I like the fact for once both love interests intentions are honorable and such, but it was all too predictable. The only thing is, Leslie wants their relationship to be more than professional, however her cousin Morgan wants to be a wife to any basketball player and her eyes are on Scott. Read more reviews at: www. Just Wright is about Leslie Wright, a physical therapist who is also a massive basketball fan and so, when she gets the opportunity to become Scott McKnight's physical therapist, she is over the moon. All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig and the tug-of-war inside her heart.
Most of the time he would make himself look pretty naive. When Morgan comes back asking for forgiveness Scott has to make a choice between the beautiful girl or the girl whose beauty shows on the outside and inside. I actually enjoyed bits and pieces of this movie, it was really starting off well, but it didn't take long to head into a downward spiral. . Common himself is also pretty good, not as good as Latifah, but good.
The chemistry between Queen Latifah and Comm0n was brilliant and very believable. The greatest quality about the movie is the story. The acting was good and was a massive strength of the movie and Queen Latifah and Common stand out from the entire cast with their marvellous performances as their characters. And I think it would've been good to see more of the problems in the relationship between Leslie and her mother something to help add to the drama of the film. I don't have anything bad to say about Just Wright, it's one of those movies that's good to watch because of it's nice and charming story and characters.
Also, another thing that I loved about Just Wright is the fact that the leads are different to the usual characters you see in romantic-comedy movies and shows that love comes in all shapes and sizes, which was a nice change to see. While the story was good and there were a few funny moments I'm afraid it really didn't do anything for me. I think while it was annoying to see someone be so gullible and fall for acts like those it really helped the rest of the movie by giving the character something to change about himself and add to the drama of the film. But there were performances that really didn't get to me like Queen Latifah did. Common for about half way through the film was not putting on a very good show. Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade has amusing cameos.
The story is about Leslie Wright Queen Latifah a physical therapist who goes to a Nets game and ends up meeting her favorite basketball player Scott McKnight Common. Rashad Of Cosby fame and Pam Grier do well as the respected parents. Watch it just for Latifah, her performance is worth the price of admission. A movie mostly meant for people who just want to see Queen Latifah at one of her best moments. Even though it's predictable from the first sixty seconds of the movie and had many rom-com clichés, it doesn't spoil the movie because the story was just very charming and is one of those heart-warming stories that will make you smile all the time. The comedy used in Just Wright is basically through charm, the lines that Queen Latifah and Common's characters use can make you giggle in some parts.
To those who plan on making romantic-comedy movies, take a leaf out of this movie's book as the film was what the movie title suggests. It's very predictable and you'll more than likely guess everything within the first minute of the movie but it's such a charming movie and the story is a good story to follow. All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig and the tug-of-war inside her heart. So as you would expect, Just Wright is yet another predictable and cliché romantic comedy, however this is different as this is actually very enjoyable. Queen Latifah is purely the heart of this film.
Queen Latifah and Common both have done a great job in playing their characters and adding charm to the movie. For starters, it's possible yes, but am I really supposed to believe a big star like Scott McKnight Common could be that nice? Paula Patton plays her deceiving, greedy role to a T, showing a little heart at the end. I saw the story that was being told and at first I thought I'd enjoy it but I walked out of the theater with a little more emptiness than when I walked in. The performance by Queen Latifah saved the movie for me while it wouldn't be my first choice its a good movie to watch just to see Queen Latifah do what she does best. The movie might be predictable but it works because of the charm and the likable leads. With charming performances and a good story along with it, this beats quite a few movies in its genre. Queen Latifah shows us everything she's got in Just Wright, a charming romantic comedy about finding true love right in front of you.
This isn't one of your usual Zellwegger romantic comedies where a ditzy woman falls in love with her perfect guy who she clapped eyes on in the first minute and slapstick comedy ensues. It just felt a bit too dreamy to me, and while I think it would be lovely for today's world, I really don't see that happening. She clearly put every ounce of effort she had in this movie, and it shows. Her performance is electrifying and full of energy and charisma, but the script just doesn't back all that up unfortunately. He's charmingly nice Bit too nice if you ask me and did as much as he could, while having competent and believable chemistry with Latifah. Just Wright really should have sunk with the very predictable story and the romantic-comedy clichés but writer Michael Elliot and director Sanaa Hamri have made it work and have both done a great job on this movie, you can tell the attention has been put into it.
