Critics Consensus

Well-intentioned but formulaic, Just Wright has winning leads but can't overcome its preponderance of cliches.

    if you ever want to vomit and laugh at the same time, watch a Queen Latifah movie.

    Pretty standard romance movie. The acting isn't great,but i've seen worse. I usually don't like queen latifah,but she was decent here.

    Queen Latifah plays Leslie Wright, a physical therapist and Basketball fan who is tired of being the girl that guys want to hang out with but not be with. She lives with her beautiful Godsister, Morgan, who wants to be an NBA trophy wife and live out the rest of her days shopping, dining, and looking good for photographers. After attending a Nets game, Leslie has a chance encounter with the Nets star player, Scott McKnight (Common), who seems to like her. He even invites her to his birthday party. All prospects of starting a relationship are seemingly shot when Morgan tags along; and of course McKnight is immediately attracted to Morgan. After a whirlwind romance the two get engaged. All seems to be going to Morgan's plan until McKnight suffers a possibly career ending injury. Imagining that her multi-millionaire NBA star fiancé will somehow become penniless because of this, Morgan decides to leave him. And Leslie is the only one who can fix him nursing him back to health with a Rocky style training montage. Queen Latifah's Leslie is a lovely woman - strong, independent, funny, kind, warm and caring and it is really hard not to like her. Of course this film will make you go all mushy in the end, but what do you expect? It's a romantic comedy.

    I wanted to like this because I love Queen Latifah, and the story was good, but it just didn't play out like it could have. Also, Common is a pretty terrible actor.
