The dialogue is superb, bringing these relatable characters and their grounded situations an extraordinary sense of authenticity and hilarity.

Jerry Maguire offers the best of both worlds: romance and sports.
February 22, 2019
It's an easy charmer that manages to avoid the paint-by-numbers traps most romantic comedies fall into. Cruise should make more movies like this and Cameron Crowe should make more movies, period.

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.

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.
August 24, 2016
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.
August 24, 2016
Cruise gives perhaps his most appealing performance ever in what is arguably his best movie.
August 24, 2016
Unlike Mission Impossible, Jerry Maguire gives Cruise something to work with... He takes to it with zest.
August 24, 2016
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.
September 7, 2011
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.
July 6, 2010
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.
February 7, 2009
Tom Cruise is in top form playing Jerry Maguire, a slick sports agent with a heart.
