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 »

There is nothing new about the plot to this movie. But, it is pretty funny. I liked the part when Juwanna gets pulled over by the cop and it turns out he wants to become a woman. That was good. Also, when Juwanna gives the women tips about men. And Tommy Davidson was funny as Puff Smokey with his silver teeth and his antics with Juwanna. Of course, at the end, our lead character learns a life lesson and changes his way.
FINAL VERDICT: Not a bad way to pass a Saturday afternoon. It isn't too long and does have some humor.
