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
Although there were a couple of unbelievable things in the movie I was pleasently surprised by this laugh fest. Mr. Miguel A. Núñez Jr. does a brilliant job of immatating a woman very convincingly. I was very glad I changed my mind and decided to watch it.
I should mention that when I saw the ads for this movie I thought it had to be the "stupedist" movie ever made. So I refused to watch it. One evening, when there was nothing on to my liking, I saw Juwanna Mann was playing so I watched it b/c I could always turn the TV off...
I started laughing out loud and enjoying it more and more. The movie, and Mr. Núñez's acting, was able to turn me around and I had a good time watching this fun movie. 9/10
