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.

Full of cliché's,but entertaining
13 March 2008 | by (Croatia,Pula) – See all my reviews

This is a comedy about a basketball player who dresses into a woman and fall in love in his team mate.Is this movie a masterpiece?Definitely no.Is this movie predictable?Definitely yes.But that's not the problem.This is an average comedy,you will enjoy it if you do not take it too serious.It has some fun moments,and it is not that bad movie.Kevin Pollack is a great in the role of Juwanna's manager,the direction is decent,and it is a light-hearted funny movie good for Sunday evening entertainment.I would recommend this movie to kids who like basketball,i really think that this is a great movie for them.If you are looking unpredictable,great masterpiece then don't watch this.But I think that it is good to accuasionally watch movies of this category to relax and enjoy in the light-hearted story.
