Editorial Reviews

Just wright stars queen latifah (bringing down the house; valentine's day) as leslie wright; a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with nba all-star scott mcknight (common date night). All is going well until leslie finds herself falling for scott; forcing her to choose between the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures; mcknight is instead drawn to the affections of leslie's gorgeous childhood friend morgan (paula patton - precious); who has her sights set on being an nba trophy wife. 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? Set against the exciting world of championship basketball; the game of love takes on the battle of the sexes in the romantic sports comedy just wright; starring three of hollywood's most charismatic personalities as they navigate the full-court-press of love.

JUST WRIGHT

STARRING: Queen Latifah, Common, Paula Patton, Pam Grier, James Pickens Jr. and Phylicia Rashad

WRITTEN BY: Michael Elliot

DIRECTED BY: Sanaa Hamri

Rated: PG
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: 14 May 2010
Review Date: 25 May 2010

It's been refreshing seeing so many romantic comedies as of late, that were not only good, but clean as well. Leap Year, Letters to Juliet and now Just Wright, have all been very tasty films and were all rated PG.

The adorable Queen Latifah who is one of the few people in Hollywood you can tell has a good soul just by looking at her; stars as Leslie Wright. All of Leslie's life, she has been the `friend' to charming and available guys. No one has ever wanted to be more than that with her in the end, and to add insult to injury, guys tend to fall for her best friend Morgan (Paula Patton).

Morgan is indeed beautiful, but then so is Leslie, and only an idiot wouldn't be able to smell Morgan's BS from a mile away. But then again there are a lot of idiots in the world, so this makes it easier for those of us with two or more brain cells watching, to accept this in the film.

To call Morgan high maintenance would be the understatement of the century. At least she is honest with Leslie about her intentions however, which was one of two small problems I had with this great film.

The first being that I just can't buy that Leslie would after all these years be friends with someone so manipulative and deceitful. Morgan has made it her mission in life, to wed a cash flow. Whereas Leslie you see, is basically every bit as sweet as the real Queen Latifah.

I love this movie so much. I have watched this movie at least 4 times since I purchased it. Every time I watch it I always feel so positive about meeting the right man for me. Queen Latifah and Common had such great chemistry. Paula Patton was just too cute and funny. James Pickens Jr., Phylicia Rashad and Pam Greir were so good as the parents. The story was so positive. It is too bad that Hollywood doesn't produce more postive movies about African-American relationships like this.

You know me. I'm very critical of romantic comedies. That doesn't always prevent me from enjoying them, however. I enjoyed "Just Wright" very much, in large part because of Queen Latifah, whose character, Leslie Wright, is caring, independent, warm, self assured, and genuinely likeable. Her only flaw is not being able to find a man that wants to be more than friends, and even then you can't really blame her because she is trying. Part of the problem is her godsister and best friend, Morgan (Paula Patton), a shallow man hunter who gets what she wants ... even if Leslie had it first. Morgan is classically beautiful and not yet thirty, and loves dressing fancy wherever she goes. Leslie is thirty-five and has curves, and while she certainly can dress nicely, she isn't opposed to casual clothing, either.

Movies like this are inherently contrived, so liking them really has nothing to do with believing in them. It has more to do with how they present themselves, if they're pleasant and fun and have good characters. "Just Wright" exudes such charm and goodwill that it entertains at a fundamentally emotional level. I also appreciated the fact that, while there's almost nothing plausible about what leads to the obligatory romance, the romance itself is compelling, focusing more on the process of falling in love than the end result. Anyone can capture immature puppy love on camera and call it a movie, but we don't often see older characters allowing something to develop naturally.

Here's the story. Leslie, a New Jersey physical therapist and Basketball fan, has a chance encounter with Scott McKnight (Common), a star player for the Nets and a recent free agent. He's decent enough and seems to like her. He even invites her to his birthday party.

I love Queen Latifah. She is a lovely talented woman. Her portrayal of Leslie Wright is so real I felt like I knew her. The first time I saw this, I'd never heard of Common. But he portrays a very decent man in special circumstances with an ease that makes his Scott McKnight seem sweet, down to earth, and loyal.

I think the reasons I like this movie are these: 1. There is a running message to believe in your self-worth. 2. As the cover shows, there is an attraction between the two leads. And it's always nice to see someone who is not considered a traditional body style actually be the lead and a potential love interest. 3. The soundtrack is very good! As a music lover, I always pay attention to the soundtrack. (Look for "Feet on Fire" by Dude 'n Nem for a high energy, kick butt, motivating song!) 4. I love love. :)
