Jerry Maguire [DVD] [1996]

Jerry Maguire, like most Tom Cruise movies, has a wealth of fans who can't get enough of its charms. This Deluxe Widescreen Edition DVD, while visually striking and technically above average, seems to have been rushed to market. There is no original menu artwork, just a cropped image of the promotional poster and generic buttons for language, subtitles, and chapter choices. Outside of the 1.85:1 widescreen transfer and the Dolby Digital Sound, there is certainly nothing here to justify calling the DVD a Deluxe Edition. There's no director or cast commentary track, production notes, theatrical trailer, or even cast and crew information. Since the DVD is broken into 63 chapters, the chapter selection menu would seem vital to any user attempting to find a place or a favorite scene in the movie. Sadly, the captions for the scenes are rather obscure, and there are no still images to provide additional help. The additional language tracks for the movie are French and Spanish; Spanish subtitles can also be selected. A movie as popular as Jerry Maguire and one that's admired by such a large audience deserves a better DVD release than this lackluster edition.

Synopsis

Jerry Maguire
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, Rovi
