Believe it or not, never saw this one.
Is it a great movie or is it very over-rated?

Never saw it either to which people say "you never saw it??? See it"

I believe this was the movie that brought out the phrase show me the money, yes?

I have seen this movie multiple times and I like it a lot. It's not Oscar stuff but I have always appreciated Cameron Crowe's style of story telling and humor. If you liked 'Almost Famous', you will like this film. It also helps to have a bit of enthusiasm for sports and Tom Cruise. I don't know if you want to blind buy this (some find Crowe's movies too sentimental) it but I would say you HAVE to see this film it being among his best. ...And yes Cuba Gooding is great in this and coins the "show me the money" line.

As a Cameron Crowe fan for the most part, starting with movies he was involved with such as The Wild Life, Say Anything and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, I like his ability to make a movie that is funny and still have heart. I loved the movie Singles even though romantic type situational comedies are not my wheel house. I guess its the setting and music of the times that made me like it. I also loved Vanilla Sky, many did not. But Jerry was a bit over the top on the cheesy love scale for me to buy or watch a second time. Not a bad movie, at least they paid to use real NFL teams, a pet peeve of mine in many pro sports movies. It has many funny moments, many are over the top imo though. It is a bit thick with corny lines however, something that loses me really quick. Worth the buy, for me its a Netflix movie. On the flip side, if you like it, you will have a movie that your other half will not protest.

One of the few Tom Cruise films I don't own. I really just don't like this one. Only seen it once. I don't' know what it is about it.

Thanks guys. I remember a parody or spoof skit one time so I am familiar with the music of it, and I dig it.

I remember a Howard Stern interview one time saying it was a great movie but then what the hell were they thinking when they did Vanilla Sky.

An all-around great movie. I love it. Quotable lines, and a lot of heart. Cruise is excellent. Cameo by Angela Goethals. I know nothing about sports, and I never watch sports, but this movie never bored me once. See it. Own it. It's that good. Show me the money.
