5 stars out of 5 -- "UP IN THE AIR has got genuine movie star wattage working on all cylinders....Director and co-writer Jason Reitman follows up his Oscar-nominated work on JUNO with this sharp, funny, perceptive comedy that represents his most mature and personal work to date." - 09/06/2009 Box Office


"Boasting one of George Clooney's strongest performances, the film seems like a surefire awards contender....It seduces with some of the most darkly hilarious moments to grace the screen in years." - 09/06/2009 Hollywood Reporter


"This is movie-star acting of the sort no one else today can bring off. Clooney and Vera Farmiga, as Ryan's sexy counterpart in corporate travel, are great together..." - 10/02/2009 Entertainment Weekly


"[UP IN THE AIR] is a step forward -- both in the way it gets the very best out of actors and in its ability to make things funny without sacrificing honesty and intelligence." - 12/04/2009 Los Angeles Times


4 stars out of 4 -- "Artfully blending a breezy, blithe spirit with a darker social satire, UP IN THE AIR has one of the year's sharpest scripts and an exceptional cast." - 12/04/2009 USA Today

"[T]he brilliance of the central performance is its expansiveness....[Clooney] creates a contemporary character we haven't seen before, a blithely self-ironic spirit who knows, but doesn't care, that a crucial piece of himself has gone missing." - 12/04/2009 Wall Street Journal


4 stars out of 4 -- "UP IN THE AIR takes the trust people once had in their jobs and pulls out the rug. It is a film for this time." - 12/01/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"[A] smart, alert, supremely entertaining movie featuring Clooney at his suavest..." - 12/04/2009 Washington Post


"Jason Reitman's direction nicely translates the seductive appeal of sterile public places while letting the assured performances do much of the work." -- Grade: B - 12/03/2009 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "UP IN THE AIR is a defining movie for these perilous times....The best and boldest American comedy of the year." - 12/10/2009 Rolling Stone

Ranked #3 in USA Today's "Top Ten Films Of 2009." - 12/31/2009 USA Today


4 stars out of 5 -- "While, certainly, capable of a dark humour and moments of extraordinary bleakness, it's also commendable for another superb performance from Clooney." - 01/15/2010 Uncut


5 stars out of 5 -- "[Reitman] is able to maintain that toughest of balances: the lightly profound, an unfussy, impeccably performed, romantic entertainment able to say something important about its times." - 01/08/2010 Empire
