Ben Affleck portrays Gavin, an attorney driving dangerously to a court hearing.  A client has passed, and Gavin must present paperwork verifying his firm's inheritance of the man's estate.  Doyle(Samuel L. Jackson) is an alcoholic insurance salesman who's also late for court.  He must present paperwork to secure custody of his two children.

When their cars collide, Gavin hands Doyle a blank check and flees; both men lose their paperwork in the accident.  Furious that Gavin would not file an insurance claim, the salesman initiates a vicious cycle of revenge.  In the end, however, both men will reevaluate their values, despite never meeting again.

Changing Lanes was nominated for a Teen Choice Award, and earned $94 million at the box office.
