"Just Write" is a little - no, make that tiny - formula romantic comedy fluff pic full of filler with only two things going for it: Piven and Fenn. Yes, it lags and yes it's silly and predictable. However, the naive trolley-bus driver (Piven) and Hollywood rising star (Penn) do work together. Recommended for those in the mood for romantic comedy but have seen all the big ones.
