Cruise brilliantly portrays a man on the brink of losing his marbles and his grip on reality as he knows it: he's hilarious, sad and desperate but still seems charming in this 1996 movie.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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

August 24, 2016
This comedy has everything going for it, not least of which is Cruise's most appealing performance since Risky Business.
August 24, 2016
Cruise's relationship with Zellweger's character is fascinating, far deeper and more honest than the usual cookie-cutter romance.
August 24, 2016
It's Cameron Crowe's finest hour.

August 24, 2016
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 gives perhaps his most appealing performance ever in what is arguably his best movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 24, 2016
Unlike Mission Impossible, Jerry Maguire gives Cruise something to work with... He takes to it with zest.

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.
August 24, 2016
[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.

Brashly engaging.

December 15, 2010
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.
July 2, 2009
competently made parallel plotted film whose buddy sports film elements outshine its rom-com aspects.
Full Review | Original Score: 71/100
February 7, 2009
Tom Cruise is in top form playing Jerry Maguire, a slick sports agent with a heart.

July 31, 2008
Smartly written and boasting a sensational cast, Cameron Crowe's shrewdly observed third feature also gives Tom Cruise one of his very best roles...
July 31, 2008
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.
July 31, 2008
Even Cruise can't capsize Cameron Crowe's entertaining romantic drama.
March 26, 2007
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.
