Critic Reviews for Up in the Air

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

(Clooney and Farmiga) keep the wit and chemistry bouncing back and forth like a modern-day Tracy and Hepburn, if you can picture Hepburn sashaying across a hotel room wearing nothing but a man's necktie looped around her waist.

George Clooney is amazing in this even though he wasn't even born at the time it was made!
