Frank’s character however, is incorporated into the movie to show one of Jerry’s many stressful moments of failure when he loses Cushman as a client later on in the movie. It also shows how Maguire treats and handles Rod Tidwell who ends up being the only one who keeps him as an agent. Maguire desires Cushman to gain his success and Tidwell desires Maguire to “Show him the Money.” Bob Sugar is the villain of this movie and is constantly trying to make Jerry’s life miserable. He does a pretty good job of this. From here…
