Storyline

Juwanna Mann follows the story of Jamal Jeffries, the reigning 'bad boy' of basketball, whose undisciplined on-court antics land him out of the league and without any prospects. Financially strapped and untrained in anything but basketball, Jamal comes up with a plan so outrageous it just might work: dress up like a woman and try out for the woman's basketball league. To his surprise, he makes it, but now the real challenge begins - to cease being Jamal and start new life as Juwanna. Matters become even more complicated when Juwanna realizes that he is falling for his teammate Michelle, who shows him that there is more to women than meets the eye.

Goofs

On one of the first shots taken during the women's basketball sequences, the shot clock above the basket reads "45." Years ago, men's college basketball played with a 45-second shot clock, but women have always used the 30-second clock, thus the shot clock would never read "45" in a women's pro game. See more »

Good for a couple laughs
20 June 2002 | by (King of Prussia, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

After building and screening this film I come to a very simple conclusion. This film is good for a few good laughs. Don't expect any more than the previews give you. Very predictable plot along with simple comedy. You can't blame them for trying, I guess.
