Product Description

Leslie Wright (Queen Latifah) is a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight (Common). Love blossoms between the two but Leslie's childhood friend Morgan, who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife, begins to win the affections of McKnight raising the question - is Leslie destined to play the role of "best friend" forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him?

From Amazon.co.uk

If you've ever doubted that Queen Latifah is a movie star, watch Just Wright. It's not that Just Wright is a great movie--it isn't. It's a perfectly capable romantic comedy with some lovely touches and some typical clichés. The plot--physical therapist Leslie Wright (Latifah) becomes the personal therapist to basketball star Scott McKnight (rapper Common) after a devastating injury, and gradually, love blossoms--isn't really the point. What makes the movie work are little moments of pain and pleasure, such as the flicker of betrayal when Leslie watches her mother give a pair of heirloom earrings to Leslie's prettier childhood pal, Morgan (Paula Patton, Precious), or the hesitation, followed by a leap, when Leslie and Scott have their first kiss. Director Sanaa Hamri, who also made the unjustly ignored interracial romance Something New, has an excellent eye for the details of how people interact; she never forgets that people rarely know what they're going to do until they actually do it, so her movies are in a constant state of discovery. She draws a new vulnerability out of Queen Latifah, who usually coasts on a sassy, breezy confidence. Just Wright is about a woman who's quietly endured a thousand indignities and tries not to let her unhappiness show--which is what makes it so engaging. This sort of performance doesn't win awards, but it makes this sort of movie an unexpected pleasure. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
Synopsis:
This is a romantic feel good movie about a young physiotherapist (Queen Latifah)who's been out of luck on the dating scene. One evening she meets a pro basketball player who invites her to a party. On the night of the party ,before she can get a word in, her trendier more fabulous cousin dives in and lands the basketball player for herself.
The movie then shows the cousin's relationship with the basketball player, which later turns sour. After their break up the man seems to then take a liking to Q.Latifah who's been a good friend to him all along. But as with all rom coms, they face problems and their relationship goes pear shaped. The ending is touching yet satistfying.

General Thoughts:
The movie is fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it becuase it is a great African American movie which portrays middle class working black people in a good neighbourhood without the usual "hustling, violence, gang and drugs cliche" often prevalent in many Afican American movies.

This movie was awesome! Queen Latifah is always funny, regardless of what film she's in & common provided a great male lead. I really enjoyed the basketball theme as well as the rom/com part. STRONGLY RECOMMEND if you enjoy sports films with 'a bit more to them' or even just romantic comedy without the basketball. WORTH WATCHING!!

Queen L is such a cheerful and pleasant actress that she natutally makes a mediocre story shine. This film was no exception. It was simple story line and very predictable but very easy and relaxing to watch especially after a hard week. Queen L being a normal size woman made her character easy to identify with. WOuld highly recommend.

I received my Just Wright DVD in the mail last week. And the quality is absolutely wonderful! Just Wright is definitely one of my all-time favorite rom-coms. Such a beautiful story(I'm just a sucker for the whole "Cinderella" theme--LOVE the moment when Leslie walks downstairs in her beautiful evening gown and Scott just gazes adoringly at her--*sigh*). And I love the whole mixture of romance + pro-basketball...very refreshing. And wow--such AMAZING chemistry between Queen Latifah & Common! They really brought their characters to life. Both gave stellar performances all the way through. I was rooting for Leslie from the beginning to the end. So refreshing to see an average, "girl-next-door" type get the guy. I love that Leslie didn't have to change who she was. She remained genuine and down-to-earth til the very end. And what a beautiful, heartwarming moment when Scott finally realizes that Leslie's "The One". I highly recommend this movie to anyone who's in the mood for a fun, charming, feel-good romantic comedy.

The Wright in question is the curvy & talented Leslie Wright (Queen Latifah -Taxi) a physical therapist, who is looking for Mr right to settle down with. She is a huge NBA fan(Pro.Basketball) and one day gets the chance to meet one of the teams(New Jersey Nets) players, Scott McKnight (Common -Date Night)who she gets along really well with. However, Leslie's old high school friend who lives with her, Morgan Alexander (Paula Patton -Precious) , who is a slim & skinny version of Leslie, but she happens to be a shallow gold digger basically. Who moves in on McKnight's liking for her, and it's not long untill they are engaged, much to the dismay of Leslie, who knows whats she is like.

But after a freak carrer threatning injury, it's not long untill McKnight realises who his firends are. but will he be able to see the Wood through the trees ?

Overall i really liked this film, it's nice to see Queen Latifah at work & she has an array of recognisable faces in support. Pam Grier (Jackie Brown) & James Pickens Jr.(Grey's Anatomy[Dr.Webber]) play Leslie's parents, while Phylicia Rashad (

A Physical Therapist (Queen Latifah) falls for the American football star (Common) she’s helping only to find he’s not surprisingly interested in her gorgeous friend (Paula Patton) whose set her sights on acquired a trophy husband.

You may love Queen Latifah - but watching "Just Wright" on the new fangled format of BLU RAY is going to be a problem for UK and European film fans.

Unfortunately as of March 2014 - this American-Only 20th Century Fox BLU RAY is REGION A LOCKED - so it will not play on the vast majority of our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which most aren't).

Until such time as someone on this side of the pond sees fit to release this rather engaging sporting love triangle on BLU RAY - it's wait and see...

I watched this on the plane journey to Canada, had seen the trailer before & was glad they had this on the playlist,as am a fan of Queen Latifah & her films. Paula Patton is another great actress in this (who has also got a great role in the film Precious) I found this movie to be really enjoyable, funny & sweet. The film isn't gonna win any awards for originality, but doesn't stop it being worth watching!! Great for a rainy afternoon & you feel like something lighthearted to watch. Will definitely watch this over & over as purchased my own copy on DVD now. If you like films like How Stella Got Her Groove back & Last Holiday am sure this will be up your street!!
