Mother and I have seen quite a few of these (what do they call them? Date flicks?) lately and found most of them lacking good dialog, writing, or interesting or compelling. You know what I mean. We found Morning Glory funny with pretty creative writing and acting. Rachel McAdams as a perky morning show producer was excellent and the supporting cast was good too. Jeff Goldblum even had some of the funnest lines. Over all... worth watching, even if you are not like mom and have been watching Good Morning America and Today all your lives.
This one worked for me. Just a simple plot. Two guys trying to stop a runaway train before it crashes and kills a lot of people in a town. Some good character development and enough action to keep you watching and not bored. Denzel Washington is always smooth. Real trains and not a lot of special effects impressed me.
