Description:Up and coming network news producer Jane Craig (Holly Hunter) has to choose between two newsmen; the polished, good-looking but shallow Tom Grunick (William Hurt) and the intelligent but awkward Aaron Altman (Albert Brooks). She picks Tom, but at the end, she decides he's too phony and ends up with neither of them.

Review - Broadcast News

Billed as a comedy. I found it mildly entertaining, but I don't think I laughed once. There was a scene about a large lay-off of employees that hit a bit too close to home. The ending, with the three meeting up seven years later to discuss what's happening in their lives and careers, was flat.
