1996 movie featuring Tom Cruise as a sports agent, Cuba Gooding Jr. as his client, and Renée Zellweger as love interest.

The general concept of the movie is a redemption story -- how Jerry had a conscience attack one night, discovered there were some things about his life and work he needed to change, and how, despite his screwups, he winds up being a pretty good guy. Cuba Gooding Jr. won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor as Rod Tidwell, an Arizona Cardinals wide receiver with an attitude on the field, but his heart squarely with his family. Gooding's part feels overacted, but the Tidwell character is virtually impossible to overact.
