Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: 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.

Rotten: Queen Latifah made a remarkably natural transition from hip-hop to acting. Such is not the case for rap star Common. Though he looks great on camera, his acting abilities are limited.

I thought this was going to be horrible but I was wrong. I'm not saying it's a great movie because it's not. it's okay but it's boring in a lot of parts but it has good moments. C

Queen Latifah shines in Just Wright! It's a story about a down-to-earth physical therapist who can't seem to fall in love because every guy thinks she's the perfect home-girl. Meanwhile, her beautiful gold-digger best friend's advice is not to show her "true self" until at least after five years of marriage. At a chance encounter at a gas station, Leslie meets her dream guy who just so happens to be a famous basketball player and also her best friend's dream guy but for less than honorable reasons. (Her deepest desire is to be an NBA trophy wife.) As expected, she turns on the charm and steals him from Leslie. The rest of the movie is about McKnight coming to realize that she's only after the fame and money but not his heart. It was a really sweet movie and my husband and I enjoyed it. There was one sex scene but it didn't show anything which is good. Worth a watch.
