Kindred spirits in the world of frequent flyers

Up in the Air

Rating 5

Manages that toughest of balancing acts: tickling the funny bone and tugging the heartstrings in equal measures.

You won't have a similar response

All About Steve

Rating 0

Apart from the utterly humourless script, ludicrous premise and frequent jumps of logic, the film also suffers from the charmless performances of its two leading stars.

Streep - Perfectly cast here

It's Complicated

Rating 4

Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin are perfectly cast as the couple who love to hate each other but then can't help liking each other when it comes down to it.
