It's nowhere near as expository about the television business as "Network" or "Broadcast News," but this comedy about a flailing morning show and the optimistic producer (Rachel McAdams) brought on board to energize it does have its pleasures.
The main ones are a charming McAdams and a very amusing Harrison Ford, who plays a veteran newsman reluctant to do on-air "happy talk" with the show's female co-host (Diane Keaton). Director Roger Michell's ("Notting Hill") cast also includes Jeff Goldblum as a network executive and Patrick Wilson as McAdams' new love interest. DVD extras: audio commentary by Michell and screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna; deleted scene. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
