Becky (Rachel McAdams) is a hard-working morning TV show producer, or at least she was until she got fired. Desperate to get a job, she finally gets an interview with Jerry (Jeff Goldblum) - who is desperate to hire a producer for the struggling show "Daybreak". Becky accepts the job and it proves to be more difficult than even she might be able to handle. She has to fire the sexist co-host, then try to convince egotistical news reporter, Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), to take the job, and then try and get him to actually do the job, properly. And she has to do this while falling for handsome Adam (Patrick Wilson), and trying to save the show from plummeting ratings. Will Becky be able to hold on to her dream job and her sanity? Written by

When the NBC executive tells Becky "I mean, you have done an amazing job
of revitalizing a show that many people had just completely written off.", the camera visibly shakes, jumping up and down. See more
Hey. Hi. Hey.
Hey, I just came to, uh... to offer my condolences on hiring the third worst person in the world.
[realizing what he's talking about
Oh! Thanks. Yes, I... Um, who are the other two?
Oh, well, Kim Jong-il and Angela Lansbury, actually. She knows what she did.
Okay. So, I... I gather that you worked with Mike at the nightly news.
Worst year of my life. The entire time we worked together, the only thing he ever called me was "Señor Dipshit".
