Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I like this movie a lot."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"You can almost see the studio accountants counting the demographic hot spots Just Wright should connect with as the movie reels by."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"tries to do too many things"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"You've seen it before -- it lifts from Pretty Woman and The Truth About Cats & Dogs, to name a couple -- but you won't hate seeing it again."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"Just about bearable."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Technically speaking, this is a romantic sports comedy. We don't get many films in which these elements work well as a team."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Just Wright is an easy enough way to pass an afternoon, and it is refreshing to see a plus-sized woman on screen that isn't, for one second, fretting about her weight."
‑ Mary F. Pols, MSN Movies
"All of this predictability and retreading of the same old formula just makes for one long, stretched-out film that leaves the audience waiting for the inevitable to happen."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Just Wright's heart is in the right place. It just doesn't know what to do with it."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"A bland Cinderella story that never steps out of its comfort zone."
‑ , Daily Express
"Intersperses the suds with zippy basketball sequences that feature NBA pros, and a hip-hop soundtrack that steers the film to a mild, steady beat."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Latifah and Common create something that's all too rare in contemporary romantic comedies, and that's the sense that their characters actually, you know, like each other."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The audience, much like Latifah, is surprised and utterly won over by Common's disarming, nice guy affability beneath the intimidating aura."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Flips the over-expressed male fantasy of the socially awkward guy who somehow ends up with the hottest girl."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"It might not be the blandest rom-com youve ever seen, but its sure within striking distance."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
