YMMV: Jerry Maguire
  • The Catch Phrase Catches On: Many, including "Help me help you", "You had me at 'hello'", "You complete me", and most notably "Show me the money".
    • Two well-earned spots on AFI' s "100 Quotes" List, with the "hello" line ranked at #52 and the "money" line at #25.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: As with most Cameron Crowe films, it has an excellent and aptly-assembled soundtrack.
    • Special mention must go to "Shelter From the Storm" by Bob Dylan over the end credits.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Cuba Gooding Jr. had appeared in quite a few high-profile movies before this one, among them Boyz N' The Hood, A Few Good Men, and Outbreak, but this was the role that gave him actual name recognition.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Summed up nicely at the very end of the movie.
    Dicky Fox: Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
