Film Fest Smackdown

Watched Morning Glory last night.  Set in a sad-sack TV morning show it stars Rachel McAdams and the always-welcome Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford.  There is some enjoyment in this flick, but also obvious misses (the running scene?  sheesh - where's a field of daisies when you need 'em?).  I blame writer(s) and director: who else came up with the "daisy" moment?  Some situations and details are funny, the main actress appealing, many of the character actors a hoot, but smarter direction could have toned down the ingenue's yappiness and Harrison Ford's grumpiness as a start.  As for the writers...

Well, just they (and you) should watch Broadcast News.
