Ryan Bingham enjoys living out of a suitcase for his job, travelling around the country firing people, but finds that lifestyle threatened by the presence of a potential love interest, and a new hire presenting a new business model.
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.
The statement "I'll say" is used three times in the movie, each time by a different person. See more »
The movie shows Ryan going in the AA first class line, checking in at a kiosk and then being greeted by a counter agent. They do not put kiosks directly in front of the first class check-in agent. If there is one there (which is rare), it will be off to the side. Finally, the whole point of using the kiosk is to NOT talk to the person at the counter, so even if he had used the machine, he would not be greeted by anyone. 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.
