Latifah and Common have great chemistry and it's another romance where we like both of them and want to see them happy.

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

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.

For the romatically inclined, it's just right.

As romantic dramedies go, this one has a tinge of originality ...

Queen Latifah is just right as the lead in this romantic comedy

Queen Latifah has enough chemistry with her costar Common to make you believe that she's really falling for him

Screen royalty elevates Just Wright from the rom-com heap.
May 14, 2010
Thankfully, Just Wright avoids the genre's current reputation to be better than expected - if just barely.
May 14, 2010
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.
