Jerry Maguire (1996)

1. Jerry Maguire (1996)

“Show me the money!”  If one role summed up Tom Cruise’s career, it would be Jerry Maguire.  The film was released arguably in the middle of his illustrious career, he plays his trademark intense-charming-handsome-angry lawyer and he has scenes with an adorable little kid.  America couldn’t help but root for the sports agent who left his firm with only one client.  His chemistry with a then-unknown Renee Zellweger is arguably the best chemistry he ever shared on screen (and he even made three movies with Nicole Kidman while they were together).
