Somewhat entertaining and worth watching. Over-rated by critics.

I thought this was an amazing movie. Anyone who rated it poorly did not understand the concept of the movie. It was not about the economy, and it wasn't supposed to be. It was about the lonely life of Ryan (played by George Clooney) He did an amazing job at his character, lost in a world where everything is supposed to be perfect. Everyone around him told him he had to be married, have kids, live

I am disappointed that I gave this movie further consideration because the academy and other reviews were so praising. I thought the plot idea seemed weak from the beginning and that is exactly what it turned out to be. Although it is very relevant about the state of the economy that does not make it in any way insightful. To make Clooney's character put a positive spin and be encouraging

Wonderful movie .... thoughtfully creative, yet lonely. Really shows how impersonal this technological age can be, tethered to lap tops, cell phones and PDA's, but at the same time, truly looking for a human connection.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Okay, yes, it's not a feel good, laugh till it hurts, romantic comedy or anything like *********** richly layered with heavy hearted emotion and character development through ******* entirity. Beautifully directed, skillfully crafted, and any thinking person would understand the quiet drama in the film.

It's rare for a movie to be at once so biting and so moving. If Ryan's future seems bleak, there's something exhilarating about a movie made with such clear-eyed intelligence. Full Review

Crisply funny and fleetly paced, it's in its quiet way one of the saddest things in the theaters all year. Full Review
A smart, alert, supremely entertaining movie. Full Review
Timeliness can be tricky to pull off convincingly in movies. It's tough to capture an era while it's still happening, yet Up in the Air does so brilliantly, with wit and humanity. Full Review
Full of clever one-liners, winning performances, and wistful indie music. It's impossible not to like it, which is precisely what's so annoying about it. Full Review
