Just Wright (PG)


More of a straight romance movie than romantic comedy, Just Wright is sweet and satisfying without being cloistering. Queen Latifah’s down-played charm connects with that of Common as a believable NBA pro athlete. Latifah’s physical trainer, Leslie, represents a nurturing character archetype that we don’t see celebrated enough in modern cinema. Aside from some formulaic side characters, Just Wright is just that.

Heidi Harris

Before landing in radio, Heidi Harris worked as a lounge singer, TV host and in customer service for a casino. All her life, friends and family urged her to give radio a shot because, well, she likes to talk. That advice ultimately led to the Heidi Harris Show on KDWN (720 AM, 5-9 a.m. weekdays), which draws more than 20,000 listeners between 5-9 a.m. weekdays, and put her on Talker Magazine’s list of “most influential radio hosts” five times.
