      Deborah Ross The Spectator We always know just where this film is going... . But as co-written and directed by Jason Reitman, the plot's twists are so delicious and the dialogue so inventively perfect it doesn't matter a jot. Aug 30, 2018 Full Review Ed Koch The Atlantic A slick, cute, diverting, superbly-acted film but also an empty one due to the picture's raison d'être: a one-trick pony concerned solely with lack of commitment. Jan 16, 2018 Full Review Matt Singer The Rumpus Up in the Air is sentimental, but that doesn't mean it's simplistic. In fact, the movie plays at some interesting contradictions. It is a genuinely funny movie about genuinely depressing times. Sep 18, 2017 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand Where 'Up in the Air' soars is in the way it captures Ryan's rhythm, the elegant precision of his comforting ritual, the smooth familiarity of his life-in-transition existence. Oct 6, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review A painful, intelligent, and darkly comic drama that will affect you regardless of how you choose to interpret it. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 28, 2023 Full Review Dan DiNicola The Daily Gazette (Schenectady, NY) Clooney's portrayal if this terminal man is exemplary on every count. He is a man of and for our times. So too is this year's finest movie. Mar 22, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      alan g Not very good. Predictable sex comedy. George Clloney finally acts and shows some emotion. Waste of Anna Kendrick. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/17/24 Full Review Cem Y Sincere and different. One of the fine examples of the genre. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Alec C Sometimes in order to do business, you've got to be up close and personal! A corporate down-sizer takes a naive new coworker on a trip to show her the importance of being in-person, while beginning to question his own philosophy as he begins a relationship with a fellow traveler. Smart and witty, this business flick manages to find its way into our hearts with its relatable characters and unique perspective! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Chickaboom Anna Kendrick is superb in this movie. Great actress. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Joshua C This was more than I thought it would be. Propelled by some great lead performances, Jason Reitman's Up in the Air manages to blend just enough humour and heart to make for an enjoyable film about the value of human relationships and how they are essential for leading a purposeful life. Really well-done. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Sam C A really enjoyable watch, with an emotional core that'll stick with you long after it's finished.
