Movie Info

Jerry Maguire is a man who knows the score. As a top agent at Sports Management International, Jerry is unquestionably a master of his universe. Trouble is -- Jerry's mind, mouth and soul are usually on automatic pilot. He's good at friendship, but (as his numerous ex-girlfriends testify) bad at intimacy. Still, there's absolutely nothing wrong with Jerry that a sudden dose of failure can't cure. A week after spontaneously writing a stirring, visionary mission statement for SMI entitled 'The … More

Smartly written and boasting a sensational cast, Cameron Crowe's shrewdly observed third feature also gives Tom Cruise one of his very best roles...

Top Critic

There is a recognizable ordinariness about the way these people stumble in and out of trouble, in and out of grace -- an ambiguous note, at once tart and sweet, knowing and innocent, in their relationships.

Cruise seems to have grown as much as Jerry, for he brings gentleness, warmth and lightheartedness to this role, qualities that we haven't seen since he played air guitar in his underpants in Risky Business 13 years ago.

Lauded as a witty moral fable with a revelatory performance from its star, this romantic comedy is in fact meretricious, manipulative and reactionary.

Cameron Crowe's romantic comedy is well acted by Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr. (in an Oscar-winning turn), but as a tale of redemption, the movie is not too deep and goes out of its way to satisfy viewers' expectations of a happy ending.

competently made parallel plotted film whose buddy sports film elements outshine its rom-com aspects.

Tom Cruise is in top form playing Jerry Maguire, a slick sports agent with a heart.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Even Cruise can't capsize Cameron Crowe's entertaining romantic drama.

Full Review… | July 31, 2008

A meandering and deeply shallow tale of spiritual redemption, built around the Teflon persona of Tom Cruise and driven by the conviction that all emotions worth expressing can be summed up in pop songs.

Funny and warmhearted, this romantic comedy has it all: a gentle love story, crackling dialogue, social satire and uplifting themes.

Sports-agent epic about humanity in the face of commercialism still stands as Cruise's and Crowe's best work.

Audience Reviews for Jerry Maguire

Cameron Crowe's films always seemed to have a certain, personal atmosphere that emphasizes on human emotion, and its characters. I find his work to be quite underrated, and manage to always make some great, entertaining movies that have great meaning. With Jerry Maguire is a great film that boasts a well crafted story, and has some great performances from its lead actors, Tom Cruise and Renee Zellwegger. The film has some effective comedy elements mixed in with its dramatic elements, and add to that some great performances and engaging story, and you have a film that memorable from start to finish, and is one of Cameron Crowe's best films. I was skeptical about seeing this film, and I never wanted to really give it a chance, but I'm glad I did. Tom Cruise does some great work, and makes the film what it is. This film surprised me, and definitely exceeded my expectations. If you enjoy Cameron Crowes work, then you're going to enjoy this film. The story is well crafted and highly engaging from start to finish. Every actor here delivers top notch performances that make the film what it is. Jerry Maguire successfully blends two genres into film, effective comic relief and great dramatic moments rounds out the film to make something very enjoyable and is a movie well worth your time if you' want something humorous , yet serious at the same time. This is a near perfect film, one that is directed by a director who knows how to make terrific drama films because he makes them in a way that is quite personal, and it succeeds on many levels.

JERRY MAGUIRE is a fairly satisfying film. You'd be surprised how little it actually presents sports and its athletic nature, despite the plot revolving around the activity. Though there is a bit of exaggeration on Jerry's character, he is an interesting one to watch, especially when solidly acted by Tom Cruise. However funny and charismatic the film may be, it is not quite a classic. Yes, it is quotable in several places-all the above quotes originated in this film and their are more-and it shouldn't be legal to forget a scene as wonderfully made as Cuba's "Show Me the Money" telephone scene. As a whole, the film is a mixed bag, equally strewn with the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Having Humour, Romance, Drama and Sports all wrapped up into one breathtaking film, has never been established any better than the way that "Jerry Maguire" does it. Tom Cruise plays a business working in the sports industry. Once he finds himself in a rut, not sleeping and not gaining specific revenue, he quits his job to hold on to his last money-making opportunity, as the manager Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.). As he falls in love, meets new people, and falls apart many times over again, this film has many happy moments, along with many sentimental moments. There are powerhouse performances given by the entire cast, and a particular performance by Tom Cruise that I shall not easily forget! "Jerry Maguire" not only has heart, conviction, and it's own "stamina," but it tells a dry story as if it were the first time it had ever been told. This is one of the greatest films of all time in my book, and will be forever. This is a true classic!

All right, I'll tell you why you don't have your ten million dollars. Right now, you are a paycheck player. You play with your head, not your heart. In your personal life, heart. But when you get on the field it's all about what you didn't get. Who's to blame. Who won through the pass. Who's got the contract you don't. Who's not giving you your love. You know what, that is not what inspires people. That is not what inspires people! Shut up! Play the game, play it from your heart. And you know what, I'll show you the kwan. And that's the truth, man! That's the truth. Can you handle it? It's just a question between friends, you know. Oh, and when they call you 'shrimp,' I'm the one who defends you!

Hello. I'm looking for my wife. Alright. If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen. I'm not letting you get rid of me. How about that? This used to be my specialty. I was good in a living room. Send me in there, I'll do it alone. And now I just... I don't know...but our little company had a good night tonight. A really big night. But it wasn't complete, it wasn't nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn't share it with you. I couldn't hear your voice, or laugh about it with you. I missed my wife. We live in a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors, I love you. You complete me. And I just...
