Up in the Air
'Up In The Air' reminded me a great deal of 'About Schmidt' - with that pure midwest flavor. This is George Clooney at his best in drama. This pic was advertized as comedy but is far from it. This story was marvelous rich drama. I was quite surprised at the depth & dramatic appeal. I would recommend this flick to anyone who loves a real story without Hollywood mucking it up with 'happy ever after'.

Ryan Bingham's (George Clooney) job is to fly around the country and fire people for companies who don't want to do it themselves. He likes his work and his life, which is uncomplicated by relationships or domestic demands. On one stop-over, however, Ryan meets a female version of himself (Vera Farmiga) and sparks fly.

The success of this movie must be due entirely to the charm of its leading man, because it is in no other way unusual or special. Clooney is quite likable playing his usual confident smooth-talker and Farmiga is good in an undemanding role but not worthy of an Oscar nomination, in my opinion. The plot is pleasant enough, but hardly memorable, so I don't understand all the excitement about it. It was just okay for me. 3.5 stars.

Jason Reitman has directed four full-length films and I love them all. Thank You for Smoking and Young Adult are very good, while Juno and Up in the Air are close to perfect. All are a combination of drama and comedy, but Up in the Air has more dramatic elements than the other three.

Ryan Bingham (Clooney) spends most of his life traveling. He flies from one city to another to fire people on behalf of companies who don't want to perform the task. We are told that he spent 322 days on the road the previous year. Although that kind of life would be detested by most people, Bingham likes it. He lives in hotels and his apartment is just an extension of that environment.

The rest of Bingham's time is taken up by giving motivational speeches. His philosophy states that our lives are filled with meaningless possessions, so he asks us to imagine starting over. He also believes that people are weighed down by the relationships in their lives. Whether it's friends, work colleagues, family members or romantic partners, they can be the most significant burdens we face. As a result, Bingham doesn't allow himself to get close to anybody in any type of relationship.

Does that sound depressing? Many of the people who dislike the film cite that as the main reason. I find it poignant, charming, intelligent and very funny.

Bingham's existence is threatened when a potential innovation is considered by his company. Instead of sending representatives all over America, the company may switch to firing people remotely using an Internet connection. The scheme is suggested by Natalie (Kendrick), who is young, eager and ambitious. Bingham insists that she doesn't have a clue about the reality of his job and he's given the task of showing her how it works.

We have seen the two formulas separately. One where the stoic individual that need no one breaks down in the end and even wants to be a part of something; this can be the start of something big. The second formula is firing people or tearing down a company. Waite did not we see this vary same combination in "Office Space", "Cash McCall", "Pretty Woman" etc.

So being left without innovation we are left with acting. Hey, wasn't George Clooney great in "Solaris" (2002) where he showed emotion or "Ocean's Eleven" (2001) where he showed action, now we get cardboard.

We start from nowhere go to nowhere. Moreover, do nothing. The only redeeming social value was the lady (Vera Farmiga) wearing the tie; now that was class.

I only saw the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare. However, the voice over commentary helps you figure out what the purpose of the film was.

Saw UP IN THE AIR at the cinema and it was definitely worthwhile. The whole film is a social commentary of our current western world, where people are downsized, struggle with relationship/communication problems, and all while embracing new technologies. What I loved most about this film is the degree of "human-ness" that those problems brought out in the various characters- from Clooney all the way to the minor actors who were downsized. The atmosphere had a texture of a documentary (to say it felt real) and this made the story very rich.

Very surprised with this movie. Didn't expect to like it as much as I do.

The characters are believable, having real life brands makes it all the better. Only wish frequent flyer programs were that rewarding.

I am not sure what it was that i liked about this movie. The young actress that was paired up with George Clooney helped to accentuate the great contrast between generations.
The process of a private company hired to do lay-offs at another company is very topical and even that process itself comes under the economic gun looking for ways to "streamline" and "downsize".
The karaoke scene is always what I flash to when I hear Cyndi Lauper's version of Time-After-Time.
I also enjoyed how GC's character had made the process of getting through airport security an efficient experience. I travel enough to be annoyed by airport security, but he had some "frequent flyer" tips I had never thought of.
Overall, it is a good movie and spoke to me on many levels.
