A female news producer (McAdams), desperate to be given a break, attempts to put out the flames between an aging anchorman (Ford) and his blustery but iconic co-host (Keaton) in a last-ditch effort to save their failing morning show… but the deal is, if she fails, she loses her own job!
I watched this little gem on the plane to California this winter and it made the time race by. It’s been a while since Harrison Ford has done such a great comedy role and the on-screen chemistry (or lack of it) with Diane Keaton was wonderful. Yes, OK, it’s a classic hollywood formatted RomCom from the writers of ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ and the director of ‘Notting Hill’, but it was worth 90 minutes of anyone’s life in my book!
Verdict: Sit back and let the fun wash over you.****
