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.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Dec 24 2015
Format: Blu-ray
I looked up dark comedy in the dictionary and it had "Up in the Air" by it. There isn't much plot to the movie, yet it keeps moving. It makes a statement about following your dreams, family, and goals as Clooney's words somehow always come back to haunt him. I had to laugh at loud when Sam Elliot came back to talk to Clooney about joining the 10 million mile club. Shades of "The Big Lebowski." I kept expecting him to call George "dude" and tell him he was his father. The movie is bittersweet at times and sad at others, although not a tear jerker. I was confused about his occupation. He is paid to come into an industry and tell the workers they are laid off. Doesn't HR fire people? Do they really hire an outside company to do that? The irony of a man who fires people for a living speaking at a conference called "Goalquest" is a bit Orwellian. The best line in the movie was during a firing that he allowed his young assistant to do. She got into trouble, so Clooney the master ax man, steps in and says, "Do you know why kids love ball players?" The old man says "Because the make a lot of money and have sex with beautiful women." Clooney responds, "No, that is why we love them. The reason why kids love them is because they followed their dream." He then convinces the man he can be a hero to grand kids by leaving this job and following his dream.

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.

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 25 2010
Format: Blu-ray
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.
