Storyline

Leslie Wright is a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight. All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie's childhood friend Morgan, 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? Written by Fox Searclight Pictures

Money well spent
15 May 2010 | by tjjmcappSee all my reviews

I saw the movie last night with friends and really enjoyed the movie. We cried a little, laughed a lot, and cheered Dana Owens. Have you ever had a crush on a guy or girl and thought no, I'm not "their" type? Have you ever wanted something so bad but held it in because you felt it wasn't the right time or thought that's what good girls/shy guys do? Well like many love comedies you watch the story twist and turn and characters take their time interacting one another. You fall in love with the plot of a hard working, funny, down to earth girl having a loving life but receiving even more. It made me proud once again to know that good, smart, talented, sincere girls do win without all the drama. LOVE IT! You will leave the movie wanting more.
