is a goldfish and the loyal Dorothy Boyd from SMI, who

football super-star, Bobby Kushman. Expected to go '#1'
in the draft, Maguire needs Kushman's contract, and loyalty,
in order to keep his new business and life afloat.
Kushman isn't Maguire's only client, and an equally desperate
yet defensive Rod Tidwell clings to Maguire in hopes he
can up his "crappy contract" and bring in more
of the "kwaa." But of course, Tidwell doesn't
remain on Jerry's side without some heavy groveling, some
major pride swallowing, and a few radical life perspectives
along the way for the new and improved maverick sports

and the officials' uncooperative stance on Tidwell's contract

relations with Dorothy via a quick breakup with Avery

benefits can be trimmed into one, and, Jerry can enjoy
the sympathetic company of Dorothy's adorable son, Ray.

the way sports lovers and common men look at the world
and their personal priorities. With much political and
cultural satire ensuing via the medium of comic relief,
and all things related to, by, from, and for money, "Jerry
Maguire" takes the typical man and makes him rethink
why he is living the way he is, and moreover, if he doesn't

The film is about more than social, and particularly,
sports and political critiques, but rather, about the
human heart and our ability to block love as easily as
we can embrace it. Using the protagonist of Jerry Maguire,
a man great at loving everybody but his partner and himself,
