Basically, this movie is really a 80's classic and, therefore, I was really eager to check it out. Back then, William Hurt was a really hot actor, starring every year in the movies with the highest profile and this movie was definitely one of those.

Description: James Brooks directs William Hurt, Holly Hunter and Albert Brooks in this satirical comedy about three ambitious newscasters.

Movie Reviews (951-1000) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It feels natural and it is beautifully acted with a comedic realism seldom seen in American comedies. The film is full of dry, witty dialogue and the director seem to have an inside-information about the news industry. It documents and predicts the trends of the news-industry from hard "real" news to tabloid "soft" news. Jack Nicholson in a great small but important role. The Downs: There is a love triangle that has some obvious conflict in it. "

"Home - New Aside from the final five minutes this is a scathing, vicious, really fun, insight into network news. Brilliant performances by Hurt, Hunter and Brooks elevate a fantastic script."

""Six years from now, I'll be back here with my wife and two kids. And I'll see you, and one of my kids will say, 'Daddy, who is that?' And I'll say it's not nice to point at single fat women." - Aaron Altman A media critique in the same league as "Network". The film is funny and insightful. Albert Brooks is comedically delightful.
