Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Cruise is at the top of his form, and Gooding makes a brilliant opponent.
- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Rotten: Lauded as a witty moral fable with a revelatory performance from its star, this romantic comedy is in fact meretricious, manipulative and reactionary.
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Thursday, February 9, 2006
Fresh: This is the kind of movie that reminds me why I started reviewing in the first place.
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Jerry Maguire is an absolutely terrific movie. It is fueled by two great performances from Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr. It is a movie that is very funny and very entertaining, but possibly a touch to sentimental.

After being cussed by his client's kid, successful sports agent Jerry Maguire gets a moral wake-up call. Developing a conscience all of a sudden, he gets excited and feels encouraged to write down his thoughts. He writes a memo titled "The Things We Think And Not Say" which proved to be an axe he hit on his own foot. Though he's applauded for his memo, his boss gets pissed off because his memo speaks of getting less clients and less money. As a result, he fires him after a week. A single mother Dorothy is the only employee from the staff that decides to go with Jerry. Jerry struggles to get clients, but doesn't succeed except for maintaining a single client: Rod Tidwell. Thereafter, it's the usual: Dorothy and Jerry falling in love and how Jerry gets back in business. IMO, Jerry Magurie is a passable drama movie. Surprisingly, I liked Tom Cruise's acting and found Cuba Gooding Jr's and Renee's performance somewhat unconvincing. If you haven't watched this as yet, I feel that while the movie won't make your day, it surely would help you kill time*. * provided you've got nothing better to do!!!
