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?
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

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.
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.
All the actors are good and believable and the basketball is good too. Common seems to be a very good player.
Queen Latifah is a fabulous music turn actor. One of the few that have crossed over and actually do it well (without making you cringe. Will Smith and Ice Cube being others (in my humble and personal opinion) And of course Common.
Good story line which is believable. Your just willing them to get together :-)
I think even the fella's will like this. Not too mushy. (I hate mushy lol)
