Roger Michell's latest has a sunny disposition but little behind the eyes

Morning Glory review

Broadcast News nailed the politics of TV news, and Anchorman the absurdities, so what’s left for Roger Michell’s comedy to do?

Not a lot, except to give Harrison Ford the chance to grinch his heart out as a decorated journo roped into rescuing a failing morning show.

Only he won’t do cookery spots or any of that crap, much to (over)perky producer Rachel McAdams’ chagrin.

Michell’s movie is as superficial as an item on celebrity socks, but Ford has rarely had so much fun being so miserable.

Shame diva co-anchor Diane Keaton is underused. Don’t they know who she is?
