Ja­son Reit­man’s dark-ish com­edy has plenty to say, plus an ap­peal­ing cast ob­vi­ously rel­ish­ing a script (by Reit­man and Shel­don Turner, from Wal­ter Kim’s novel) that re­ally has the smarts. Ryan Bing­ham (Ge­orge Clooney) is a “ca­reer tran­si­tion coun­sel­lor” (read cor­po­rate hatchet man) who flies around the US fir­ing peo­ple. A one-night stand with Alex ( Vera Farmiga) turns into a lit­tle more and Ryan is sud­denly sad­dled with Natalie (a scene-steal­ing Anna Ken­drick), who will rock his world.
