Combining drama, comedy, and romance, Jerry Maguire was a critical and commercial success built on an original script by writer/director Cameron Crowe and an Oscar-nominated performance by Tom Cruise. Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) is an agent with a major sports management firm. He's enthusiastic, successful, a great negotiator and people like him. But it begins to dawn on Jerry that there's something wrong with what he's doing, and not long after a troubling encounter with the son of an injured athlete he represents, Jerry has a serious crisis of conscience. In the midst of a sleepless night, Jerry writes a memo calling on himself and his colleagues to think more about the long-term welfare of the clients they represent and less about immediate profits. While everyone around him applauds the sentiment, Jerry's superiors think his ideas are bad for business; Jerry is fired, and, rather than standing in solidarity with him, his "friends" in the firm scramble like sharks to claim Jerry's clients. At the end of his last day, the only people willing to join Jerry as he strikes out on his own are staff accountant Dorothy (Renee Zellweger), a single mother secretly in love with him, and Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.), a football player whose pride and arrogance have gotten in the way of his reaching his potential. Jerry Maguire earned an Academy Award for Cuba Gooding Jr.'s performance as Tidwell and provided a breakthrough role for Renee Zellweger; it also made "Show me the money!" an unavoidable catchphrase for several months.~Mark Deming

This 15th anniversary blu-ray release of Jerry Maguire is definitely worth the upgrade from the blu-ray that was initially released in 2008. The color is richer and vibrant with the right saturation. It also comes with all-new special features that were not included in the previous release, and they include:
*Jerry Maguire: We Meet Again - A 3-part retrospective featuring new interviews with Tom Cruise & Cameron Crowe
*Nearly 60 minutes of never-before-seen deleted & extended scenes
There is a lot more special features included, but will not list all on here since it is the same as the previous release. The ones mentioned are what is new and different from the previous release. What is also special about this release is that it comes with original CD soundtrack as well as a booklet with an introduction from the director Cameron Crowe himself, followed by the actual 25 page document that is featured in the film "The Things We Think And Do Not Say." Note that this document was included on the previous blu-ray release, but is not included on the 15th anniversary blu-ray disc itself since it is printed on the small booklet.
If you have not purchased Jerry Maguire on blu-ray in the past, the 15th anniversary version is THE version to get!!! You won't be disappointed!
Glad I picked up this new edition of a classic 90's comedy/drama! Still a touching film in more ways than one. This edition comes packed with all the old special features from the dvd(special edition) as well as new retro interviews, and more bonuses. You can also take this movie on the go with the digital copy included.
Aside from being a great movie the video quality is excellent.
I would recommend this to a friend

Great release for this feature film.
Jerry Maguire's new 1080p transfer, fully remastered in 4K, looks phenomenal. Ignoring the big elephant in the room -- the absence of a UHD release -- there's no mistaking this as a top-shelf 1080p presentation, probably about the height the Blu-ray format can reach. The image is gorgeously filmic -- breathtaking, really -- and more than just watching the movie it's a joy to simply gaze at the transfer, to soak it in, to be happy, thrilled, to be living in a time when such an honest cinematic presentation is available to view at home. Even after a decade-plus of Blu-ray and months of UHD, a transfer like this still stands apart. The combination of filmed source and meticulous 4K scan is still a sight, even on Blu-ray. Needless to say, the image is practically flawless. Detailing is fantastic. The image is lightly grainy, an accentuating grain that brings out the finest the film has on offer. Skin textures are incredibly rich and complex. There's an inherent textural ease about them, a natural, refined gentleness that finds that perfect middle ground between excessively sharp and unwanted softness. The easy-come complexity is reflective in extremely fine pores, striking clothing seams, and well-shaped environments, whether grassy surfaces or warm home interiors. Colors are beautiful. Saturation is wonderful, shades pop, and much like the details there's a natural middle ground of vibrancy meets restraint. A football field sequence in chapter seven is a standout. Green grass and gatorade cups, an orange cooler, and Cardinal red splash cross the screen in what is the most dynamic mix and color punch the movie has on offer. Even in less brilliant moments, the palette's natural vigor shines through. Flesh tones are handsomely neutral and black levels hold firm throughout. Source flaws are nonexistent, and there are no encode anomalies of which to speak. It would be interesting to compare this to a UHD release, but even without that option there's no mistaking this release as one of the best the Blu-ray format has on offer.
Great acting with Academy winner Cuba Gooding for supporting actor plus Golden Globe winner Tom Cruise. One of my favorite Tom Cruise movies with Renée for a winning combination. Blu-ray quality is good and this one came with additional cd with music from the movie that was great. Very good storyline with lots of memorable lines.
Saw this in theaters originally and I loved it. I've always been a big fan of Tom Cruise and he gives a great comedic and dramatic performance as the title character. Cuba Gooding Jr. received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance in this.
