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.

If you are looking for a film where a trash-talking basketball player must become a woman to learn how to act like a member of a team, this film is for you. That's what the previews showed me, and that's what I got. Nothing really shocking or creatively new in this film.
Is the acting okay? Adequate. The directing? Nothing special. Plot? Predictable.
Sorry I can't offer a longer review, but the only thing I can say about this film is the man makes a decent woman. Not an attractive one, but passable. This is the kind of film you watch if it's on television and you don't have cable and are too sick to go outside. Not sure why else you'd make a point to see this unless three sadistic brothers made you.
