Plot Summary

Nick Falzone (John Cusack) is the busiest, and the best, air traffic controller on Long Island - until Russell Bell (Billy Bob Thornton) roars into town like a motorcycle-riding cowboy. Fueled by caffeine and machismo, the two men embark upon an uproarious contest of wit and wills that can ultimately only have one winner.

Fresh: A lively flight! – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A slick, fast film! – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Pushing Tin loses track of itself, and the source of its dramatic, manic energy. – Norman Green,, Jun 24, 2010
