Expressive speech acts are one of the five basic
categories of speech acts identified by Searle (1976). The category
of expressive speech acts has traditionally proven elusive of
definition in contrast to other types of speech acts. This might
explain why this group of speech acts has been less
researched.This study aims to describe the expressive speech acts
performedin Up in the Air movie. Likewise, it will find out how
often the expressive speech act performed, and what kind of
expressive speech act used in the movie. This study used
qualitative method in which data collection were done by
watching the movie, analyzing the body movement and the
dialogues of each character, reading the script and library
research. The results of the study showed that there are eleven
kinds of expressive speech act found in the movie, namely
expressing apology, expressing thanks, expressing sympathy,
expressing attitudes, expressing greeting, expressing wishes,
expressing joy, expressing likes, expressing dislikes, expressing
volition, ande expressing xclamations. The forms of expressive
