Cameron Crowe, Tom Cruise, and Cuba Gooding Jr. are salesmen, and we're consumers, buying emotional truth. That's a brave message for a commercial film to have. Too bad it's unintentional.

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

Jerry Maguire is, ultimately, a failed idealism.

It talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. Or, in other words, it simply doesn't have heart.

There's much to admire in Jerry Maguire, except Jerry Maguire.

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.

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

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

Surely the film could have been shorter, but this unabashed Hollywood exercise tricked me into liking it.

I'd love to see more movies like Jerry Maguire, movies that show us that making a life for oneself is not only is it possible but preferable.

Here is a remarkable exception to the proven principle that all movies with any scene taking place at a football game are stinkers.
