Consensus: Well-intentioned but formulaic, Just Wright has winning leads but can't overcome its preponderance of cliches.

Lisa Rosman
Time Out

Although it's replete with solid supporting players and even stronger goodwill, Just Wright buckles under the burden of its pure intentions. Too many auxiliary, moralizing plot points and characters are picked up, only to be suddenly dropped.

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.

I like this movie a lot.

You can almost see the studio accountants counting the demographic hot spots Just Wright should connect with as the movie reels by.

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.

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.

The audience, much like Latifah, is surprised and utterly won over by Common's disarming, nice guy affability beneath the intimidating aura.

Enjoyable, but one of those abrupt endings that I hate.
Bentley Lyles
Its sweet, funny, and watchable. The two leads are great together. But this is the typical, predictable, boy-meets-girl romcom with cliches. Apart from that,… More

Pretty standard romance movie. The acting isn't great,but i've seen worse. I usually don't like queen latifah,but she was decent here.

Just Wright is a mess of a romantic comedy where the biggest star in the NBA Scott McKnight (Common) ends up inadvertently meeting physical therapist Leslie… More
