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

In a scene in which McKnight says he's been trying to reach Morgan all day and is told she's been shopping, he and Leslie watch a report from "Mike & Mike in the Morning" on ESPN. The Mike & Mike Show airs live from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM. Therefore, McKnight could not have been trying "all day" to reach her nor could she have been shopping long. See more »


Leslie Wright: He can't even open up the gas tank until I hooked him up.

its ok
7 October 2020 | by Wisesoldierthe6See all my reviews

Not a fan of Latifa this is the only Latifa movie i've ever seen. I;ve never heard a song by "her" either. Common as a rapper, is just pure Common sense. Seems most rappers always rapper-actors.

Common does a good job. He can act well. Better than most rapper-actors.

The story is simple. Some "female" phys therapist no one wants is looking for love. A B-Ball player who is a playa can't settle down until he meets a fat chick. Drama, Blah blah. He gets injured from basketball, Fat chick become his nurse. Fat chick gets some motivation and things pick up in her life. They leave each other after a big fight and misunderstanding. By the end they realize they need each other. B-Ball player after getting the fat chick plays b-ball again, and they live happily ever after...or do they?

Verdict: If you wanna cliche sports-lover story involving a fat chick then this is yo movie, cuz if it ain't, then thats some Common Sense.
