USA 2009, 108 minutes
Dir. Jason Reitman
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Comedy

Topics: Aviation, Business & Economics, Mid-life.


Aroview: A cautionary business tale wrapped in a frisky romantic comedy, with George Clooney starring as a compulsive traveller whose job it is to dismiss workers on behalf of their recession-struck employers.

Now more than just a pretty face, the sparkly-eyed star again attaches himself to an accessible entertainment with weighty contemporary concerns, and the director too returns to the confident territory of his business-ethics comedy, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING. Matching Clooney's smart sweet-talk, Vera Farmiga makes a vivacious gender-opposite, while Anna Kendrick's uptight new-kid-on-the-block provides a hilarious third wheel. As for the characters, so for the viewer - lots of carefree fun to be had the night before, but with a sobering message to be faced in the morning.
