Ryan Bingham enjoys living out of a suitcase for his job, travelling around the country firing people, but finds that lifestyle threatened by the presence of a potential love interest, and a new hire.
Co-Writer and Director Jason Reitman stated that if George Clooney had passed on the role of Ryan Bingham, he would have re-written the part for Steve Martin. Reitman claimed that the movie would have become "much more like Lost in Translation (2003) was for Bill Murray."
Jim it's Marriage, it's one of the most beautiful things on Earth, it's what people aspired.
Jim Miller: Well you never got married...
Ryan Bingham: That's true...
Jim Miller: I mean, you never even tried.
Ryan Bingham: Uh, it's hard to define "tried'.
When they crash the tech party, Ryan enters wearing a blue suit and then is shown partying in a blue casual shirt and khaki slacks.
Over the end credits, the camera glides over the clouds. Much like the view from a plane.
