Just Wright | 2010 | PG | - 4.1.3

A thirty-something, single woman (Queen Latifah) is frustrated by losing men to beautiful women who have little besides looks to share with them. While she advances in her career as a physical therapist and lands a job with an injured NBA star player (Common), she's convinced that eventually she'll meet the right man. Spending their time together during his recovery, they both realize that their feelings are more than professional, but his pretty ex-fiancée (Paula Patton) returns and that changes everything. Also with Michael Landes and Pam Grier. Directed by Sanaa Hamri. [1:51]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman kiss and we then see them lying in bed covered with sheets (we see his bare chest and back and her bare shoulders and cleavage) caressing each other and kissing (sex is implied).
 A man and a woman kiss in several scenes. A man and a woman hug and kiss. A man and a woman move close to each other and linger while looking at each other (they do not kiss). A woman caresses a man's face and confesses her feelings for him.

A woman feeds a man food in a seductive fashion. A woman performing physical therapy on a man leans over a table where he's lying and manipulates his leg (his fiancée is alarmed). A woman who is sick with a cold sleeps on a sofa and a man sleeps sitting next to her with his head resting on hers.

A woman talks about not minding hanging around a bunch of "hot sweaty guys" (she's a physical therapist). A woman talks about having "gay-dar" and "ho-dar." A man tells his adult daughter to "have fun on your date."

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
