Just Wright

Just Wright Release Date: May 14, 2010

The movie “Just Wright” stars Queen Latifah as Leslie Wright, a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight (Common). All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie’s gorgeous childhood friend Morgan (Paula Patton), who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play the role of “best friend” forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him? Set against the exciting world of championship basketball, the game of love takes on the battle of the sexes in the romantic sports comedy “Just Wright,” starring three of Hollywood’s most charismatic personalities as they navigate the full-court-press of love.Who cares that it’s an open Hollywood secret that Queen Latifah is a lesbian, in real life. She’s an ‘actress,’ and we won’t laugh at her PG rated love scenes with Common, any more than we do when we see Tom Cruise sucking female face on the big screen. Our main reason for loving “Just Wright,” Pam Grier, the actress who pulled off one of the best performances never nominated for an Oscar: “Jackie Brown.”
