Top sports agent Jerry Maguire (Cruise), is clearly the master of his universe, with a glorious client roster and fiery fianc

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 DVD exhibits a picture that appears to be the same as the previously released DVD (Issue 25). The picture quality is quite pleasing, with sharp and detailed images. Some scenes appear somewhat soft. Colors are nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. There is some minor pixelization and occasional edge enhancement. Some film grain is revealed from the source element. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD-ROM Review:
Inserting disc two of this two-disc release will let you access the InterActual DVD-ROM features. After loading, you are brought to the main menu, which has links for two Web sites, and labels titled View The Script and Show Me The Video Commentary. The Screenplay is presented well, but because the actual movie is encoded on the other disc, you can not watch the film while reading the script on the same page. The style used is very easy to read, with nice contrast between the font and the background image. Clicking Show Me The Video Commentary leads you to the DVD-Video portion of the disc, where you can see all the extra features available on this second disc. Unfortunately, nothing is added to this list by being a DVD-ROM user, but it was worth hoping for. Sadly, there really is nothing exciting added to this version of Jerry Maguire. I guess games and such would not really fit the overlying theme of the film, but it sure would have been fun to play a little football game, or work as an athlete's agent working to "show them the money."
