Is This A Line From 'Rush' Or A Lyric From Rush?

Posted: Updated:

"Rush," Ron Howard's new film about the real life rivalry between Formula One drivers Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), opens in New York and Los Angeles on Friday (with a wide release to follow next weekend). As it turns out, "Rush" has nothing to do with the Canadian rock band of the same name that is probably most known for their hit single, "Tom Sawyer."
