99: “Help Me Help You” – Jerry Maguire
When We Were Young’s Tom Cruise double-feature sets sail on what might be the movie star’s ultimate role, the titular charming and conflicted sports agent of Cameron Crowe’s JERRY MAGUIRE.
This 1996 romantic drama made a star out of Renee Zellweger and Cuba Gooding Jr. (the latter winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor) and cemented Cruise’s status as Hollywood’s go-to leading man with his record-breaking fifth $100-million-plus-earning feature.
Decades later, does Cruise’s performance still complete us? Does the film have us at “Hello?” Do the script’s seemingly endless quotable moments, er, show us the money? (Sorry.) Join us on the final stop of our Cruise down memory lane, with a pit stop discussing the actor’s other notable 1996 entry, “Mission: Impossible.”
