Overall, this is a good little movie to see and not take seriously. I like the fact for once both love interests intentions are honorable and such, but it was all too predictable. 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. I didn't mind this, and it kept me watching. This is about a professional relationship growing into friendship growing into something more without the use of the woman falling over every ten seconds or getting out her over-sized knickers to get laughs, which is another quality I loved about Just Wright.
But after he gets injured she reveals shes just the same shallow person she always was and decides to leave him. Every time she went off screen I wouldn't shut my eyes because I knew she'd be back in just a minute. 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. 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. Common himself is also pretty good, not as good as Latifah, but good. 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.
After she gets him hooked up with her no less than shallow friend Morgan Alexander Paula Patton she thinks he changed her for the better. 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. The finale itself also reeks of clichés, and turns into your typical Romance ending. 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.
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. If you like Queen Latifah as an actress, then you need to watch this as she gives out a very good performance. 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. 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. Queen Latifah shows us everything she's got in Just Wright, a charming romantic comedy about finding true love right in front of you. Read more reviews at: www. 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. Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade has amusing cameos. Common for about half way through the film was not putting on a very good show. It felt like there was just a lot of stuff missing from the movie but it was thanks to Queen Latifah's performance that made it worth the watch. 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.
Queen Latifah is purely the heart of this film. Rashad Of Cosby fame and Pam Grier do well as the respected parents. Like when Morgan asks for forgiveness it just looked like he didn't learn a single thing. With charming performances and a good story along with it, this beats quite a few movies in its genre. Her performance is electrifying and full of energy and charisma, but the script just doesn't back all that up unfortunately. Most of the time he would make himself look pretty naive. The movie might be predictable but it works because of the charm and the likable leads.
For starters, it's possible yes, but am I really supposed to believe a big star like Scott McKnight Common could be that nice? 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. 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. So now with the help of Leslie, Scott is having to find the strength to go on to save his career and maybe find love in process. While I have to give the character praise for being a man who still has faith in mankind even after what he goes through. In the end the film was enjoyable maybe if it was someone else besides Queen Latifah then the movie would've been ruined for me. A movie mostly meant for people who just want to see Queen Latifah at one of her best moments.
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. She is everything a Woman should be in this world, and she pulled it off with conviction and believability. Some people may think Just Wright is another one of those movies that mixes predictable romantic-comedies with sport and while they might be right, the movie is much more than that. 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. 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.
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. But it could have been so much more, and it deserved more with all the effort the cast gave to it. The chemistry between Queen Latifah and Comm0n was brilliant and very believable. 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. There were moments of comedy but nothing truly funny to make me laugh out loud.
The performances aren't a question, in fact it's arguable that all of them were either above average or great, it's just the script is too phony and a bit too weak. 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. 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. She clearly put every ounce of effort she had in this movie, and it shows. 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.
