This film centers upon Leslie Wright (Queen Latifah), a physical therapist. She and her god-sister, Morgan (Paula Patton), live together. While both ladies are single, the more glamourous and shallow Morgan is constantly dating in order to become a trophy wife. Leslie, who is more down-to-earth, is all too often seen by men as the cool friend who happens to be a girl. Leslie’s parents, Lloyd (James Pickens, Jr.) and Janice (Pam Grier), are very supportive of both Leslie and Morgan; Janice especially hopes love happens for her daughter.
