Consensus: 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.

Dave Calhoun
Time Out

It's a pleasure to watch an adult American comedy that tries to deal with the real world, however much of a fantasy it carves from it.

From taxi to touchdown, Reitman knows how to get us to the next destination.

The Rumpus

Up in the Air is sentimental, but that doesn't mean it's simplistic. In fact, the movie plays at some interesting contradictions. It is a genuinely funny movie about genuinely depressing times.

At the end of the day, Up In The Air makes us think about the importance of having someone to come home to and how we define ourselves on the job.

Director Jason Reitman brings such splendid balance and nuance to Bingham's story that you can't hate the man; indeed you end up pitying him.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

Jason Reitman's dry, moving "comedy," based on the Walter Kirn novel, is a sly indictment of Corporate America, Marketing America and Frequent Flying America.

Tambay Obenson
Shadow and Act

The Jason Reitman-directed Up In The Air (an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Walter Kim) actually engaged me from start to finish, and dare I say, moved me.
