The idea of transposing the story to the macho, greedy world of big-time sports is promising, but director Jesse Vaughan delivers only flat dialogue and predictable situations.
-Ted ShenFull Review
The movie is sloppily edited, the gags limply staged, the dialogue and jokes stiff and stale. Even the action on the basketball court is unimaginative and boring.
-David GermainFull Review
A Tootsie-role sports farce that's a drag in every which way.
-Owen GleibermanFull Review
Simplistic, silly and tedious.
-Richard RoeperFull Review
This flat run at a hip-hop Tootsie is so poorly paced you could fit all of Pootie Tang in between its punchlines.
-Laura SinagraFull Review
[Brings] absolutely no fresh angles to a time-tested formula that's seemed particularly overworked of late.

The title, alone, should scare any sane person away.
Tired and flat as a dead basketball.
-Ann HornadayFull Review
For it to work, you have to accept the irredeemable stupidity of almost every character.

You can thank me for this. I saw Juwanna Mann so you don't have to.
-Geoff PevereFull Review
About the best thing I can say about Juwanna Mann is that it's not dreadful.
-Erik LundegaardFull Review
Flat, misguided comedy.
-Carla MeyerFull Review
A lot of talent is wasted in this crass, low-wattage endeavor.
-Gene SeymourFull Review
A sad and rote exercise in milking a played-out idea -- a straight guy has to dress up in drag -- that shockingly manages to be even worse than its title would imply.
-Charles SavageFull Review
Hollywood might consider retiring this comic subgenre for a while until someone comes up with a more original take.
Has little on its mind aside from scoring points with drag gags.
Beyond a handful of mildly amusing lines ... there just isn't much to laugh at.
-Janice PageFull Review
Here's a truly novel sports film: It actually has a script, decent acting, sympathetic characters. And it's fun.
-Ray ConlogueFull Review
I can't recommend Juwanna Mann and yet I admire the pluck of the actors, especially Nunez, Fox and Tommy Davidson.
-Roger EbertFull Review
This zillionth comedy about a guy who learns valuable lessons from his time as a woman is remarkably lacking in inspiration.
A sloppy, amusing comedy that proceeds from a stunningly unoriginal premise.
-A.O. ScottFull Review
It's disappointing when filmmakers throw a few big-name actors and cameos at a hokey script.
-Rasmi SimhanFull Review
It's tempting to call traveling on Juwanna Mann, except it never goes anywhere. This film fouls out.
-Robert K. ElderFull Review
The cast ... is pretty much defeated by the material.
Cross-dressing sports comedy has lockerroom humor.
-Nell MinowFull Review
As limp as it is lazy.
-Anna SmithFull Review
An unpersuasive moral journey, with a smattering of laughs, that fails to justify the insulting premise that only a man can help the ladies win at both basketball and love.
-Anna SmithFull Review
Bogus and wickedly unoriginal.
