjoy

  The 3rd worst man in the world

Honestly i liked this. This isn't a special movie or something different but it has a likeability to it and i enjoyed it. Rachel mcadams is becky, a producer of a morning show who gets fired. She has no social life and lives for her work. She has to step down a peg to a job of a usless morning show called daybreak. Everyone expects her to fail so nobody gives her the time of day. She stamps her foot down by firing one of the anchors of the show and hiring a pain in the rear former news anchor. Harrison ford shines as mike pemoroy, a stubborn, egotistical, horrible man and diane keaton is good too as his co anchor on the show. However it is rachel mcadams film and she plays becky perfectly
