Though the characterizations are a drawn a bit too broad at times, I enjoyed "Morning Glory", and Rachel McAdams gives a winning performance as an up-an-coming early morning show producer who has to deal with sagging ratings, and a pair of co-anchors (played by Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford) who don't quite get along.  It follows a somewhat standard Rocky (underdog with the heart of gold) storyline, but I found it entertaining nonetheless, especially in the final act.

I give it 3 stars or a grade of B.
