This is a wonderful movie about aritraffic controllers, friendship, affairs, and jealousy. Angelina doesn't have as big of a part in this movie as I like, But I would still give this movie an A.

Here is what the cover has to say:
In the tradition of Grosse Pointe Blank comes an unconventional comedy about two air traffic controllers whose intense rivalry and penchant for one-upmanship causes hilarious havoc with their careers, their marriages - and the planes in their airspace! 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. Co-starring Cate Blanchett and Angelina Jolie, Pushing Tin is "one of a kind.... a high-flying, free-spirited, wildly funny blast of originality."
