Our Score
Writer/director Cameron Crowe - who made the moving teenage romance Say Anything - here 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. Cruise plays Jerry Maguire, a sports agent who, guilt-ridden one night about how he and his colleagues treat sports stars as commodities, produces a mission statement that costs him his job. Cruise's relationships with his sole remaining client (a marvellous, Oscar-winning turn by Cuba Gooding Jr), the woman who stands by him (Renee Zellweger) and her adorable son (Jonathan Lipnicki) bring an infectious warmth to the film, which introduced the world to the catchphrase: "Show me the money!".

Summary

An idealistic sports agent produces a mission statement at work promising to treat clients fairly. Unfortunately, it costs him his job. Forced to set up an agency on his own, the only people prepared to stand by him are a lovelorn staff accountant and a footballer. Cameron Crowe's romantic comedy drama, with Tom Cruise, Renee Zellweger, Kelly Preston, Jonathan Lipnicki, and Cuba Gooding Jr, who won an Oscar for his performance.
