Jerry Maguire

This is a 1996 romantic dramedy starring Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger as a sports agent who falls for his assistant and her adorable son.

Tom Cruise plays a sports agent who has a crisis of conscience after dealing with a boy who is worried about his injured sports playing father. This crisis leads to a whole new way for Tom Cruise to conduct business, causing him to get fired from his old job and scrambling to keep his roster of clients. He loses all of them except for Cuba Gooding, Jr. Renee Zellweger leaves her old job to follow Tom in his new dream and new way of doing business as his personal assistant.

At first, Tom falls for Renee's adorable son. He ends up marrying Renee so that he can be with her son but ultimately finds out that he loves Renee as well. He also realizes that his client is like family to him as well. By the end he finds family, true love, and happiness doing a job that he loves.

"Show me the money and You had me at hello" are both listed in the 100 greatest movie quotes of all time.

The first clip is set to Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen which is included in the movie soundtrack

The second scene is is Tom going back to get his wife and telling her that"You complete me and her responding "you had me at hello" **interesting side note Kenny Chesney so loved this scene in the movie, he wrote a song about it called "You had me at hello" Kenny and Renee ended up married for four month before they got the marriage annulled for unknown reasons**
