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.
April 28, 2001
Debased sitcom-style filmmaking.
Full Review | Original Score: short
January 1, 2000
A four-character story with four characters worth watching!

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

January 1, 2000
Pushing Tin loses track of itself, and the source of its dramatic, manic energy.
January 1, 2000
The film doesn't know whether to take itself seriously or play it for laughs.
January 1, 2000
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!

Occasionally funny but mostly interesting throughout.

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

January 1, 2000
Mediocre scripting and direction!
January 1, 2000
Pushing Tin overshoots the runway by the equivalent of at least one of the Brothers Charles' better tv episodes.

January 1, 2000
Droll, relatively lifeless.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
January 1, 2000
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
Offers high energy, a fascinating backdrop and a top-flight cast, but has an unfortunate tendency to veer off the runway.

A primo example of what classy commercial filmmaking can be!
