Just Wright

Sanaa Hamri (2010)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Every romantic comedy needs its Mr Right, but the fact that the woman searching for him in this fluffy outing is called Ms Wright tells you a lot about just how low it sets its comic sights. It's a Cinderella fantasy set in the world of NBA basketball with hip-hop stars Queen Latifah and Common as an unlikely pair of would-be lovers. She's a plus-sized physical therapist, he's a multimillionaire player for the New Jersey Nets recuperating from a busted knee. Romance blossoms over ice packs, half-time pep talks and a shared passion for - gulp - Joni Mitchell. Over-familiar and overlong, Just Wright would be totally wrong if it weren't for its likeable cast: Queen Latifah's big-hearted charm is nicely matched by Common's laid-back ease, while Paula Patton squeezes into designer fashions as the wannabe WAG caught in the ensuing love triangle.


A physical therapist is delighted to get a prestigious job treating a star basketball player. She falls for her patient, leaving her conflicted and fearing for the consequences to her career if she pursues a relationship. However, he seems more interested in her best friend. Romantic comedy, starring Queen Latifah, Common, Paula Patton and Pam Grier.
