Storyline

Leslie Wright is a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight. All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie's childhood friend Morgan, 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? Written by Fox Searclight Pictures

Just right (perfect)
30 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe that this movie was one of the best I have seen yet. I add this movie to my top three favorite movies ever seen. If like me you are a sucker for romance and happiness then this is the movie for you.

The Film Just Wright is a film about Leslie Wright (Queen Latifah) trying to find the right man that completes her. Her biggest problem is that she dresses like a tomboy to make herself feel comfortable, even when she goes on dates. All the men she comes into encounter with want to be nothing more than a friend to her. Her step sister on the other hand, Morgan Alexander (Paula Patton) dresses like a super star. She is always in a dress or something skimpy. In the end Leslie finds the man that completes her Scott McKnight (Common).

Just Wright shows that as long as you are comfortable with yourself eventually you will find someone that is comfortable with you too, "looks aren't always important."

For example, Leslie is a Nets basketball fanatic, and doesn't dress to impress others she dresses to make herself feel comfortable. The scene with Leslie and Scott sitting at the piano was a deep focus shot that shows the closeness between the two of them. In the scene where Morgan closed the door shows how far apart their relationship really was in the movie.

A different technique that also brings the piano scene to show the difference between the two women is the lighting. The low key lighting in the scene with Leslie and Scott shows an intimate interaction between the two of them. Now in the scene with Morgan and Scott the lighting was very high key showing no intimacy between the two.

Another movie that shows this theme would be the movie Titanic. For example, Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) decides to choose poor and scruffy with Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio), over rich and handsome with Caledon 'Cal' Hockley (Billy Zane). Only because Jack allowed her to open up and live life the way she wanted. Cal on the other hand wanted her to live a life of expense and class. All she wants to do was be regular and happy.

Scott in the end was able to see beyond the beauty of Morgan to the soul or Leslie. The person that truly made him happy and wasn't all about his money. A person that would be there for him, no matter what the situation, not even if he loses his career, or his money. Leslie was the woman that stayed by his side and believed in him when he didn't even believe in himself, she showed him true love.
