Win FREE passes to see Queen Latifah and Common in "Just Wright"!

Just Wright

By now you’ve probably seen commercials about the soon to be released movie, "Just Wright", starring Queen Latifah, Common and Paula Patton. You can win free passes to the advanced screening of the movie in Aventura but first here’s the synopsis:

JUST WRIGHT stars Queen Latifah (BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE) as Leslie Wright, a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the dream job of working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight (Common – DATE NIGHT). All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie’s gorgeous childhood friend Morgan (Paula Patton - PRECIOUS), who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play the role of “best friend” forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him? Set against the exciting world of championship basketball, the game of love takes on the battle of the sexes in the romantic sports comedy JUST WRIGHT, starring three of Hollywood’s most charismatic personalities as they navigate the full-court-press of love. Visit http://www.foxsearchlight.com/justwright/



Now, doesn’t that seem like a really nice movie? I’m definitely checking it out and will share my review with you later. In spite of Common and Latifah being two of my favorite rap artists, I’ll be honest in my critique. From the trailer, it’s obvious there’s on-screen chemistry between the three main stars.

Steve Harvey @ Barnes & Noble in Aventura

All of my good friends know that I've been talking up Steve Harvey's new book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. That's why you find it a couple places on this blog's sidebar. Well, Steve (as if we're on first name basis) will be in town on April 10 at the Barnes & Noble in Loehmann's Plaza in Aventura.

Since I'll have the day off from work that day, I'll definitely be there. I'm just trying to figure how he's going to sign my Amazon Kindle. Oh, well, that's the least of my worries. I'm rounding up all of my sorority sisters, girlfriends, relatives, co-workers and a few women I don't even like to go with me to meet Steve Harvey and get him to autograph our books.

I've read the book once and re-read a few chapters more than once. I advise all of my female friends to buy this book; read it and buy a copy for another sister, especially the young ones.

Now, I've advised some of my friends, you know who you are, that this book is written pretty much like a conversation with Steve Harvey or at least what I think a conversation with him would be like. It's not high brow, or overflowing with big "A" words, it's real.

So, get your book and read it before you go. The book signing is scheduled to start at 6 pm. It's likely the lines will be extremely long. You know some women will be in line at noon. I won't be in line that early but I'll see you there. Say hello and perhaps you'll be included in our video experience of waiting in line for Steve. :)
