11. Jerry Maguire (1996)
It’s not often Tom Cruise makes a film without explosions, but when he does take the time to make one, they always seem to turn out pretty well. Perhaps the best example of this is 1996’s Jerry Maguire, a film which sees Cruise starring as the titular character, a disposed sports agent who strikes out on his own with but one client, a snarky wide receiver played by Cuba Gooding Jr. The romance comes into play when the viewer is introduced to single mom Dorothy Boyd (Renee Zellweger) and her precocious son (Jonathon Lipnicki), a pair who quickly win Jerry’s heart. The film that gave us the oft-parodied “You…complete…me” line, along with the classic “SHOW ME THE MONEY,” Jerry Maguire holds up well upon repeat viewings and is a great flick for those who want to cuddle up with their significant other for the evening.
