Pushing Tin loses track of itself, and the source of its dramatic, manic energy.

A four-character story with four characters worth watching!

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

Seems to devolve into a season's worth of hokey compacted episodes, with every 15 minutes showcasing a dramatic device more outlandishly cheesy than the last!

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.

John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton take hold of a scene and shake it awake and make it live.
