User reviews on Just Wright
I totally disagree with you Matt. Movies that are ROMANTIC COMEDIES are supossed to be well.. Romantic. True,there is a formula that Hollywood uses to tell stories. Thats actually okay. Cary Grant did plenty, Fred Astaire in Plenty, I think its that we are not comfortable with who should be the idea of a romantic comedy lead. The "Just Wright" title tells you that this is going to be a romantic movie. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to lead you in the right direction- come on! One other thing, You asked why would the lead Male character go after a mean girl when the kind decent girl is standing in the wings? Men are not exactly the brightest when it comes to T&A and you don't need a movie title to tell you that. I don't always want to see movies that blow up everything and Snakes on a Plane? Please! You threw up the softball and I'll just hit it. Just Wright? So Right!
A movie's title should tell you something about the movie. As goofy as it was, I knew what Snakes On A Plane was about when I saw the title. I expected to see snakes, and I expected them to be on a plane. That's what I got. Just Wright is one of those movie titles that doesn't tell me ANYTHING about the movie. It's vague, and worse, just boring. Unfortunately, the title reflects the movie, a cliched Cinderella story that I've seen told a bunch of other times in much better fashion.
The film stars Queen Latifah as Leslie Wright (get it?), a physical therapist, big fan of the New Jersey Nets, and perpetual single woman. She meets the Nets' biggest star, Scott McKnight (Common), who invites her to a party at his house. She goes, but decides to bring her gold digging friend Morgan (Paula Patton), and wouldn't you know it, Morgan gets Scott to fall for her. Things go along just as you would expect, until the big twist: Scott injures his knee, and guess who becomes his therapist? Yeah, I knew you could figure it out for yourself. You can also figure out where the movie goes from here.
Everything here just seems too contrived. Why would Scott go for such a bitch when he could have a sweet woman like Leslie? Why would any team allow Leslie to work on their star when she has no experience? Who the hell is actually a fan of the Nets? The answers to all of these questions are: If we don't put them in there, there is no movie. Latifah and Common are both very good actors. Latifah has proved how good she can be, and I look forward to seeing Common in more things. This movie is not that film though, and since the filmmakers threw up the softball, I'll just hit it: Just Wright? So Wrong.
