Jamal Jeffries is one basketball star who stirs up heat both on and off the court. This player's got game, girls and attitude to spare. But when one confrontation too many gets him booted out of the league, Jamal is going to need a lot more than a good agent to get him back on the courts. He's going to need brains, creative ball-handling, and just the right shade of lipstick. Jamal's only chance to get his game back is to join up with the other league- the women's basketball league. With coerced support from his reluctant agent and a heavily padded sports bra, Jamal transforms himself from the bad boy of basketball to its newest female role model: Juwanna Mann!

The plot involves Nunez who is a star basketball player by the name of Jamal Jeffries,whose ego is only surpassed by the huge meltdown he has during a game in which,among other things,he moons the crowd.He is immediately suspended from the league and without a paycheck his extravagant social life comes crashing down around him.Broke and living with his Aunt,he comes up with a scheme to play in the major womens basketball league.He dresses up(much too convincingly I must say!),cons his former manager into signing him to a contract and ends up playing in the major womens league as he wanted,as Juwanna Mann.He is as successful there as he was with his former male teammates but again his ego starts to get in the way as he becomes a one man/woman team.He eventually falls in love with one of the teammates but learns some much needed life lessons to boot.His cover finally is blown when he does what his manager warned him not to,as he slam dunks a ball and in the process smashes the back glass.At the same time he loses his wig and the con is revealed for all to see.
Sitting before a tribunal to gain access back into the men's major league,his former lady team mates all come to rally around and support him.The film ends as his girlfriend gives him the team winners ring and a kiss.
Well acted all around,the entire cast is a boost to Nunez Jr.,who plays a strikingly beautiful girl player in the film in order to keep playing the game he loves.There are alot of nice comedy moments and Tommy Davidson plays an over the top suitor to Nunez's' Juwanna Mann.The main message of course is the human element of being a good person and overcoming ego to pursue that road.But it is all wrapped up in good fun and that's what counts.
Technically the film is in its a/r of 1:85:1 and the picture is clear and crisp.Extras include a music vid by Fat Joe,the trailer,commentaries,and a behind the scenes featurette.
All in all an above average comedy with a wonderful life lesson lesson in the mix and Miguel Nunez Jr.going the extra mile in his wildly convincing cross-dressing role as Juwanna Mann.It didn't seem to get alot of traction when first released but I think this under rated sleeper is definitely worth the look.
