Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Up In The Air...
This well-crafted film, which presents thought provoking messages about human relationships, has the unfortunate inclusion of sexual content and language. An unmarried couple is seen going into a hotel room and preparing to have sex (we briefly see her naked from the rear and he is seen without a shirt). It is implied they have other sexual rendezvous as well. A couple of crude sexual comments are made using slang anatomical terms. Two people break into a school by opening a window with a credit card—no damage is done. A man talks of using a gun after getting fired. A depressed woman threatens to jump off a bridge (it is later revealed that she has died after carrying out this plan). A woman has an extramarital affair. Language includes at least 15 sexual expletives, a couple of other crude names for sex, scatological slang, and terms of deity. Social drinking is portrayed.
