* BettyAndVeronica: Slightly subverted in that the two don't compete directly for Jerry's affections, but Dorothy (Betty) and Avery (Veronica) fit the character types.

* CanNotSpitItOut: Jerry, who's "great at friendship, bad at intimacy".

* DreadfulMusician: Turns out Rod is a better football player than he is a singer.

to:

* DreadfulMusician: DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: When Jerry breaks up with Avery, she responds by punching him twice in the face. While not exactly PlayedForLaughs, the abuse is trivialised and this trope is presumably the reason Jerry does not slap her with assault charges. She becomes a KarmaHoudini for the stunt too. To a lesser extent, Marcy assaults Rod's brother when she gets annoyed at his nasty attitude during the final game.

Turns out Rod is a better football player than he is a singer.



* ExperimentedInCollege: Avery alludes to doing so, see BiTheWay above.



* GilliganCut: When Dorothy first meets Jerry, she says that the woman who is with him must be "a classy broad". Cut to Jerry and Avery having very ''non'' classy sex up against the wall.



* InsistentTerminology: Call Chad an ''au pair'' or a ''child care technician'' if you like, but ''don't'' call him a nanny.

* InstantBirthJustAddWater: Marcy.Marcy's water breaks in a restaurant and they hurry her out of there without paying.



* SassyBlackWoman: Marcy.

to:

* SassyBlackWoman: Marcy.Marcy is a mild example. Her sass manifests as extreme loyalty to her husband, but she's easily the more level-headed of the two.
* ShakingHerHairLoose: Dorothy wears her hair up for the dinner date with Jerry, and shakes it free just before they have sex.

He writes a manifesto on what we think but don't say, which he passes out to his entire firm. But there is a reason we don't say those things, and he is fired in short order. Losing his clients, future clients and his fiancee, his only solace is retaining a single athlete, football player Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.), and inspiring a secretary at the firm, Dorothy Boyd (Renee Zellweger), to join with him. Tidwell is a talented athlete but [[SmallNameBigEgo has a far greater ego]], making his upcoming contract re-negotiation a nail biter. Jerry and Dorothy soon fall for each other, but they wonder if it's true love or one of convenience and consideration of her young son Ray (Jonathan Lipnicki).

->'''Jerry''': ''I love you. You... you complete me. And I just...''
->'''Dorothy''': ''Shut up. Just... shut up. You had me at "hello."''

So there's this sports agent, Jerry Macguire (Creator/TomCruise), and he's got a pretty sweet deal going on. He's great at his job and it earns him a lot of money and respect, he's got a hot redheaded fiancee who's ready for a threesome and an admiring protege. Then the son of a client with a concussion tells him off. This leads to a nervous breakdown which turns to an epiphany where he realizes how disingenuous and corrupt the sports agent business is. He tries to be friends with everyone, only to see he was helping a lot of self-centered {{Jerkass}}es get away with illegal and immoral acts while making millions of dollars.

* FourthDateMarriage: Seemingly deconstructed at first - Jerry and Dorothy do seem to fall in love and marry awfully quickly, but [[spoiler:it proves to be the bad idea that it is RealLife when their relationship falls apart after they've tied the knot]]. Later played straight when [[spoiler: they reconcile after Jerry's big "you complete me" speech at the end of the movie]].
