  • It's one thing for a romantic comedy to be predictable - they all end at the same destination, after all. But it's quite another thing to be predictable at every twist and turn of the story. show more

  • Michael Elliot, the Philadelphia native who wrote Just Wright as a vehicle for Latifah - and who was on set for most of the shoot - says that Common's earnestness, and eagerness, and his sense of responsibility in carrying the movie, were palpable. show more

  • The chemistry between the leads is more cozy than sexy, but the biggest issue is Latifah's noticeable - and admirable - discomfort with the rom-com clichés found throughout Michael Elliot's screenplay. show more

    I saw myself in this movie as Queen Latifah so much (daddys girl,always just a friend, and love the game) still waiting for my " one I can't live without and him feeling me that way as well. Great teaching tool for young men to see who they should choose instead of who uses them.

    I just love, love, LOVED this movie! It is a great African American love story surronding one of my favorite sports. I thought Latifah and Common did an amazing job of showing how friendship can blossom into love.
