Jerry Maguire
Tri-Star / 1996 / 133 Mins / Rated M15+


MOVIE
This is a great movie and one of the few studio pictures of 1996 to get a nod for the OSCARS, it's also known for one of the most famous sayings around.

The story revolves around Jerry Maguire a sports agent who writes a memo that says to spend more time with the clients and care about them. He promptly get fired and only manages to keep the business of one athlete, Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding, Jnr) Rod is a footballer who is near the end of his career and needs one more good contract to make his retirement comfortable.

Jerry slowly begins a relationship with Dorothy a single mum that believes in him, she also has a son that is one of the best little actors I have seen on film. Jerry Maguire is wonderful movie, full of heart and is well worth the money. See how many real athletes you can spot in the movie.

VIDEO

I'm amazed they could get a movie running 133 minutes looking this good on a single layer. The transfer is sharp throughout and looks stupendous. There was some slight MPEG artifacts present which marred the transfer slightly.

Jerry Maguire is framed at 1:85:1 and is 16:9 enhanced.

This is a single sided, single layer disc.

AUDIO

Wonderful sound use here. Dolby 5.1 all the way which is very immersive. Good use of surrounds and integration with the front sound stage made a dynamic sound field for this type of movie.

Dialog was very easy to here.

EXTRAS
No extras for the movie as it was an early Columbia/Tri-Star disc. There is a DVD trailer and that's it. 
FINAL THOUGHTS
This is a great movie on a good quality disc. Shame about the extras. This is begging for a collector's edition.
