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.

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

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.

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.

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.

More of a straight romance movie than a romantic comedy, "Just Wright" is sweet enough, without being cloistering, to satisfy its audience.

Screen royalty elevates Just Wright from the rom-com heap.

Thankfully, Just Wright avoids the genre's current reputation to be better than expected - if just barely.

From the minute that Queen Latifah and Common share a scene together in this relatively light romantic tale, their combined screen charisma blends together in way that makes the generic script that follows much easier to take.
