Review For Up in the AirThe pitch-perfect direction by Jason Reitman perfectly balances comedy and drama.
Lou Lumenick-New York Post
Director Jason Reitman brings such splendid balance and nuance to Bingham's story that you can't hate the man; indeed you end up pitying him.
Tom Long-Detroit News
From taxi to touchdown, Reitman knows how to get us to the next destination.
Lisa Kennedy-Denver Post
Jason Reitman's dry, moving "comedy," based on the Walter Kirn novel, is a sly indictment of Corporate America, Marketing America and Frequent Flying America.
Roger Moore-Orlando Sentinel
I think that this is a classic in the making.
A.O. Scott-At the Movies
Once again, Reitman the screenwriter gives Reitman the director an excuse to ponder the spaces between us and the ties that bind. Or don't.
Amy Biancolli-San Francisco Chronicle
There is perhaps no film that represents the present better ...
Greg Maki-Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
Sometimes, it suggests, you can fly 10 million miles but never really go anywhere at all.
Neil Pond-American Profile
Up in the Air succeeds because it doesn't take itself that seriously and it's not interested in trying to explain obvious truths to the rest of us plebeians. It just wants to show a moment of fundamental change in a man's life.
Just when you start to wonder where the surprise twists will happen, Reitman defies conventional storytelling.
Matt Kelemen-Las Vegas CityLife
Incisive and occasionally sad, this captured the zeitgeist of the late-Zeroes' tectonically shifting economics. But Jason Reitman's generous, rich, rewarding tragicomedy of occupational dissatisfaction will still wow viewers even after (hopeful) recovery.
Up in the Air is so funny, so consistently surprising and so emotionally in-touch that it could have only been crafted by one of the most soulful directors working today.
Reitman proves with Up in the Air that the sky's the limit for his career - he has proven with his three films to be one of the premiere directors of his generation.
Companionship. Independence. Loyalty. Flyer miles. All are a part of the life of George Clooney's corporate downsizer in the timely, and timeless, Up in the Air.
Matthew Pejkovic-Matt's Movie Reviews
One of the pleasures of the film is watching Jason Reitman blossom into a filmmaker light years ahead of the one who made the underwhelming Thank You For Smoking and the overly self-conscious Juno.
George Clooney is thoroughly likeable as the amusingly callous Ray - even watching him at the heart-breaking job of terminating folk en-masse is fun, but it is the women that give the film its heart.
Reitman further perfects his sharp, funny, and affecting seriocomic style in crafting films that wildly entertain in the moment and then linger long in the mind and heart.
Life happens... live it one day at a time and connect to whomever you can, even if it's the person losing their job sitting right across from you.
Kevin A. Ranson-MovieCrypt.com
One of the things that makes George Clooney a great movie star is that he's always letting us know just how much fun he's having being George Clooney.
Sean Burns-Philadelphia Weekly
While it is a good film, a worthy film, a thoughtful film, I'm not sure it is really an Oscar-calibre film. (Blu-ray Edition)
John J. Puccio-Movie Metropolis
As much as it is a comedy in the classic Tracy/Hepburn mold, "Up in the Air" is very much a drama of the moment.
Sean Means-Salt Lake Tribune
Hay tantos ángulos desde donde se puede hablar de esta cinta -responsabilidad social, management, internet, matrimonio, soledad%u2026- que está desde ya, destinada a convertirse en un clásico.
A 21st Century take on downsizing and dating in this no-strings attached age of outsourcing and friends with benefits.
