Adding a street-tough rasp to her voice, Meg Ryan plays Jackie Kallen, the real-life Detroit woman who, against the odds, morphed into a top boxing manager. ''Love & Basketball'''s Omar Epps is the fighter she guides to glory in a long-delayed film directed by and costarring Charles S. Dutton (''Gothika'').
