tries to do too many things
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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

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.

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.

Just Wright's heart is in the right place. It just doesn't know what to do with it.

Flips the over-expressed male fantasy of the socially awkward guy who somehow ends up with the hottest girl.

Just about bearable.

A bland Cinderella story that never steps out of its comfort zone.

It might not be the blandest rom-com youve ever seen, but its sure within striking distance.

Utterly predictable, unbearably trite.

Easy-going and sweet-natured, this "romantic sports comedy" finally dissolves into a gooey mess of over-cooked comfort food.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Daily Mail (UK)
September 16, 2010
It's rescued by the warmth of the two central performances. It also makes a pleasant change to see a woman of generous proportions land a handsome guy.

Take a pro basketball player with a career-threatening knee injury and an ugly-duckling nurse and you've got the blueprint for a steamroller of sopp that knows no shame.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Empire Magazine
September 15, 2010
Likeable turns from Queen Latifah, Common and Pam Grier elevate the fairly rote material -- no big surprises here -- into a fun, basketball-based spin on the romantic-comedy.

If film titles get any lazier than this, I'm flying to Hollywood and setting fire to the Writers' Guild HQ building.

For the romatically inclined, it's just right.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Matthew Turner
September 15, 2010
Stays watchable thanks to a charming, likeable performance from Queen Latifah, but it's also insipid, predictable, overlong and occasionally annoying.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A good formula movie and it goes down its structural checklist with a sense of Úlan, a variation or two and a freshness in terms of the characters.
