| Camp Sports Movie--Superb but Raw Idea
The material, gender-twisted camp sports movie, is astonishing, but may be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to realize well. A major problem of Juwanna Mann is that unwisely blended fantasy and reality lead the audience to an absurd confusion. If it took place in a perfectly fictitious setting, it could be more persuasive. But the setting obviously refers to the NBA and the WNBA in the real world, and even an average fan can tell what is described in the film is far different from the reality. Also, a moral-learning in coming-of-age manner of a pro star athlete with an arrested development seems forcedly contrived and looks unnatural. Finally, as an enthusiastic WNBA fan myself, I don't appreciate the filmmakers' lack of knowledge in and respect to women's sports.

Overall, the film is all about the superb but raw idea, which is not executed well.
