Jerry Maguire

Continuing two themes from last week’s episode – what did Tim happen to watch and sports movies – we tackle (SEE WHAT I DID THERE) the 1996 Cameron Crowe film Jerry Maguire.

Starring Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger, with an Academy Award-winning supporting performance from Cuba Gooding, Jr., we use this flawed but engaging movie as a springboard to discuss the inner workings of grace and the true meaning of marriage (seriously), amidst the normal frivolous banter.

Enjoy!

Emergency Podcast: Tim Saw a Sports Movie

The Catholic Movie Guy Podcast is a reflection of its host(s).  Sometimes, this means that a podcast is dedicated to a dissection of weighty or difficult spiritual themes (e.g., Silence); sometimes, it’s an appreciation of a worthy new film (e.g., La La Land) or a classic (e.g., A Man for All Seasons).

But sometimes, we just have to talk about a movie we saw.  And today is one of those times.  Therefore, I called for an emergency podcast to address a minor miracle:  theTimMan actually watched a sports movie, despite his disdain for them.

In this episode, we discuss that special film (The Blind Side) and express our thoughts on other sports movies and the genre generally.  And did my wife like it?  Tune in to find out.
