Jerry Maguire is a 1996 American sports comedy-drama film directed and written by Cameron Crowe. It was produced by Crowe and James L. Brooks for Gracie Films and distributed by TriStar Pictures. It stars Tom Cruise as the sports agent Jerry Maguire, alongside Cuba Gooding Jr., Renée Zellweger, Kelly Preston, Jerry O'Connell, Jay Mohr, Bonnie Hunt and Regina King. It was released in North American theaters on December 13, 1996.

Jerry Maguire was inspired by an experience the sports agent Leigh Steinberg, a technical consultant for the film, had with the client Tim McDonald during the 1993 NFL season when free agency was introduced.[2][3][4] The film was also partly inspired by a 28-page memo written at Disney in 1991 by Jeffrey Katzenberg.[5]

Jerry Maguire received positive reviews for its performances and screenplay. It grossed more than $273 million worldwide against its $50 million budget.[1] It was the ninth-highest-grossing film of 1996. It was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Cruise, with Cuba Gooding Jr. winning Best Supporting Actor. It received nominations for three Golden Globes, with Cruise winning for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards, with Gooding winning Best Supporting Actor.

Jerry Maguire gained a cult following and has spawned several catchphrases into popular culture, such as "Show me the money!" and "You had me at 'Hello'", "You complete me", and "Help me help you".[citation needed]


Jerry Maguire is a slick 35-year-old sports agent working for Sports Management International (SMI). After criticism from an injured player's son triggers a life-altering epiphany, he writes a mission statement about perceived dishonesty in the sports management business and his desire to work with fewer clients to produce a better, more caring personal relationship with them.

In response, SMI management sends Bob Sugar, Jerry's protégé, to fire him in a restaurant. This immediately spurs both men to race to call every one of Jerry's clients to retain their respective services. Jerry speaks to Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rod Tidwell, one of his smallest clients who is disgruntled with his pay. Rod tests Jerry's resolve through a long tirade on his lack of contract extension. By the conclusion of the conversation, Bob has managed to persuade the rest of Jerry's clients to stick with SMI.

Leaving the office, Jerry loudly announces that he will start his own agency and asks if anyone will join him, to which only 26-year-old single mother Dorothy Boyd agrees. Frank "Cush" Cushman, a superstar quarterback prospect who expects to be the number one pick in the NFL Draft, initially also stays with Jerry after he makes a personal visit to the Cushman home. Frank's father agrees but insists on a handshake deal instead of a signed contract because "his word is strong as oak". However, Bob Sugar persuades Cush and his racist father to sign with SMI behind Jerry's back after seeing Jerry spend time to introduce Rod, "a Black man", to other football executives.

After an argument, Jerry breaks up with his disgruntled fiancée Avery who was emotionally unsupportive. He then turns to Dorothy, becoming closer to her young son, Ray. Jerry also sexually harasses and gropes Dorothy during a moment of vulnerability, before starting a romantic relationship with her.

Jerry concentrates all his efforts on Rod, now his only remaining client, who turns out to be very difficult to satisfy. In bad need of money, Jerry calls in a favor to get a contract extension from Rod's current team, the Arizona Cardinals, but received a low-ball offer. Rod and his wife decide to pass on the offer despite Jerry's warning that if he gets injured, he will receive nothing.

Without any money coming in, Dorothy knows that Jerry is unable to afford payroll so she decides to move to San Diego as she has a secure job offer there alongside health benefits. However, she and Jerry then decide at the last minute to get married in order to share the health benefits.

Over the next several months, Rod and Jerry grow closer through a series of open and difficult conversations as they struggle to make ends meet. This culminates in the famous phrase "Help me, help you" that seems to finally get across to Rod to stop complaining and to start playing his heart out.

Rod takes Jerry's advice to prove he is worthy of his contract. He is playing well and his team is winning. Jerry's marriage with Dorothy deteriorates as they struggle financially, with Dorothy losing hope that it will work out.

During a December Monday Night Football game between the Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys, Rod catches the winning touchdown that secures a spot for the Cardinals in the playoffs, but appears to receive a serious injury in the process. After a few scary minutes, he regains consciousness and celebrates with a dance for the wildly cheering crowd.

Afterwards, Jerry and Rod embrace in front of other athletes and sports agents and show how their relationship has progressed from a strictly business one to a close personal one, which was one of the points Jerry made in his mission statement. He then flies back home to meet Dorothy while she was in the midst of her sister's divorcee get-together where they drink wine and complain about the inadequacies of men and marriage. Jerry barges in which causes all eyes to look at him. He gives an impassioned speech telling her that he loves her and wants her in his life, which she reciprocates with the famous line "shut up, shut up, you had me at hello".

Rod appears on Roy Firestone's sports talk show. Unbeknownst to him, Jerry has secured him a massive $11.2 million contract with the Cardinals, allowing him to finish his pro football career in Arizona. Roy announces it which causes Rod to break down emotionally and thank everyone and extends warm gratitude to Jerry. Jerry speaks with several other pro athletes, some of whom have read his earlier mission statement and respect his work with Rod.


As themselves:

Cameron Crowe originally wrote the screenplay for Tom Hanks. Crowe took so long to write the screenplay that by the time the film was ready to be made, he thought Hanks was too old to play the part.[6] Woody Harrelson was offered the role but turned it down. Rod Tidwell was partially modeled after Charley Taylor.[7]

Janet Jackson auditioned and was initially accepted for the role of Marcee Tidwell, though it later went to Regina King, who previously co-starred in Jackson's debut film Poetic Justice.[8][9] Jackson is referenced twice in the film, with a Janet poster seen hanging in Teepee's room and Cuba Gooding Jr.'s character Rod Tidwell asking "What Have You Done for Me Lately?", paying homage to Jackson's hit of the same name.[10][11]

Artie Lange filmed a scene for the movie but it was edited out of the final cut.[10]

Patricia Arquette, Kate Beckinsale, Bridget Fonda, Winona Ryder, Marisa Tomei, Cameron Diaz, Uma Thurman and Jennifer Lopez were all considered for the part of Dorothy.[6] Mira Sorvino was also considered for Dorothy but the producers would not meet her quote.[6] The producers also considered Janeane Garofalo for the role of Dorothy but she was deemed too old for the part.[12] Connie Britton auditioned for the role of Dorothy,[13] and the choice was narrowed down to Zellweger and Britton, with Zellweger winning the part.[14] Damon Wayans and Mykelti Williamson were considered for the role of Rod Tidwell.[6] Jamie Foxx unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Rod Tidwell.[15] Diane Lane was considered for the role of Avery Bishop; however, the role was eventually given to Kelly Preston.[6] Billy Wilder was considered for the part of Jerry's mentor Dicky Fox.[6]


Jerry Maguire was scored by Crowe's then-wife, Nancy Wilson, a member of the rock band Heart. Songwriter Aimee Mann recorded a song, "Wise Up", to be used in the film, but Crowe felt it did not fit. According to Crowe, he had used Mann's original version, a simple demo piano, in a scene in which Jerry Maguire is moving through an airport. Mann's final version was "larger, more lush, more of a personal epic, and quite incredible... suddenly it was too big for the scene it was meant for." He said not being able to use it was "heartbreaking".[16] The song was included on the Jerry Maguire soundtrack and later used in the 1999 film Magnolia.[17]

"Secret Garden", originally a Bruce Springsteen track from 1995, was re-released in 1997 after its exposure in the film and on the soundtrack, and reached No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100.[18][19]

Product placement[edit]

TriStar received merchandise and marketing services of over $1.5 million from Reebok in exchange for incorporating a commercial into the film and depicting the Reebok brand within certain agreed-upon standards; when the film was theatrically released, the commercial had been left out and a tirade including "broadsides against Reebok" was included.[20] When the film aired on television, the Reebok commercial had been embedded into the film as originally agreed upon.[20] The "Special Edition" DVD release of the film, which has the film's theatrical edit, includes the commercial as bonus content.


Box office[edit]

Jerry Maguire debuted at number one above Mars Attacks!, earning $17,084,296 during its opening weekend.[21] The film would earn the second-highest December opening weekend at the time of its release, behind Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.[22] It eventually grossed $153,952,592 in North American box office and approximately $119.6 million internationally for a $273,552,592 worldwide total, on a budget of $50 million.[1] It was the ninth top-grossing film of 1996 and the fourth highest-grossing romantic drama film of all time.[23]

Critical response[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, Jerry Maguire has an approval rating of 84% based on reviews from 90 critics, with an average score of 7.8/10. Its consensus states: "Anchored by dazzling performances from Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Renée Zellweger, as well as Cameron Crowe's tender direction, Jerry Maguire meshes romance and sports with panache."[24] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 77 out of 100 based on reviews from 28 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[25] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale.[26]

Cuba Gooding Jr. won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Rod Tidwell, the Arizona Cardinals football player who sticks with Maguire. Cruise was also nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role and the movie marked Renée Zellweger's breakout role. The film itself was nominated for Best Picture, and crew members on the film were nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing awards.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three out of four stars, writing that there "are so many subplots that Jerry Maguire seems too full" and also commented that the film "starts out looking cynical and quickly becomes a heartwarmer."[27] Todd McCarthy of Variety wrote "An exceptionally tasty contempo comedic romance, Jerry Maguire runs an unusual pattern on its way to scoring an unexpected number of emotional, social and entertaining points. Smartly written and boasting a sensational cast, Cameron Crowe's shrewdly observed third feature also gives Tom Cruise one of his very best roles..."[28]

Former Green Bay Packers vice president Andrew Brandt said that the film "accurately portrayed the cutthroat nature of the agent business, especially the lengths to which agents will go to retain or pilfer clients. It also captured the financial, emotional and psychological investment that goes far beyond negotiating contracts."[29]

Home media[edit]

Jerry Maguire was first released on VHS and LaserDisc on May 29, 1997 by Columbia TriStar Home Video. [citation needed]

Over 3 million copies were sold during its first week of release. It was re-released on VHS in the late 1990s. In its first week of release on VHS to stores and video stores in 1997, it made $80 million in sales and $7.6 million in rentals. The $80 million was split between video dealers and Columbia TriStar Home Video.[32][33]

The film was first released onto DVD on June 24, 1997 and around 2002 respectively in both a standard edition and a two-disc "Special Edition". While the standard edition contains no special features, the two-disc edition primarily includes deleted scenes, commentary tracks, featurettes, and a music video for Bruce Springsteen's "Secret Garden". The film was later released on Blu-ray on September 9, 2008, with the same special features found on the second disc of the "Special Edition" DVD.[34] In 2008, the film was triple-packed with A Few Good Men and Born on the Fourth of July by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment/Universal Pictures Home Entertainment in the United Kingdom only. The film was double-featured with Cliffhanger via DVD in 2008 and also double-featured with A Few Good Men via DVD on December 29, 2009. The film was also chosen to be released in 4K as part of the Columbia Classics Collection: Volume 1 4K Ultra HD box set alongside Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Dr. Strangelove, Lawrence of Arabia, Gandhi, and A League of Their Own on June 16, 2020.


Jerry Maguire spawned several popular quotations, including "Show me the money!" (shouted repeatedly in a phone exchange between Rod Tidwell and Jerry Maguire), "You complete me" , "Help me help you," "The key to this business is personal relationships" and "You had me at 'hello'" (said by Renée Zellweger's Dorothy Boyd after a lengthy romantic plea by Jerry Maguire), and "Kwan," a word used by Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Tidwell meaning love, respect, community, and money (also spelled "quan" and "quawn") to illustrate the difference between himself and other football players: "Other football players may have the coin, but they won't have the 'Kwan'." These lines are largely attributed to Cameron Crowe, director and screenwriter of the film. Zellweger said of filming the famous "hello" line, "Cameron had me say it a few different ways. It's so funny, because when I read it, I didn't get it–I thought it was a typo somehow. I kept looking at it. It was the one thing in the script that I was looking at going, 'Is that right? Can that be right? How is that right?' I thought, 'Is there a better way to say that? Am I not getting it? I just don't know how to do it.'"[35] Brandt stated in 2014 that "I definitely noticed an uptick of young people becoming interested in the agent business after Jerry Maguire".[29] "Some of what happened to the agent industry would have happened without 'Jerry,' but definitely not as fast as it did," noted Peter Schaffer, who has been a sports agent since 1988.[36]

In June 2008, AFI revealed its "Ten Top Ten"—the best ten films in ten "classic" American film genres—after polling over 1,500 people from the creative community. Jerry Maguire was acknowledged as the tenth best film in the sports genre.[37][38] It was also voted by AFI as #100 on its list of 100 Passions.[39] The quotes "Show me the money!" and "You had me at 'hello'" were also ranked by AFI on its list of 100 Movie Quotes, ranked #25 and #52 respectively.[40]

American Film Institute Lists

In June 2010, Entertainment Weekly named Jerry Maguire one of the 100 Greatest Characters of the Last 20 Years.[41]

In 2017, the NFL produced two "A Football Life" mockumentaries to commemorate the film's 20th anniversary edition; they portray the careers of Rod Tidwell and Frank Cushman after the events of the film. Beau Bridges, Jay Mohr, Jerry O'Connell, and Aries Spears reprised their roles from the film, along with Roy Firestone and several real-life sports figures, including Shaquille O'Neal. According to the fictional history, Cushman retired after only four years due to a severe case of athlete's foot, and devoted himself to charity work with children with the same affliction; Tidwell was offered an even more lucrative contract, but declined, declaring that the "quan" was not there, and he preferred to devote more time to his family. The Tidwell mockumentary also features an adult Ray Boyd, inspired by Jerry and Rod to own his own boxing gym.


In a February 2021 interview, Crowe said he had considered making a sequel to Jerry Maguire and that he had been approached several times about making a TV series adaptation of the film. In both cases, he felt that any continuation of the film's story should focus on Rod Tidwell and his family life with wife Marcee.[42][43]

According to Reebok, there was a specific agreement for how the brand would be portrayed, and a full commercial for Reebok was supposed to be embedded in the film. That commercial, which showcases the company in a positive light, ended up on the cutting room floor, while an angry tirade that included broadsides against Reebok was kept in. Reebok took the case to court and got an undisclosed amount of money in an out-of-court settlement. When the film aired on TV, the commercial was back in.
