Morning Glory (2010)

Director: Roger Michell. Cast: Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum. 107 min. Rated PG-13. Comedy/Drama/Romance.

You initially wonder why old-timers like Ford and Keaton agreed to this lighthearted, semi-predictable comedy about news broadcasting. But then midway through, the movie starts to gradually gather momentum, and Rachel McAdams (as the ever-enchanting central powerhouse) carries the entire movie (together with its superstars) head-on into an ending that is very convincing. Nice to see great actors having fun with easy projects every once in while, and Ford's screenplay-choosing skills are always admirable - even when it involves wearing an apron to make an omelet on national TV.
