- I think that there needs to be a live action George Clooney film in IMAX. Hummina.
- I loved the way that the film began and ended with the silence during a flight, especially the way that the score ended and all you can hear is, like, air.
- Linda and I were digging on the "This Land Is Your Land", however, I said to her, "That is *not* how the song goes!"
- OK, I was really liking Vera Farmiga's character until that scene in Chicago. "You are a parentheses." Ooh, harsh, much?
- I love those shots of Clooney standing at the airports in front of the window and the big board, and the gorgeous aerial view of the different cities.
- How interesting that someone who minored in psychology would think that firing people through video conferencing would actually work well. Not that she had better success doing such while face-to-in-person-face.
- The scene where he's telling Anna Kendrick's character how to pack luggage was hilarious. As a semi-frequent traveler, I sometimes want to throw other travelers' stuff into the trash can like that. I know that it's difficult to pack lightly sometimes, but forget the pillows, people!
- Really interesting conversation between the women about what they look for in a guy at different ages. The hopeless romantic in me says, "You should never settle. I don't care how old you get. Regret can happen at any age."
- I think that Jason Bateman and J.K. Simmons must be Jason Reitman's go-to cast members / lucky charms.
- American Airlines: KA-CHING! I only wish that I actually liked that airline.
- It wasn't until the final song that I actually got the double meaning of the movie's title. Duh, Sherry.

Can I Put George Clooney in my Backpack?
Linda and I saw "Up In The Air" the other day after brunch at Mimi's and a little shopping to pass the time.
