  1. Here's a truly novel sports film: It actually has a script, decent acting, sympathetic characters. And it's fun.
  2. Reviewed by: Mike Clark
    This isn't the worst movie Warner Bros. has brought out this summer (Scooby-Doo, boo on you), but for it to work, you have to accept the irredeemable stupidity of almost every character. Time better spent: a Shaquille O'Neal film festival on video.
  3. 40
    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.
  4. As anyone who has peered in on the actual WNBA for five minutes knows, professional women basketball players are as tough as men. That the film treats this as a joke isn't funny -- it's the height of lame condescension.
  5. It's all so insincere, you can almost imagine the filmmakers rubbing their hands together at the prospect of ripping off the public.
  6. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Bringing absolutely no fresh angles to a time-tested formula that's seemed particularly overworked of late.
  7. 0
    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.
