Broadcast News Review


Rather dated now, this acclaimed tragicomedy about the network news sheds a little light on how the news gets made -- namely about how pretty boy anchormen are fed everything they say -- but its romance falls on the flat side. Holly Hunter (hard-boiled producer) and William Hurt (aforementioned pretty boy) are just too mismatched to make for a believable pair, and quirky Albert Brooks (geeky reporter) would never in a million years be allowed on the air. It's absurd but often funny, usually when it's dissecting the TV trade.
