Up In The Air (Film)

There are no special privileges awarded by American Airlines for reaching 10 million miles as depicted in the movie – this was a case of artistic license by the filmmakers. However, American (like almost all major airlines with frequent flier programs) does offer special status for reaching 1 million miles. As of 2009, it is estimated that about 400,000 frequent fliers worldwide have reached this plateau in at least one airline’s program. In addition, many airlines – American included – have special invitation-only programs for their most valued customers, usually CEOs who can direct a lot of revenue their way. Perks include faster check-in, escorts to make close connections, and in rare cases free private flights to replace canceled ones.

A large amount of the people we see fired in the film are not actors but people who were recently laid off. The filmmakers put out ads in St. Louis and Detroit posing as a documentary crew looking to document the effect of the recession. When people showed up, they were instructed to treat the camera like the person who fired them and respond as they did or use the opportunity to say what they wished they had. A way to discern who are the actors and who are the real people is that the real people do not have dialogue with George Clooney or Anna Kendrick, as they were shot separately. Jason Reitman did this intentionally, feeling that the real people would freak out Clooney and Kendrick.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

Sean O’Connell: Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

Movies That Makes Us Want To Travel.

One of the best travel films for me. This is remake from a classic film. Directed by Ben Stiller. He’s been to Greenland, Iceland and Afghanistan. But based on imdb most scenes shot on Iceland.


Walter Mitty: When are you going to take it?
Sean O’Connell: Sometimes I don’t. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.
Walter Mitty: Stay in it?
Sean O’Connell: Yeah. Right there. Right here.


Walter Mitty: To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

Sean O’Connell: They call the snow leopard the ghost cat. Never lets itself be seen.
Walter Mitty: Ghost cat.
Sean O’Connell: Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

Cheryl: Life is about courage and going into the unknown.

Walter Mitty: Hey, do you know our motto?
Ted Hendricks: Life… I’m lovin’ it.
Walter Mitty: That’s not it. That’s McDonald’s. This thing that you do, Ted, where you come into a place and push people out, you should know those people worked really hard to build this magazine. They believed in the motto. And I get it, you’ve got your marching orders and you have to do what you have to do, but you don’t have to be such a d*ck. Put that on a plaque and hang it at your next job.

Cheryl: I wanted to tell you, that song “Major Tom” and that beard guy… he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. That song is about courage and going into the unknown. It’s a cool song.

Sean O’Connell: Number 25 is my best ever, the quintessence of life, I think. I trust you’ll get it where it needs to go, you always do.

Todd Maher: How was the… daydreaming going?
Walter Mitty: Lately less.
Todd Maher: Good. Less is good!

Todd Maher: I pictured you as this little gray piece of paper, but now I see you and it’s like Indiana Jones decided to become the lead singer of The Strokes or something.

Helicopter Pilot: Don’t cheat on your lady, man, when you live in a country that only has eight people in it.

Walter Mitty: [taking on cell phone while climbing a mountain] Hey Todd, I’m gonna keep this short. I have to make oxygen choices.

Cheryl: God, you’re noteworthy!
Walter Mitty: I just live by the ABCs: Adventurous, Brave, Creative.

Todd Maher: How does that Cinnabon taste?
Walter Mitty: Great.
Todd Maher: That’s frosted heroin, what you’re eating, my friend.

Walter Mitty: [with Spanish accent] The ice, yes? She moves like a woman. I’m Walter. Mitty.
Cheryl: Cheryl. Melhoff. Where have you been?
Walter Mitty: Testing the limits of the human spirit.
Cheryl: I’d like to climb your hair, test that out.
Walter Mitty: Perhaps I can contact you, possibly through my poetry falcon.

Walter Mitty: I haven’t really been anywhere noteworthy or mentionable.

Walter Mitty: And I get it. You got your marching orders… and you have to do what you have to do. But you don’t have to be such a dick. Put that on a plaque, and hang it at your next job.
