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.

Just wrong and not very good.

Disturbingly incestuous hetero "romance" in which a male basketball player vacillates sexually between 2 female cousins who live like sisters. His interest varies depending on which of them happens to be advancing his ego and his career the most at any given time. Considering its plot line, the last things I'd call this film are "cute" or "good morals". It was also sad to see how botched cosmetic work has devastated the once-beautiful face of Bill Cosby's former TV wife, Phylicia Rashād.
