...a superior romantic comedy...
May 26, 2010
A good formula movie and it goes down its structural checklist with a sense of lan, a variation or two and a freshness in terms of the characters.

Hamri has grown more and more confident over her last three pictures, and she has learned to calmly focus on characters and small moments.

Sometimes, the stars and a smart script can outshine a formulaic framework.
May 22, 2010
More of a straight romance movie than a romantic comedy, "Just Wright" is sweet enough, without being cloistering, to satisfy its audience.
May 20, 2010
I just wish there had been more chemistry between the leads, because if there had been maybe I could have more easily overlooked all my major problems with the production.

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

Hollywood stereotype keeps Latifah stuck in neo-Mammy mode. And Latifah isn't a good enough actress to reveal emotional aspiration; neither she nor Patton bring depth to the phenomenon of women who orbit around successful athletes.

I like this movie a lot.

Queen Latifah is just right as the lead in this romantic comedy
May 16, 2010
Queen Latifah's talents are wasted in this bland Cinderella story set against a professional sports backdrop.

Director Sanaa Hamri doesn't care about the NBA superstar thing. Common's character is just there to smile while we're constantly told Leslie (Latifah) isn't good enough for him.
May 15, 2010
A love story needs two sides to work -- and a love triangle, three -- and Common is simply unable to generate any chemistry with his co-stars.
May 15, 2010
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
Positive messages galore in formulaic, teen-friendly romcom.
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.
May 14, 2010
Just Wright tries to soften everybody's rough edges by the end, to an extent that defies dramatic logic.
May 14, 2010
This ugly-duckling romance is as stale as last week's bagel.
