Combining drama, comedy, and romance, Jerry Maguire was a critical and commercial success built on an original script by writer/director Cameron Crowe and an Oscar-nominated performance by Tom Cruise. Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) is an agent with a major sports management firm. He's enthusiastic, successful, a great negotiator and people like him.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Smartly written and boasting a sensational cast, Cameron Crowe's shrewdly observed third feature also gives Tom Cruise one of his very best roles..."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"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
"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."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Even Cruise can't capsize Cameron Crowe's entertaining romantic drama."
‑ , Film4
"Surely the film could have been shorter, but this unabashed Hollywood exercise tricked me into liking it."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"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."
‑ Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"Disarming acting, colorful writing and true generosity of spirit keep it right on track."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"competently made parallel plotted film whose buddy sports film elements outshine its rom-com aspects."
‑ Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
"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."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Both sides of the story, the sports and the romance, mesh well."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"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."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"There's much to admire in Jerry Maguire, except Jerry Maguire."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Tom Cruise is in top form playing Jerry Maguire, a slick sports agent with a heart."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
""Jerry Maguire" doesn't stop until it shows you the quan."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Tom Cruise give his best performance yet."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
