2.5 of 4

“..Yet with its appealing cast, handsome packaging and enjoyably old-fashioned sensibility, Just Wright often exceeds the expectations that its formulaic content otherwise creates..”
by Jason Anderson [Toronto Star]
1.5 of 4

“..ust Wright flounders, slick as an NBA commercial, pretty as a Jersey-in-spring postcard..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2 of 4

“..The sad thing is, this film had some promise..”
by Jeff Vice [Deseret News]
Review rate : B

“..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]
“..That absolutely no chemistry exists between them as love interests is the first of the many flaws in a film that also demands we believe the New Jersey Nets could become Eastern Conference champions..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..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]
“..Painting by numbers often gets a bad rap: While it takes little originality to fill in the romantic-comedy blanks, even a simple, competent job can sometimes feel like a breath of fresh air..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
Review rate : C

“..Lest anyone need a reminder that conflict is the engine of drama, Just Wright provides a blandly agreeable one..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V Club]
3 of 5

“..Latifah has talent and personality to spare, so it would be great to see her taking on more romantic roles. But to sell herself short in the process? Clearly, even she knows that's just wrong..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..Just trite..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..If you can overlook that last little bit of sports fantasy, you just might like Just Wright..”
by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald]
2 of 4

“..formulaic treacle predicated on giving the audience no more or less than it expects..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
1.5 of 4

“..Even the title announces, "We're not really making an effort here"..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
2 of 5

“.."Just Wright" is probably best thought of as a fairy tale, from start to finish..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2.5 of 4

“.."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]
2 of 4

“.."Just Wright" has the right actress - in the wrong movie..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
