Featuring one of the most unexpected romantic pairings this spring movie season, 'Just Wright' tells the fictional story of NBA All-Star Scott McKnight (Common), a big-time player who suffers a crippling injury. A no-nonsense physical therapist, played by Queen Latifah, helps him get back on his feet and falls in love with him during the rehabilitation process. Fortunately, the feeling might be mutual.

In her third directorial effort, Sanaa Hamri has crafted a well-intentioned but cliched romantic comedy about the pratfalls that plague a working relationship that turns into something more. The critics mostly agree that there is not one original idea in this rehashed love-fest. They do point out, though, that Queen Latifah is a breath of fresh air, proving once again she radiates a sweetly effervescent presence on-screen. Paula Patton, Phylicia Rashad and Pam Grier also star.
