Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is a corporate axman, he comes in a fires people when the managers are too afraid to do it themselves. The nature of his work requires a lot of flying, short lived meetings in transit zones and he absolutely loves it, and he has a certain goal in mind. When the company tries a new approach to corporate downsizing he has to change his way and view of life. It’s full of cynicism and warmth. If you are familiar with Jason Reitman’s previous work, you’ll feel right at home, if you don’t : Get to it!
Disagree 100% with this rating. My daughter and I saw this together, and both agreed it was one of the worst, most depressing movies we’d ever need. Daughter’s comment was “Why would anyone even MAKE that movie?!?” -10 people liked this review.
