Comment
George Clooney spends his life flying around America doing his job of firing people from their jobs when the company does not want to do it themsleves. He has no friends and his only ambition is to gain a large number of air miles. His life is challenged when the company brings in a young woman (Anna Kendrick) who suggests that instead of flying all over the country they could do it easier via a video link. He takes her on a trip to show her how it is really done. He also meets a an apparently like minded woman (Vera Farmiga) who also spends her life travelling. There are good performances from george Clooney as the loner, Vera Farmiga as the charming woman who is not what she portrays and Anna Kendrick as the young woman learning about the harsh realities of life.
