A desperate man trying to make it on its own, a love story waiting to happen, movie lines that have stood the test of time and add an egotistic maniac, Cameron Crowe has a masterpiece waiting to explode on your TV screens if you have not been fortunate enough to have seen Jerry Maguire already, then I advise that you go see it now.

Written, produced and directed by Cameron Crowe, Jerry Maguire was received with a number of accolades, one being Best Supporting Actor for Cuba Gooding Jr. in the Academy Awards, Chicago Film critics association, Screen Actors Guild and Satellite Awards.

The movie launched Renée Zellweger into the limelight, and it is one of the best written movies I have ever seen. Jerry Maguire spawned several popular quotations, including "Show me the money!", "You complete me", "Help me help you", and "You had me at 'hello'". These lines are largely attributed to Cameron Crowe.
The great thing about Jerry Maguire will be unique to each viewer, is it the trust bond between Jerry (Tom Cruise) and Rod (Cuba Gooding Jr.) or the love between Rod and Marcee (Regina King) or the romantic story between Jerry and Dorothy (Renée Zellweger). Whatever it is that you like, the movie is full of it.

Here is the plot, Jerry is a sports agent who developed a moral epiphany one night; which led him to write it all down. Still in the drive he went ahead printed it and sent it to all the members staff in his place of work. He got fired for expressing it; he decides to put his philosophy to the test as an independent.

He tried all his best to keep his clients, but only one stayed with him, Rod Tidwell an ego maniac, it all seems rosy at first, and then it all went downhill for Jerry.

He then realized what mattered most in life.

Before Jerry Maguire, Cuba was known for his movie Boyz n the Hood where he played Tre, he also was in a Few Good Men with Tom Cruise. Cruise however was coming from a breakthrough role in his movie Mission Impossible, to star in this one, which is in par with MI.

After Jerry Maguire both actors have grown to be a well-known name in the movie industry with Tom sticking to the high rollers and Cuba staying with direct-to-dvd releases from 2009 to 2011.

This movie is a most see, so don’t chicken out, go to the nearest store and pick this DVD.
