    An honest and remarkable account of life in television journalism. Though the technology is dated today, the questions, ethics and style of life is still spot on for an ever-changing industry. Albert Brook's rant to Holly Hunter about the dangers of William Hurt and his style of news is a little-known classic monologue of cinema. An underrated gem for anyone with an interest in news and more cerebral romantic comedies. 7 years 5 months ago

    Solid performances and the ethical issues it raises are still very much up to date. Unfortunately it drags on as the movie gets bogged down in an unnecessary love story turned triangle. 5 years 7 months ago

    I loved it! The actors are terrific and the writing is superb. I've seldom seen a better scripted movie than this one. 6 years 6 months ago
