With Tom Cruise (left), being all he should be in the title role, Cameron Crowe's 1996 hit shows how to use Hollywood stars and traditional romantic comedy forms to build something satisfying and personal. This is a wholly unexpected film, as heady and surprising in its humor as in its emotional texture.

This month the real world finally lived up to Hollywood fiction by giving us two transcendent moments that many reasonable people expected might never happen. The first was the inauguration of Barack Obama as the first African American president of the United States, following through on the White House dress rehearsals by James Earl Jones, Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock and Dennis Haysbert. The second moment was even more staggering and unexpected: The Arizona Cardinals actually won a big game.

Sifting through resumes, sports agents Gary Wichard and Leigh Steinberg can't count the exact number of prospects who say this sparked their career interest. "Hundreds," said Wichard. "Thousands," said Steinberg. It's been more than 12 years since the release of "Jerry Maguire," which profiled a sports agent fighting an industry depicted as valuing materialism over personal relationships. The movie was a smash hit and caught a supporting actor Academy Award for Cuba Gooding Jr. Steinberg and Wichard said sports agencies still benefit from the film's success.

Tom Cruise's sports flick ended up the winner, edging out "In Love and War," starring Sandra Bullock and Chris O'Donnell, by less than $30,000, with the Chris Farley and Eddie Murphy comedies in close pursuit.

As a top agent at Sports Management International, Jerry Maguire has always wanted more. More clients, more money, a more desirable girlfriend, possibly even more phone calls than his daily average of 264. Then one day there is no more, and Jerry Maguire can't even guess what will happen next. As a filmmaker, Cameron Crowe has always wanted a different kind of more.

Cameron Crowe is very apologetic that the initial DVD of his 2000 Oscar-winning "Almost Famous" was released in the spring of 2001 without his commentary. He wanted to do it but found that his hectic schedule got in the way. "The one time in my life I actually try to be prolific," he says, "it keeps me from working on the thing that I really wanted to--work on the DVDs. But we did two movies ["Almost Famous" and "Vanilla Sky"] back to back.

Tom Cruise has played a vampire in one movie and now, in "Jerry Maguire," he portrays a sports agent. You know what they call this in Hollywood? Typecasting. "Jerry Maguire" is Cruise's first real stab at science fiction, given the three fantastic premises the viewer is asked to swallow: 1. Somewhere, maybe in a parallel universe, there exists a sports agent who looks like Tom Cruise. 2.

The Lake Elsinore Storm has planned a salute to Tom Cruise tonight during its California League baseball game. Besides giving away a Cruise bobblehead -- make that a "bobble-couch," depicting the star in full Oprah couch-jumping mode -- the San Diego Padres' Class-A affiliate will celebrate the "silent birth" of Tom and Katie Holmes' baby, Suri, with a "silent inning," during which no batters will be announced and no music played.

I just wanted to say thank you, Rick Porter, for confirming my own beliefs about singlehood, and underlining the fact that no one can complete anyone! ("Please, Friends, I Don't Need You to Complete Me," Jan. 29) I, too, firmly believe that we can only be truly complete within ourselves, and by ourselves. The company of another is certainly a nice addition -- companionship is a wonderful thing -- but seeking a partner for a relationship with the hopes that the person can make you whole is a fallacy, and relationships based on that logic don't have much hope of lasting, because that person can never do for you what you need to do for yourself.

On Dec. 13, 1996, "Jerry Maguire" starring Tom Cruise opened in theaters around the country and immediately became a blockbuster hit. But the next time audiences will see Cruise in a starring role, in Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut," won't occur until next December, two full years later--if then.

Now that "Jerry Maguire" is a critical and box-office hit, will it be every kid's dream to grow up to be a sports agent? If so, Orange County youngsters don't have to look far to see a couple of real-life, major-league examples of the profession in Leigh Steinberg and Dwight Manley. The film, starring Tom Cruise as a sports agent who is stricken with a conscience, is more than loosely based on the lifestyle of sports lawyer-agent Steinberg, right down to the contents of his wallet.

"Show me the money!" It has become a cliche. It is heard virtually everywhere. It was shouted by Cuba Gooding Jr., who won an Academy Award for playing a pro football player in the movie "Jerry Maguire." This now-famous phrase was actually uttered four years ago by soft-spoken San Francisco 49er safety Tim McDonald when he was seeking a new contract as an NFL free agent.

TV & RADIO 'Ellen' Under Fire: The "Ellen" episode in which Ellen DeGeneres' character "comes out" as a lesbian is again putting television on the firing line for its "family values." On Thursday a lobbying group chastised Disney, ABC and the producers of "Ellen," calling the show a "slap in the face to America's families." The Media Research Center took out a full-page ad in the trade paper Daily Variety to express its views, which a spokesman said have been underrepresented by the media.
