Storyline

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?

Not what I expected but very funny
4 November 2010 | by mbalderson-1See all my reviews

I just came from a screening of this movie. I went in thinking total chick flick and came away quite impressed. There is a love story but it doesn't take up the whole movie and get heavy with it. The movie more centers around an up and coming producer of a local TV morning show that ends up at the lowest rated nationally syndicated morning show. what entails is a humorous tale of trying to get the shows ratings up.

If I had not received screening tickets to this movie I probably would have never have seen it in the theater but after watching this movie I would have gladly shelled out $10-15 for a ticket to this movie. Well worth the time and even better I got to go for free.
