Roger EbertFull Review Good Here Common isn't called upon to do much heavy lifting in the acting department, but he plays well with Queen Latifah. Sure, the movie is a formula. A formula that works reminds us of why it became a formula.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 114 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They loved it. I'm assuming these children are at the higher end of this age range ( 8 to 12) because this movie probably wouldn't appeal to young children.
TEENS:Females rated "Just Wright" extremely high. Unfortunately there were no male reviews.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Fantastic Reviews from the ladies! They all loved "Just Wright." The male reviews are quite a bit lower, but certainly not bad. Two-thirds of them enjoyed it very much and the remaining third rated it "Good/Average," which is decent for this type of movie.
ADULTS:GREAT REVIEWS FROM BOTH MALES AND FEMALES! Seventy-five percent loved "Just Wright," and most of the rest enjoyed it very much. Equally important is that only a few rated it as low as "Good/Average," and no one disliked it.
