My thirteen year old granddaughter, who lives in France, went on a school trip on Sunday. She has gone ski-ing down in the French Alps, so I am hoping that she is having a lovely time and keeping safe.
My friend and I went to the cinema again last night, and this time we saw Morning Glory, which starred Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton, Jeff Goldblum and Patrick Wilson.
A brief summary of the story is that Becky Fuller (Rachel McAdams) thought that she was going to be promoted at a local TV Station. Instead, she is shocked to find that she is being sacked. She then gets a job as Producer of a breakfast TV show, where the ratings are nothing short of disastrous. To increase ratings, Becky decides to employ veteran news reporter, Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford) to co-host the show with daytime diva, Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton).
Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and, to cut a long story short, Becky's new boss (Jeff Goldblum) informs her that unless the ratings improve dramatically, the show is going to be axed.
I love Diane Keaton and, I have to say, for a woman of a certain age, she really does look fabulous. Harrison Ford was really getting up my nose whilst I was watching the first part of the film, but I suppose that goes to show how well he was playing the part, because he really was a pain in the proverbial.
With the show due to be cancelled, Becky decides to take the bull by the horns and change the format of the show, and, for me, this is where the film really took off. You must watch out for the weatherman from here on in! The film comes alive and my friend and I were really laughing out loud. It was so funny.
You also have a romantic interest going on throughout the film with Becky and a fellow producer (Patrick Wilson, who is very easy on the eye by the way) who falls in love with her.
It's a feel good movie, and has a happy ending, with Mike coming good in the end.
Would I recommend it? Yes, for a light-hearted evening out, I would.
