Ryan Bingham is a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles, and just after he's met the frequent-traveller woman of his dreams.
When Ryan is pinning his first picture to the honeymoon board, the photo to the right of it is of the silhouette of the windmill DeZwaan in Holland, Michigan. The photo is pinned to Champaign, Illinois so it it one state south from its real location. See more »
After the rehearsal dinner, Ryan is told to turn up around 5pm for the wedding to start at 5.30pm. In February, sunset is between 5.04pm and 5.42pm for Waupaca, so it would be dark outside, however, when the wedding takes place and into the dinner itself, it is clearly light outside. See more »

This film is about a man who fires people for a living. His world becomes upside down when his job is radically changed by a newly recruited young fresh graduate.
"Up in the Air" is a well made film. The plot focuses on character development and emotional changes of the characters. It is not easy to make characters interesting and memorable, but "Up in the Air" does just that. Both the characters of George Clooney and Anna Kendrick have strongly divergent attitudes and personalities, but they have great chemistry and change each other slowly but surely. How they radically shake each others core belief is engagingly told. I enjoyed watching "Up in the Air" a lot, as it tells an engaging story of self discovery.
