More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    Here Common isn't called upon to do much heavy lifting in the acting department, but he plays well with Queen Latifah. Sure, the movie is a formula. A formula that works reminds us of why it became a formula.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The reason Just Wright works is simple. It finds ways to let familiar characters move around inside a familiar premise like living, breathing, likable human beings.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A very rare contemporary romantic comedy that doesn't succumb to terminal stupidity.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    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.

  • Calvin Wilson

    The been-there, done-that nature of the plot doesn't take away from the undeniable sweetness found in Just Wright.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The movie is a rigged game of clichés and platitudes, but fans will be pleased by additional proof that Latifah is a lovable Queen but not a pampered princess.

  • Amy Nicholson

    Two hours of femmepowering wish fulfillment.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    A film so tightly rigged that even its star's centrifugal charms can't keep you fully checked in.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    If you can overlook that last little bit of sports fantasy, you just might like Just Wright.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Just Wright is as formulaic as they come, but at its core is a surprisingly tender romantic drama.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    A formulaic sports romance with the texture of a strawberry smoothie.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    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.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    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.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Even within the most formulaic of genres, this Cinderella tale is uncommonly predictable.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Telegraphs its every move. There are simply no surprises.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    With her (Latifah), Just Wright feels hampered by arbitrary contrivances; without her, it wouldn't be enough movie to exist at all.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    That it squanders a terrific cast in the process -- one that also includes Common, Phylicia Rashad and Pam Grier -- makes it all the more disappointing.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Nothing seems real here, with everything too broadly drawn.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Lisa Rosmon

    Too much of this love triangle rings false.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Queen Latifah's warmth has boosted middling movies like "Beauty Shop" and "Last Holiday," but she and costar Common can't strike enough sparks to ignite this weak romantic comedy.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It's light in tone, feather-weight. But there aren't many laughs in it.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    You can't just cast an appealing actress in the lead role -- in this case Queen Latifah ("Valentine's Day, " "The Secret Life of Bees") -- and expect her to do all the heavy lifting.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Pleasant but dull formula film.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    Another movie, not as awful as this one, might one day find better use for the easygoing vibe between Queen Latifah and Common, the stars of Just Wright.

    Nearly everything about Just Wright is just wrong.
