Nick and the other boys (and Vicki Lewis) working the hotspot of air traffic control in New York are impressed with themselves, to say the least. They thrive on the no-room-for-error, fast-paced job and let it infect their lives. The undisputed king of pushing tin, "The Zone" Falzone, rules his workplace and his wedded life with the same short-attention span that gets planes where they need to be in the nick of time. That is, until Russell Bell, a new transfer with a reputation for recklessness but a record of pure perfection shatters the tensely-held status quo. The game of one-upmanship between the two flies so high as to lead Nick into Russell's bed with his wife. His sanity slipping just as fast as his hold on #1, Cusack's controller is thrown out-of-control when Thornton's wanderer quietly leaves town. Nick must now find a way to regain his sanity and repair his marriage before he breaks down completely.Written by
Angelina Jolie had just shaved her head for the dying scenes in Gia (1998). She wore a wig in this film. See more »
Several scenes show characters in the movie standing beneath landing jet airliners and being tumbled by the "turbulence." In fact, the downwash from the wings of a jet airliner during landing will not send a person tumbling, and won't have much effect at all other than to muss up the hair a bit. The jet blast from an airliner taking off is dangerous and can send people and vehicles behind it tumbling, but there is no particular danger beneath a landing aircraft. See more »
Oh, you really think the pilot is controlling this plane? That would really scare me.

I liked this film because as a controller of trains at London Kings Cross station I can put myself in the characters shoes.Where I work is very stressful and every person does what they can to channel stress in only the way they can. The Air Traffic Controllers portrayed in the film and the way they speak about the Pilots are the same as WE talk about the train drivers. A wonderful blend of people being thrust together in the workplace who are so different results in total humor which is well worth watching. So if you haven't watched this movie, then watch it now because it was soooooooo funny......
