    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    Zellweger has the most interesting new face in film, and she knows how to use silences to say what the heart wants to get across. show more

    Working from his own original screenplay, Crowe builds a story line full of unexpected twists and digressions. show more

    Michael Atkinson Mr. Showbiz

    Lusts for a feel-good ending the material doesn't comfortably provide. One can't help wondering how dismal Jerry and Dorothy's life together will be after the credits roll. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Magic on celluloid -- fresh, funny, romantic, and upbeat. You'll leave the theater with a smile on your face and perhaps a tear in your eye. show more

    Ann Hornaday Baltimore Sun

    Let's get it out, loud and clear: Jerry Maguire is not a sports movie. It's a stealth chick movie, wrapped in a swaddling of jock stuff so that it gets through guy radar without setting off the missile defenses. show more
