It's Big Momma's House on the three-point line in this broad farce, which marks the leading man/woman debut of longtime character actor Miguel A. Nunez. Nunez stars as Jamal Jefferies, a hotheaded pro basketball player whose on-court antics and quick temper get him booted from the league altogether. Faster than you can say Dennis Rodman, Jamal has transformed himself into the busty Juwanna Mann in order to be a forward for a high-intensity team in the WUBA league, the Charlotte Banshees.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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 Shen, Chicago Reader
"Vaughan brings such disregard to the film that its pedestrian on-court action might as well have been shot from the bleacher seats."
‑ Paul Malcolm, L.A. Weekly
"Cross-dressing sports comedy has lockerroom humor."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...about as exciting to watch as two last-place basketball teams playing one another on the final day of the season."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The referee should have cried 'foul' on this long before it hit the screens."
‑ , FilmFour.com
"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 Germain, Associated Press
"A Tootsie-role sports farce that's a drag in every which way."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"As limp as it is lazy."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
"Some like it lukewarm in this tale."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"'Wouldn't it be nice if all guys got a taste of what it's like on the other side of the bra?'"
‑ Anita Schmaltz, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"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 Smith, Time Out
"Simplistic, silly and tedious."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Bogus and wickedly unoriginal."
‑ Andrew Manning, Radio Free Entertainment
"It's hard to know what to make of a film such as this, with its implicit message that it takes men to empower women in sports."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"This mess of a movie is nothing short of a travesty of a transvestite comedy."
‑ Jamie Russell, BBC.com
