Football Movies - Jerry Maguire
9 / 17
TriStar Pictures

"Jerry Maguire" (1996): While most of this film's story, about the titular superstar sports agent (played by Tom Cruise) who suffers a nervous breakdown and starts his own agency, takes place off the field, it still remains a football movie. Cuba Gooding Jr. won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for portraying the cocky Arizona Cardinals wide receiver who wants Maguire and his team to show him the money. And who can forget Renee Zellweger's "You had me at hello" line?
