Movie Info

When slick sports agent Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) has a crisis of conscience, he pens a heartfelt company-wide memo that promptly gets him fired. Desperate to hang on to the athletes that he represents, Jerry starts his own management firm, with only single mother Dorothy Boyd (Renee Zellweger) joining him in his new venture. Banking on their sole client, football player Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.), Jerry and Dorothy begin to fall in love as they struggle to make their business work.

  • On the jock front, Gooding is so believable in his role as Jerry's selfish, pea-brained, wide receiver client that the Dallas Cowboys might consider signing him to complement Michael Irvin.

  • Zellweger's rumpled, anti-star quality plays in perfect contrast to Preston's buff and polish. She redeems Jerry Maguire and Tom Cruise, too by making him human again.

  • I like Crowe's movies; I mostly enjoyed this one.

  • Cruise is very good in small moments with Dorothy's son, played charmingly by Jonathan Lipnicki, but in some of the bigger scenes his performance is so wrong-headed you can't imagine what he was thinking.

  • Cruise gives perhaps his most appealing performance ever in what is arguably his best movie.

  • Unlike Mission Impossible, Jerry Maguire gives Cruise something to work with... He takes to it with zest.

    Centering a dramedy around a character's paradigm shift is nothing new (nor was it new in 1996), but "Jerry Maguire" succeeds in being somewhat more original in how it presents the near impossibility of that kind of change. The ending may be a little too optimistic, but just about everything else that precedes it has a maturity and thoughtfulness you don't often get in films of this kind.

    It was so heart warming that it burnt out a fourth star on the rating. A good premise and early start but this film ultimately get mired in faux sentimentality. You can see why the Oscar voters loved it.

    "Show me the money!" From writer/director Cameron Crowe comes the touching romantic comedy Jerry Maguire. When a crisis of conscience costs a sports agent his job, he's forced to start over again with a single client and a plucky assistant who believes in his cause. Tom Cruise, Renee Zellweger, and Cuba Gooding Jr. lead the cast and give solid performances. The writing is also pretty good, and stays away from the usual tropes of sports films and romantic comedies. Still, there are some extraneous elements and weaknesses in the plot. A sincere and entertaining film, Jerry Maguire is heartwarming and fun.

    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.
