Jamal Jeffries (Miguel A. Nunez, Jr.) is the star player for pro basketball team the Charlotte Beat, until his out-of-control behavior gets him fired, and no other team will take him. Soon his swanky mansion is being repossessed and he's stuck carrying groceries for his Aunt Ruby. Then he hits on an idea crazy enough to work: He disguises himself as a woman, dubbed Juwanna Mann, and with the unwitting help of his long-suffering agent (Kevin Pollack) lands a contract with the WNBA Charlotte Banshees. At first it's just a chance to flaunt his skills, but soon Jamal is learning the value of teamwork, especially after he falls head over heels for Banshee captain Michelle (Vivica Fox). The film relies on a colorful string of familiar cliches, but they succeed because of its witty script and winning cast. Of particular note are IN LIVING COLOR alumni Kim Wayans as a shy lesbian and Tommy Davidson as the gold-teeth-flashing Puff Smokey Smoke, who falls for Juwanna. R&B crooner Ginuwine is Puff's honey smooth pal Romeo, who is two-timing Michelle. WNBA stars such as Teresa Witherspoon appear as themselves. JUWANNA MANN is the first feature film for music video director Jesse Vaughan.
