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. Written by
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 »
Juwanna Mann isn't a horrible movie just a by the numbers comedy. The film has the same jokes that most gender benders comedy's do which get tired after a while. Miguel A .Nunez does good carrying the movie by himself but Tommy Davidson and Kim Wayans steal every scene their in. Ginuwine does a great acting job in his first movie and Mrs.Fox is good as always. While the jokes in the gilm are the same overall the film is good and has a nice message. If Warener had a soundtrack to back the film then it would have been better but I think with out a SDTK Warner may have a sleeper hit on their hands.
