"Morning Glory" could have easily fallen off a cliff into working-girl chick-flick hell, the sort of movie where they think it's clever to name the lead character "Glory" just to deliver on the title pun.

Fortunately, she's named Becky. More fortunately, she's played by Rachel McAdams, rather than Sandra Bullock or Katherine Heigl. Most fortunately, the movie's a winner.

Becky (McAdams) is a go-getter TV news producer who has been given a chance to revive a flailing morning news show, the butt of jokes among the networks.

Her revival of the show revolves around the unlikely pairing of a going-through-the-motions perky morning anchor (Diane Keaton) and a grizzled, serious newsman (Harrison Ford).

"Notting Hill" director Roger Michell delivers a fun, sweet and winning movie in "Morning Glory." It's fluffy, but in a good way.

McAdams plays Becky as driven without being abrasive and optimistic without being naive. She continues to show she's better at choosing roles than many of her contemporaries.

Ford's scowling, grouchy old man routine is quite funny, and he has nice chemistry with both McAdams and Keaton.

There's a love story that kind of gets undersold, but overall, a smart script and the wonderful McAdams make this a great date flick.
