Product Overview

Queen Latifah and Common deliver slam-dunk entertainment in this charming story of hoops, hope, and the game of love. Leslie Wright (Latifah) is a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with injured NBA star Scott McKnight (Common). Leslie not only whips Scott into shape, she helps take his game to the next level and all is going well...until Leslie finds herself falling for him. Oblivious to her growing affection, Scott only has eyes for Morgan (Paula Patton), Leslie's sexy and seductive friend. With everything on the line, Leslie must take her best shot and find out if she and Scott are just right for each other.

Review One reason people like Queen Latifah is that she likes herself. In most of her roles, she radiates cheer. She can play grim, as in Bringing Out the Dead, but she has a natural sunniness that makes me, at least, feel good. And she is a real woman, not a skinny woman with too many sharp angles. Jennifer Aniston, who looks perfectly great, makes me worry about her about her self-image when she talks about the baby food diet...Latifah has never been fat. She has always been plus-size. There is a difference. She is healthy, fit, carries herself with confidence, and looks terrific in Just Wright in the kind of clothing a physical therapist might feel comfortable wearing. If you're dragging around feeling low about yourself, you want to know her secret...This is not a discussion of the Queen's body, however; it's about the whole gestalt. One of the reasons she's the star of Just Wright is that few people, and certainly no one in this film, can hold the screen against her. As with many other stars, when she's in a shot, it's about her...After Scott gets a knee injury and Leslie becomes his special duty therapist, the trick is to not rush in the direction the movie is obviously moving. Director Sanaa Hamri accomplishes this. She and writer Michael Elliot add enough detail and actual dialogue (you know, people talking about things in more than one syllable) so that we enjoy the growing closer process. Paula Patton's Morgan is a self-centered egotist and no good at care-giving, but hey, that's built into the role...Hamri is herself an actor-director, with an interesting background; she directed two of Prince's TV specials, and the very good Something New (2006), starring Sanaa Lathan (no relation). That was another film about a woman and man gradually discovering they're in love, which is always more fun than the first-sight deal. Here Common isn't called upon to do much heavy lifting in the acting department, but he plays well with Queen Latifah. Sure, the movie is a formula. A formula that works reminds us of why it became a formula.

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly ...fans will be pleased by additional proof that Latifah is a lovable Queen but not a pampered princess.
Lou Lumenick, New York Post A very rare contemporary romantic comedy that doesn't succumb to terminal stupidity.
