Time Out says
Although replete with solid support and even stronger goodwill, ‘Just Wright’ buckles under the burden of its intentions. Too many auxiliary, moralising plot points and characters appear, only to vanish again. Common convinces as a hoops dynamo, though less so when trying to rustle up chemistry with Latifah; their one love scene is mercifully short. The film may tote out a good line or two about keeping it real, but too much of this love triangle rings false.
