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.
December 13, 1996
Everything about Jerry, about Dorothy, about her unbearably cute son and her unbearably overbearing sister, is unconvincing and formulaic.

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.

February 9, 2006
Lauded as a witty moral fable with a revelatory performance from its star, this romantic comedy is in fact meretricious, manipulative and reactionary.

Disingenuous

April 25, 2001
The movie takes a refreshing stance in favor of family life, but the repetitious story moves erratically and runs on much too long.

I just couldn't buy into the redemption of Jerry Maguire.

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.
January 1, 2000
Jerry Maguire is slick but not quite believable.
April 12, 2002
There's much to admire in Jerry Maguire, except Jerry Maguire.

March 26, 2007
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.

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

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.
September 11, 2017
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.

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.

January 1, 2000
[Crowe] successfully balances one of the best performances of Tom Cruise's career with a clutch of superb supporting turns. Add a witty and tear-jerking script and the result is an unusual romantic comedy drama.

It's Cameron Crowe's finest hour.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 24, 2016
This comedy has everything going for it, not least of which is Cruise's most appealing performance since Risky Business.
January 1, 2000
There are a couple of moments in Jerry Maguire when you want to hug yourself with delight.
