A very fun film to watch as you go through the highs and lows. A must watch just for the memorable quotes of the movie.

Not as loathsome as most of these kind of contrived schmaltzy, "feel-good" movies but hardly a classic.

Jerry Maguire is one of my favorite movies, and my second favorite Cameron Crowe film, after Almost Famous. Here, Crowe tugs at the heartstrings, creating a believable world of sports agentry and maneuvering his characters with poise and care. Also contains a powerhouse performance by Cuba Gooding Jr. and some of the best lines of dialogue ever.

Jerry Maguire Review
By Benjamin Hampton
The movie Jerry Maguire reaches out to many audiences since it incorporates comedy and sports into a romantic drama filled with life lessons. Personally, I have two different views of the movie.
