Okay - first - I have to mention that there are two tags on this film that are not befitting at all: incestuous and polygamy. I would like to be very clear in stating that there are no brother/sister or inner-family dating each other in this movie. There is also no polygamy - one man with one woman in this film (though this tag I can see why it got confused).

In this basketball related romantic comedy, we find a thriving physical therapist (Queen Latifah) get pulled into a tricky situation while finding her passions and winning a good man in the process. Leslie Wright a sporty physical therapist (Queen Latifah) has just bought a fixer-upper - where her gold-digging (not a slight, the woman's lines are all about how she needs to snag a man whose rich - so she can create a brand name for herself) god-sister lives with her - and one day runs into a professional basketball player. Who instantly gets pursued by her 'better-looking' god-sister. Through a series of mishaps - Leslie ends up having to help Common's character Scott McKnight rehabilitate himself after a sports injury. They slowly gain respect and love for each other - while she trains him to be a better athlete.

I like this movie for several reasons, but the main one is that I like seeing Leslie fight to stay herself - no matter how many people say she needs to change. She shows confidence and ends up learning that she loves helping athletes. And we get to have a romance on the side. I personally think that's a great message for all the Tomboys out there.

I would like to start this review off by stating that I rarely like sport themed movies which definitely makes me biased when reviewing this movie. This film is about a physical therapist who begins working with a basketball star named Scott, who she later falls in love with. This becomes a problem since Scott is much more interested in her more attractive friend, Morgan. I don’t think that it is absolutely necessary to know about sports or like sports in order to get into this movie, but it probably would have helped since I found many scenes to be boring and mundane. I would rate this movie 3/5 stars.

Black romantic comedy that could have been horrible. Wasn't. The whole beauty isn't skin deep/ugly duckling gets just rewards thing is played out, but the movie did it well. Cameoes by NBA talent and a wholesome PG rating made for a sugary sweet rom-com for all ages. Not my thing, but not unwatchable.

A terrific "anti-Cinderella" story, especially for African American women. Leslie Wright is a "big girl", dark skinned, and more comfortable in sweats and scrubs than minidresses and heels. Her godsister Morgan has Black American Princess written all over her: light of skin, delicate of bone, and material of aspiration. While Morgan schemes to meet and marry an NBA star, Leslie happens to charm a player she runs into with her natural humor, intelligence and automotive skills. Of course, fool that he is, he initially goes for Morgan, until he realizes which woman has the actual qualities to be his perfect match. I loved Queen Latifah as Leslie: she is smart, sassy, good at her job, and fiercely devoted to her friends and family. She wins the prince without makeovers or wardrobe changes, but simply by being her awesome self.

Good movie. Queen Latifah was great but the Mr. Wright character should have been played by someone more genuine or believeable.
