Festivale Autumn 1997
Jerry Maguire movie review

Jerry Maguire

Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire copyright Tristar Pictures Is Tom Cruise the most likeable man in films? Maybe not, but who cares? While he is on screen during Jerry Maguire, he is the most likeable man you know. He has a quality of endearing charm, a lost man quality. Not a lost boy, not a naughty boy, but a man who once was something, who once aspired to something, and who made one wrong choice.

We're not talking about those 'big' choices, like stealing a car or killing someone, we're talking about grabbing the brass ring and not knowing that it's the wrong ring.

Jerry Maguire is the story of a man who finds his way and then has to deal with it. Too many stories end with the epiphany, the man is found, his soul is wiped clean, the heroine walks up and takes his arm and we know they have it all.

Except that having it all isn't a magic recipe, after the choice, after finding the right person, you have to make it work. In real life you have a tremendous realisation and life goes on, you have bills to pay, work to seek, family to look after, and in Jerry Maguire the story is not the epiphany, not the glorious moment of golden insight, but the trials and tribulations of living up to your own expectations.

Finding your place in the world is a theme that you might remember from a previous effort by writer/director Cameron Crowe - Say Anything.
