Pete Hammond Up In The Air is certain to draw hearty crowds and major award season attention. It deserves it and should stand up as one of 2009’s best pictures.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Peter Travers People I meet always ask if there is something wonderful to see at the movies. Now I have an answer. See Up in the Air, a transporting comedy from slump-resistant director Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking, Juno) that jet-fuels the Oscar race, rattles with romantic turbulence, rumbles with the terror of living in a cratering economy and takes a never-better George Clooney on the ride of his acting life.
C. Fuchs One of the best offerings of 2009 and clearly one of my favorites, one should book a flight with Up in the Air as soon as possible and then enjoy both the journey and the intellectual and emotional destination to which it will take you.
Tomatometer Led by charismatic performances by its three leads, director Jason Reitman delivers a smart blend of humor and emotion with just enough edge for mainstream audiences.
