jerry maguire

When Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) has a bit of a “breakthrough, not a breakdown,” he wears his heart on his sleeve for the first time in a long time and writes “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business.” What does he get in return for penning the heartfelt mission statement? Fired. Instead of becoming the man he always wanted to be simply overnight, a selfless and caring man, he ends up losing sight of himself once again. While the mission statement initially doesn’t go according to plan, Maguire ultimately does become that man he envisioned by the end of writer-director Cameron Crowe‘s 1996 film.

Via voiceover, we only hear snippets from Maguire’s 25-page mission statement, but with the 20th anniversary of Jerry Maguire coming up, “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business” has been made available to read in its entirety. Read an excerpt from the Jerry Maguire mission statement below.

Roadies Trailer

It’s no secret that pretty much the entire /Film crew has undying love for Almost Famous. Maybe it’s because of the similarities between covering the world of music and covering the world of film and television, or maybe it’s just because it’s a damn good coming-of-age tale. No matter what the reason, I love it. Therefore, I’m happy to see director Cameron Crowe‘s first television endeavor taking him back behind the scenes of rock and roll with a new Showtime series called Roadies.

Not unlike Almost Famous, the show follows around a fictional band, but it’s the crew who gets the concerts ready that takes the spotlight. They tour around the United States, creating an unconventional family-like bond with all the good and bad that comes with living each other on the road for months at a time. Get a taste of what you can expect with the first Roadies trailer below. Read More »
