I feel like Jerry Maguire is one of those movies people my age always here about but have never actually seen; being released when we were too young to watch, but such a big hit that everyone talks about it.
To be honest, I think it’s popular for only three reasons:
“You complete me.”
“You had me at hello.”
Surely you seen this one coming… “SHOW ME THE MONEY!!”
Those lines are referenced ev-er-y-where. If you haven’t heard at least one, you must live under a rock. In a very deep hole.
I legit knew two things about this movie before I watched: Tom Cruise and ‘show me the money’, which led me to believe it was about some hostage situation. It’s not.
Moving on, it’s not a bad show, I was just expecting more because it’s so widely talked about. It’s a sweet love story with loveable characters and the best little kid that just makes you want to squeeze him. It’s more rom-com than anything else.
I’d recommend watching it just because it’s, like, a part of your duty as a movie-lover.
