If Up in the Air was a drink, it would be a can of 7UP served at room temperature that has been open on the table for 30 minutes – you think it’s going to be refreshing, but instead it’s a tad sickly and a little bit flat.
If it was a meal it would be a Sainsbury’s microwavable macaroni cheese – you think it’s a naughty treat but it leaves you unsatisfied, in need of something more substantial, and craving something of real authentic quality.
But some people fall for it. They quaff the 7UP and smack their lips, wolf down the creamy pasta in front of the telly without really thinking about it, and rub their bellies thinking they have done rather well for themselves. Give it an award. Invite their friends over for tea and serve it to them.
