Story


JUST WRIGHT stars Queen Latifah (BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE, VALENTINE'S DAY) as Leslie Wright, a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight (Common - DATE NIGHT). All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslies gorgeous childhood friend Morgan (Paula Patton - PRECIOUS), who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play the role of best friend forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him? Set against the exciting world of championship basketball, the game of love takes on the battle of the sexes in the romantic sports comedy JUST WRIGHT, starring three of Hollywood's most charismatic personalities as they navigate the full-court-press of love.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..The movie is a rigged game of cliches and platitudes, but fans will be pleased by additional proof that Latifah is a lovable Queen but not a pampered princess..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..Still, the been-there, done-that nature of the plot doesn't take away from the undeniable sweetness found in "Just Wright"..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
“.."Just Wright" is as formulaic as they come, but at its core is a surprisingly tender romantic drama about two people falling in love in what feels gratifyingly like real-time..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
