The movie takes a dive at the end, but it's wonderful fun before that.

Can't really answer why this one got made. It's very uninteresting.

A very impressive film with its serious treatment of the difficult art of transforming hatred.

Pushing Tin overshoots the runway by the equivalent of at least one of the Brothers Charles' better tv episodes.

The thought that real-life air traffic controllers are anything like the folks in Pushing Tin is enough to make me travel on Amtrak

It placed all the stress problems on the laps of the controllers' twisted personal lives.

Pushing Tin bids for originality by focusing on an offbeat profession. Every other aspect is pretty stale, though, from the smart-alecky characters to the romantic-triangle plot.

A fast-paced, twisty-turny, high-fiving, but ultimately spiraling disaster of a movie!

I liked most of what I saw, but it was also difficult not to acknowledge how much stronger it might have been with just one more screenplay rewrite.

An original premise is made into something far too conventional.

Predictable.

Contrived, meandering, cliched and just plain preposterous.

It plays like a magazine article: some interesting facts, no drama. Not many laughs either, in case director Mike Newell thought he was making a comedy.

In settling for caricatures and contrivance, Pushing Tin is closer to the sitcom.
Gary Thompson
Philadelphia Daily News

A disappointing movie from Mike Newell, whose eye for offbeat material fails him here.

As pre-packaged as airplane food!
