Reviews

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

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie!! 19 July 2011
By Penzz
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars what i thought 7 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable but good 14 Sep 2011
By mel
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice film but... 15 May 2011
Format:DVD
I like Queen Latifah and I give her props to the message in this film which was nice for ladies with curves or as my grandma would say 'Fluffy Divas' but she seems to do these types of films more often than not 'Last Holiday'(triumph over adversity and bags the handsome guy etc) and I know that she is a much better actress. It's a nice feel good film for a Sunday afternoon but I hope Latifah is offered much more credible roles that can show her true ability as an actress.

By Pollyju

This is a brilliant film again featuring Queen Latifah, this time she plays Leslie a senior physiotherapist in a rehab centre, Common (Scott) plays a NBA basketball player. Leslie's cousin is a gold digger and is out to trap her and NBA basketball player, and her sights are set on Scott, watch the movie and see what happens.
