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.

This comedy has everything going for it, not least of which is Cruise's most appealing performance since Risky Business.

Cruise's relationship with Zellweger's character is fascinating, far deeper and more honest than the usual cookie-cutter romance.

It's Cameron Crowe's finest hour.

The halting romance between Maguire and Dorothy -- he fearing intimacy, she admiring his budding humanity -- is one of the film's surpassing pleasures. The excellent supporting cast is another.

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.

It's hard to believe that this frantic, self-congratulatory affair was written and directed by Mr. Crowe, the man who did Say Anything and Singles, two films notable for their modesty and tact.

We've been down this path of self-discovery with Cruise before, but Crowe's movie is a lot less predictable than you'd expect.

[It] may be referred to as "the Tom Cruise sports agent movie," but really is an exciting romance and cautionary yuppie tale. And the actor who steals the movie is a name you have never heard of -- Renee Zellweger.

Some amusing stuff about sports agentry drowns in the emotional shallows of Jerry Maguire.

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.

The megabucks actor may have made M:I because it was expected of him, but his mission here was to learn something about himself-through acting, no less-and along the way he picked up something we've never seen in him before: passion.

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.

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

TIME Magazine

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.
