Better than anticipated.

"This film was one that I at first hesitated to see but was quite impressed when I did. I think Miguel Nunez Jr.(not Orlando Jones) was very funny in this comedy film. Vivica Fox was as lovely as always. In order to see this kind of movie one must come with an open mind and understand it's something not to be taken too seriously. I have to say I'm happy to see Miguel Nunez getting more work and recognition than usual. He's truly a very talented actor and hopefully we'll see more of him. I have to say that I'm a little disappointed that so far there's no soundtrack for the film. It has great music in it."
Reasonably funny comedy if you don't expect too much

"This is good for some laughs and has a heart-warming story in a rather low-key way. But it will disappoint some. Pared-down to a PG-13 rating for whatever purpose, it seems a movie more suited for R-status. Those hoping for nude scenes in obviousplaces will be disappointed, for example. And gender bending issues are treated neither with aiming for depth or with the zaniest humorous effects, though they work somewhat more in the latter sense. Still for undemanding viewers it isn't the worst way to spend an hour and a half."
THE "BULL DURHAM" OF BASKETBALL MOVIES!

"Hoop fans had the choice of not one but two basketball pictures in 2002 - 'lil Bow Wow's truly flacid LIKE MIKE and Warner Bros.' vastly superior JUWANNA MANN. Bounced from the NBA for his incessant bad behaviour, Jamal Jeffries (Miguel A. Nunez, Jr.), plucks his brows, shaves his legs, and takes to the court of the WBA as the sassy and flashy Juwanna Mann, (Vivica A. Fox). Liberally sprinkled with moments of humour and insight, JUWANNA MANN is a "slam-dunk" to please hoop fans and students of the human condition alike."
