Storyline Heading
After draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, Dax is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks, including losing his team to his longtime rival. Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend Uncle Drew and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The two men embark on a road trip to round up Drew's old basketball squad and prove that a group of seniors can still win the big one.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - While this basketball-centered comedy is named after and based on a character previously played by NBA star Kyrie Irving in Pepsi commercials, the real star of this film is Lil Rel Howery. Irving and a number of other notable pro basketball stars have substantial roles in the film. Fans of Nick Kroll and especially Tiffany Haddish and Mike Epps may be disappointed by their very limited screen time. While there is some mildly suggestive humor and some language, most parents will find this to be generally safe viewing for pre-teens.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Though it has a few big laughs, 'Uncle Drew' mistakes its goofy pitch for a free pass to be simple with its comedy, and sappy with its emotions.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average But if it's hardly a model of clockwork-like comedic construction, the film at least gives its performers plenty of space to let loose,...
