What’s it about?

After losing her job a stressed, prissy TV producer finds a position on a TV breakfast show that has lost its spark. She has the task of trying to restore it to its former glory.

Who will enjoy it?

Anyone who needs a giggle to escape the January heat. This fun, cool comedy is just the thing if you want to kick off the new year on a high note. It shows your dreams can come true – if you’re motivated and have the right attitude and a pleasant personality. The director manages to fill this quirky romantic comedy with grumps, eccentric lovers and hilarious moments, without turning it into an over-the-top, slapstick farce.

Wait for DVD?

Yes, it’ll go down well with microwaved popcorn and a lounge full of your best friends. Rachel McAdams has enough charisma to make even the most tired comedy situations seem like they’re on steroids. The laughs lie not just in the witticisms of the confused characters but also in grumpy Harrison Ford who for once manages to raise his voice above an irritated growl. A predictable but entertaining movie.
