Reviews
Mine: All right. Not great. Cameron Crowe has done much better. Maybe my problem with this movie is I could care less about sports agents or the people they represent. Zellweger is cute and effective. Gooding is enjoyable. Cruise is passable. Nothing special.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Cocky, super-successful sports agent has a crisis of conscience, which costs him his job and all but one of his clients--the most difficult one on the roster (Gooding, in a charismatic, Oscar-winning performance). His only ally is a young woman (with a little boy) who's devoted to him professionally and personally. Intelligent, original, layered screenplay (by Crowe) with characters who are actually interesting and three-dimensional. Cruise's earnestness is perfect for the part, and Zellweger is a real find. Various sports figures play themselves; Beau Bridges appears unbilled. Only complaint: It goes on too long. Some prints have a faux athletic shoe commercial at the end.

I'm not a big Zellwiger person. She wasn't that great. It was hard to be sympathetic to Jerry Maguire, he was such a jerk. I honestly didn't care what happened to him.
