Jerry Maguire was truer than you think

Think the movie Jerry Maguire was just a movie? Oh no, there are no “just movies”. See for yourself…

Interesting, VE. I never did finish with this movie, yet I can get through your post, no problem-LOL! Wonder how many subliminal messages were being piped through the theatre sound systems? Just wondering....( goes to put back on anti-subliminal message blocker helmet )...

Quirkyloon said...

VE, your mind is like a blender. You put something in it like a movie and who knows what concoction will be made!

hee hee

Funny!

Hit 40 said...

His wife is "Jumping the Shark" with him. She is going to do that tv show - dancing with the stars.

I hope they saved at least a little $$$. Their careers have about hit the wall.

Hit 40 said...

... and very cute. Thank you for a giggle. You put a lot of time into your posts. Nice!!!

Sarah said...

I saw this really cool commercial the other day....and it was for Scientology. I was like oh great, they are brainwashing me through the TV now! :p

Elizabeth said...

Oh Tom, Tom, Tom, What happened to you? I had such a huge crush on you in highschool.
I think The last picture says it all. Very funny! :)

VE said...

subtorp77 - That's a good helmet to have. Sort of like the sunglasses in the cheesy movie "They Live" where when they put them on, they can see all these aliens disguised as people and all the ads actually say "Consume...subdue...etc"

quirky - It's like a blender all right...with the lid off...

hit40 - These kind of posts don't take too long. The one that take longer are the blog spoofs

sarah - I told you TV was evil and full of crap...

elizabeth - There are a few movies I like with him in it but they would have been so much better now if somebody else had done them instead.

Mrsupole said...

See....I knew there was something wrong with me. It is all those little subliminal messages that I get when I visit your site.

So is his career truly over. Yea!! But what about the rest of those Scientology crazies. Or are they really crazy, or are they just making us crazy, or are they really aliens in disguise, or are they just illegal aliens in disguise, or are they the super race that Hitler made with AI, or are they just a bunch of money grubbing, mind controller freaks.

I need answers, please.......
I need one of those anti-subliminal message blocker helmets that subby has, please.......

Now I am scared, what if he makes another movie and we actually watch it. Are their careers ever truly over?

And yes it sure would be nice to see a lot of their careers over, but we never know for sure.

Great post and where do you come up with this stuff? No I mean where do you really come up with this stuff. Are you sure your not an alien? I mean your brain works different than anyone elses. See, I knew there were aliens here. Can you please tell us how you got here.

UH, the cafeine tea still hasn't worn off yet. Sorry.

God bless.

ReformingGeek said...

Who is this Tom that you speak of?

Oh, wait. He's the one that used to be so cute and entertaining and females would flock to the theaters to see him in Risky Business.

Oh, wait. Did I just admit to seeing that movie? oops.

Love the post, VE!

Megan said...

I used to really like Tom Cruise...

Jeff said...

One of my favorite Cruise spoofs is when they put him in South Park. "Dad... Tom Cruise won't come out of the closet!"

Awesome.

Baino said...

He's even off the pages of he gossip mags that they display at the supermarket checkout. Not only has he become passe, I guess the Cruise's three have become boring. I always wonder who fathered his kid. Apparently that's why he and Mimi Rogers split, they couldn't have kids, then Nicky marries Keith Urban and produces a sprog so . . .where did his little alien infused funnel web come from? Hey, hey? Answer me that!

subtorp77 said...

VE, great reference! and way cooler movie :D Reminded me of those cheese comicbook ads for "X-ray" specs. HA!

Nessa said...

He has the crazy in the eyes. He does. Look carefully. You'll see it.

Chris Eldin said...

AHAHAHAHAH!
At least Renee is still nice.
:-)

VE said...

reforminggeek - Admit it you did, girl! I should have known...

megan - You're entitled to one mistake...

jeff - A classic...leave it to you to know that one

baino - Perhaps the anti-christ?

subtorp77 - What box didn't want those x-ray specs to be real though?

nessa - I can't look...I'll be converted!

chris - She is...but I haven't seen her in anything lately. Could the Cruise curse have rubbed off?

subtorp77 said...

VE, I know this scene was set up in a movie, besides "They Live"( wracking brain to remember )....

VE said...

subtorp77 - I'm not sure...if you figure it out, let me know.

Jaime said...

very funny. i think i like your version of the movie better than the original.

subtorp77 said...

VE, will do!

subtorp77 said...

VE, the main ref would be corman's "The Man with the X-ray Eyes"( 1963 )but I know there were others....GAH!

Matt-Man said...

"I'm an officer in the United States Navy and a member of the Church of Scientology and you're under arrest you son of a bitch." Cheers!!

Chris Wood said...

That last picture - how true. Oh, and do see BB King if you can!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I've always avoided his movies. He's creepy. You're posts, on the other hand, are good even with Tom.

Dee said...

that was great!

VE said...

jaime - It's more real...and scary

subtorp77 - Wow, now that is obscure. I'm afraid I don't know that one.

matt-man - Ha! But the question is, are you an officer AND a gentleman?

chris wood - I will go see him. My son is big into guitar right now and BB is #3 on the all time list so how could I not take him?

perpetual chocoholic - Only cause I rip him a new one each time I post with him in it...

dee - A little fun for your work week!

Bazza said...

Who are we talking about here? oh yeah I understand now.

VE said...

bazza - It does not matter, what matters is whether it was funny or not!

Roy Scribner said...

Hey, another one of those make-the-5-foot-actor-look-normal movies!

VE said...

roy - Good point! All of his are those, aren't they?

Maureen said...

I am so glad I was too old to crush on Tom... luckily I never got into any of his movies.

Gladys said...

I read the biography of L. Ron Hubbard and he was as crazy as a bed bug. So crazy attracts crazy.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to attach myself to the e-machine and read my tattered copy of Dyanetics.

VE said...

maureen - You could have at least crushed him...

VE said...

gladys - I think I need to make up a religion too...I could use the tax write offs...

Wow said...

I forgot about the whole Brooke Shields medication thing. He has had his share of media blunders, hasn't he?

VE said...

wow - Oh...he's had more than his fair share!

Ronda Laveen said...

I particulary liked the interchange between Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Mr. Kidman...I mean Cruise.

But I must admit that Jerry McGuire is one of my guilty pleasure movies.

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

I'm dying. This was laugh out loud funny. Tom Cruise is such a turd....

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

A Skunkturd, that is!

VE said...

ronda - I have it on DVD...don't tell anyone.

arizona - Excellent use of a previous post in a comment! The gnomes are smiling...

Anne said...

It's been a long time since I've seen that movie, thanks for the refresher. Funny, though, I thought Cuba said something about the bartender movie in that scene, too.

Janna said...

So very, very very true.
Someone should send this to Tom Cruise.
Of course, then you'd be stalked and harassed by religious nuts your entire life.
It'd give you lots to blog about, though!

VE said...

anne - Ha! Cocktail. Good call. THAT was a winner, huh?

janna - I've made a successful run from Oprah so I can take on these Scientologist zealots too!

Uncivil said...

He was OK in "The Last Samurai"
I would consider that his best work.

VE said...

uncivil - He was obnoxious in A Few Good Men but I like that movie for some reason. I have no idea why.
