Everybody loved him... Everybody disappeared.
Jerry Maguire used to be a typical sports agent: willing to do just about anything he could to get the biggest possible contracts for his clients, plus a nice commission for himself. Then, one day, he suddenly has second thoughts about what he's really doing. When he voices these doubts, he ends up losing his job and all of his clients, save Rod Tidwell, an egomaniacal football player.

Jerry Maguire was a much better movie for the first third. I really wasn't a huge fan of the Renee Zellweger's character or her acting and that detracted from my enjoyment of the movie a lot, especially as "romance" played a more prominent part further in. These later scenes just ended up being very cringeworthy for me though and I can't at all relate to that level of impulsiveness so Jerry himself just felt painful to watch. It was nice to see Cruise again before he became Mr Generic Action Hero, and Cuba Gooding, Jr. was great, though I'm a bit surprised to learn he got an Oscar for it. The ending was really contrived and, despite a strong start, overall the movie was pretty ehh.
